The Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), has said that the operatives of the Eastern Security Network, (ESN) do not have a hand in the murder of Fatima and her four children in Anambra state.
Recall that a pregnant Hausa woman named Fatima and her four kids were murdered in cold blood in Anambra state
IPOB made it known that it’s an abomination to kill a pregnant woman in Igboland, saying ESN has no connection with the murder of the Hausa woman and her kids.
Emma Powerful, the spokesman of IPOB, alleged that Fulanis murdered Fatima in a bid to cause disaffection between Igbos and Hausas.
In a statement, Powerful warned that those behind her murder must pay for their abominable act.
“We have always said it that terrorists were imported into Biafra land to commit the ongoing atrocities all in an attempt to discredit our struggle, demonise IPOB and proscribe it then lobby and bribe Britain to tag us a terror group with the hope to stop our march to freedom but the doubters who already have a predetermined belief will not listen.
“The husband said he ran away from his home state Adamawa because of terrorists pursuing him and his family members. How are we sure that those pursuing him from his place were not behind to this wicked murder of this pregnant woman and her children? The people pursuing him can come here and kill them to give the impression that Igbos and IPOB killed them. We can’t kill pregnant women and children is an abomination in our land.
“Those involved in the barbarity of killing the Hausa woman and children in Agulu should wait for the repercussions of the evil they committed against the innocent woman and children. The criminals behind this barbarity should be prepared to pay for their heinous crimes.
“IPOB has severally called these criminals to allow Hausa citizens to do their legitimate business in our land because Hausa suffer the same fate we are facing in the hands of Fulani terrorists claiming they are herdsmen in Nigeria
“Fulani people decided to kill the woman and her children and blame it on IPOB so that Hausa people can help them start killing Igbo people living in the North because they know they can’t do it again. The Hausas leaders must not fall for this Fulani gimmick. We assure them that the Hausa community in Biafraland are safe and should continue to live their normal life amongst our people and go about their legitimate businesses.”
