We will die with Buhari if he comes to Enugu, any Biafraland, IPOB threatens

Ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari’s scheduled visit to Enugu State on December 22, the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has said that its members are ready to die with him if he dares come to Enugu.

The group called on the President to bury any idea of visiting any part of the region until all those detained are released, and Amnesty International report investigated, adding, that any governor or Igbo politician that invites Buhari to Enugu will be taught a lesson of his life.

This was contained in a statement signed by IPOB spokespersons, Barrister Emma Nmezu and Dr. Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya and made available to newsmen on Monday.

The statement read in part, “We have received information that Retired Major General Muhammadu Buhari who committed treason on December 31, 1983, and was rewarded with Nigeria’s presidency after 32 years, will be visiting Enugu-Biafraland on the 22nd of December, 2016.

“We assert that inviting a persecutor of Biafrans to our land is an insult to the memory of those killed. Therefore, we object totally to this visit.

“We warn any governor or Igbo politician that receives Buhari in Enugu will have himself or herself to blame. We make it public that should there be a breakdown of law and order in Enugu on the 22nd of December, greedy Igbo politicians will have themselves to blame.

“Until all those detained are released, and Amnesty International report investigated, Buhari is not allowed into any part of Biafraland. Let Buhari know that if he (Buhari) comes to Enugu or any part of Biafraland, we will die with him there.

“Should Buhari attempt to set foot on Enugu soil everybody involved, from Bart Nnaji to Governor Ugwuanyi will regret it. These criminal Igbo politicians without any iota of shame must know that Buhari is the grand patron of the terrorist Fulani herdsmen that have been rampaging and killing our people in Enugu and other parts of Biafraland in the name of Islam.

“Any Governor or Igbo politician who is stupid enough to invite Buhari into our capital will be taught a lesson that will reverberate in history. They should try us and see. A word is enough for the wise!”
