Arrest those behind ‘quit notice’ to prove clampdown on hate speeches, IPOB tells Buhari

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to prove his seriousness about clamping down on hate speeches by arresting those behind the ‘quit notice’ order to Igbo in the North by the Arewa Youths.

IPOB, which reiterated its call on southerners in the core north to obey the order and return before October 1, said yesterday that rescinding of the order was inconsequential to it as it was sure that history would repeat itself.

In a statement by the Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful, the group said, “it’s inconsequential to IPOB whether the ‘quit notice’ is rescinded or not because it will in no way impact the pace and direction of our effort to restore Biafra. We urge all southerners in the core North to return home before October 1, as history will most definitely repeat itself.

“Southerners were massacred in the pogroms of 1966 and 1967 after similar assurances were issued then that people should remain in the North. The presence of a serving governor and senator, during the supposed press briefing confirms what we have always known that the incitement to genocide which is what the ‘quit notice’ is all about, has the blessing of the Arewa political class.

“It betrays the mindset of those clamouring for One Nigeria as irredeemable blood thirsty psychopaths hiding behind ethnic bigotry to unleash what will amount to the 15 mass murder of non indigenes resident in core Arewa North. If President Buhari is at all serious about clamping down on hate speech, he should arrest those behind the ‘quit notice’ along with their sponsors.”

IPOB further said that, “Trying to drag the name of our revered leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu into their blood fest will be resisted. If the idea is to cower our leader with calls for his arrest, then those behind the genocidal edict of Igbos must leave the North are even more dumb than we thought. Nigeria is crumbling today before our eyes due to the arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, those wishing for him to be arrested again is basically signing the death warrant of Nigeria.

“Our quest to restore Biafra is unstoppable and the sooner the Islamic Arewa North knows this, the better for everyone. If Nigeria has any case against Nnamdi Kanu they should present it before the law courts and not recruiting barely literate street urchins to issue a threat of mass extermination of Igbos living in the North.

“We are not afraid of the fabled Fulani hegemonic juggernaut that has literally steamrolled every other ethnicity in Nigeria into submission because we are Biafrans. Threats don’t have any effect on us, so our advice to Arewa North is to please stick to the October 1 deadline or else they have no honour.
