Published

on

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Saturday described the killing of the daughter of Afenifere leader, Funke Fasoranti Olakunrin by killer suspected herdsmen as barbaric and an affront against the Yoruba race.

According to the group in a statement “Action better than words of fury”, by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, such shouldn’t be allowed to go unpunished.

The statement read thus: “Press statements and lamentations will not stop the invaders, only concrete mass action can and we are ever ready.”

IPOB said in the statement that there is a Jihads mission supported by the present administration in Nigeria.

It said that “the Jihadi mission is to terrorise, subjugate and enslave everybody unfortunate enough to be part of the British colonial experiment in Nigeria.”

It said, “the brazen terror attack in Yorubaland by terrorist which led to the killing of the daughter of Chairman the Afanifere, Funke Fasoranti Olakunrin is regrettable, evil and action intended to be used to intimidate, harass and subjugate and enslave everybody in Nigeria, iris also to a timely warning to Yoruba.”

“The brazen terror attack on Yoruba soil by Fulani terrorists yesterday must not go unanswered, ignored or be allowed to be swept under the carpet because of the selfish party interest.

“Let the murder of the daughter of Afenifere Chairman Funke Fasoranti Olakunrin by terrorists be another sombre but timely reminder to the great Yoruba race and their media in particular that supporting evil has its unintended consequences.

“I hate to say it but this sad incident goes to underscore the prediction I made long ago – that this Government of Nigeria as constituted from 2015 is a murderous cabal on a Jihadi mission to terrorise, subjugate and enslave everybody unfortunate enough to be part of the British colonial experiment gone mad called Nigeria.

“I specifically warned the Yoruba race and their dominant media that supporting atrocities against Biafra and suppression of the truth about the true identity of Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani because of Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition will not only be counter-productive but will turn around to consume them. They called me a merchant of hate speech. Today I ask them, what is happening?

“It is unfortunate that at a time of great peril like this, weak men hand-picked by the same Fulani caliphate that is persecuting everybody today, are the ones in charge of the leadership of the South. Fulani terror will only stop when we confront them with an equal force, mere words will not do it.

“It is time that those immoral and spineless Yoruba media should shoulder the blame for the death of this prominent Yoruba daughter and the wider rampaging savagery of Fulani herdsmen across Nigeria.

“They failed to objectively report the truth but instead chose to malign and attack IPOB that saw the danger the country was sliding into the way ahead of everybody.

“The time for the mother of all popular resistance is now not tomorrow. Only an IPOB led mass revolution will save the day because we are the only ones with a history of resistance against the vandals from the Sahel.

“The sooner the youths of the Middle Belt and South West rise up to join IPOB to dismantle the terror government group and chart a new course for the respective ethnic nationalities that make up Nigeria, the better our chances of survival or else we are all doomed.

“Press statements and lamentations will not stop the invaders, only concrete mass action can and we are ever ready.”
