Biafra: IPOB Reacts To Military Checkpoints In South-East

Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has expressed rage over recent activities of officers of the Nigerian army in the South-East, particularly in Abia State.

The pro-Biafra group was reacting to the killing of a commercial motorcycle operator by a trigger-happy soldier in Aba over his alleged refusal to pay N100 daily illegal toll at Ohanze, in Obingwa LGA of the State.

They have, therefore, called for the immediate dismantling of multiple military checkpoints across South-East saying the zone is being treated as a conquered territory.

IPOB in a press release signed by the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, claimed that Ndigbo were being punished by the Northern-dominated army for opposing the controversial Ruga settlement.

“The unprovoked attack and unnecessary killing of Biafrans by Fulani dominated Nigerian Army throughout Biafranland has taken another gruesome dimension since the emphatic rejection of Fulani Ruga settlements and National Life Stock Programmes (NLSP) by Biafrans.”

IPOB lamented that the most annoying thing about the dastardly act was that the killer-soldier followed the victim to his house and shot him in front of his wife and other family members as if he killed a wild animal.

“That a Nigerian Army chased a young man into his village and shot him dead in his compound in front of his wife and family is wickedness taken too far.”
