The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has warned former governor of Abia State, Orji Kalu, the five south east governors and other “traitors” of their cause of a looming attack on them by angry Biafran mob “the same way Romans rose against the murderous Brutus and his gang that slayed the popular Julius Ceasar.
The pro-Biafra group issued the threat in a statement on Sunday by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, adding that it will drag Mr. Orji Kalu alongside the Chief Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai over the disappearance of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
IPOB said its decision to institute legal action against both men was for them to disclose what they know “about the whereabouts of Nnamdi Kanu.”
It claimed that Kalu has been working with some South East Governors to “slaughter as many IPOB family members as possible in order to please the core North.”
The statement read, “IPOB through her lawyers will compel Orji Uzor Kalu to appear in court alongside Buratai on the October 17, 2017 to tell the world, under oath, what he claims to know about the whereabouts of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“His laughable assertion that the IPOB leader is in London is confirmation that all along he has been working in tandem with Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu, Willie Obiano, Rochas Okprocha and others to slaughter as many IPOB family members as possible in order to please the core North.
“Any right thinking person, aware of the dubious upbringing of Orji Uzor Kalu and his fraudulent paternity claim against the famous businessman Nnanna Kalu, a man that publicly denied him, should dismiss his latest antics as another calculated attempt to endear himself more to his Hausa Fulani Islamic handlers.
“The question Orji Uzor Kalu must answer is this, if indeed you are Nnanna Kalu’s son, why do you tell people you come from Igbere when the man you fraudulently claim is your father is not from there.
“Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu before his abduction by Nigerian Army has brought an end to the era of cash and carry politics politics of subservience to Hausa Fulani to the detriment of Biafra. That was why he flatly rejected your monetary offer to him to compromise his uncompromising stance on Biafra restoration.
“Thankfully today you have told the world that Nnamdi Kanu cannot be bought. The politics of selling the interest of the East to the North is why all Hausa Fulani stooges in government houses across the South East ganged up with their Hausa Fulani masters to kill Nnamdi Kanu and proscribe IPOB. Their wish having come through, they are now lining up to exonerate the military because they know their names will be mentioned as accomplices to mass murder of IPOB family members.
“Orji Uzor Kalu and his co-conspirators must await the fury of the people which is slowly building up. The same way Romans rose against the murderous Brutus and his gang that slayed the popular Julius Ceasar, so will the mob in Biafraland descend on all traitors in no distant time. Planning and executing the mass murder of IPOB members including our leader and looking to cover up your complicity with bare faced lies, will expose and render Orji Uzor Kalu inconsequential and expose him for the Hausa Fulani slave he truly is. The masses will set an example with the likes of Orji Uzor Kalu, Okezie Ikpeazu and Willie Obiano in no distant time that other quislings like them may learn.
“We have formally instructed our attorneys to add the name of Orji Uzor Kalu as one of those who might help in locating of our leader. He should be prepared to present his evidence in a court of law and be cross examined under oath. The surviving members of Kanu family have all denied ever talking to the lying Orji Uzor Kalu about the whereabouts of our leader, so he should be prepared to mount the witness box because his lies have gone on for far too long.”
Orji Kalu had told the Punch on Sunday that Kanu had escaped from Nigeria and now in London.
IPOB insists that the Nigerian military abducted their leader and his parents after its troops invaded their Afara Ukwu country home in Abia State in September. Since the invasion, their whereabouts have remained a subject of speculation.
The pro-Biafra group also alleged that 22 of its supporters were killed during the Afara-Ukwu raid. They supported their claims with graphic videos of the massacre.
