The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said that he set up the Biafra Security Service so as to provide security for Biafrans people.
Kanu, who spoke yesterday shortly after his visit to Senator Enyinna Abaribe, said the federal government had failed to protect the people.
He said Fulani herdsmen has been killing Biafra people while the police failed to address the issue.
“I will not do anything that will bring dishonour to my people. There is no reason for people to be afraid of the internal operation of IPOB.
“We want to stop the menace of Fulani herdsmen in our land. In the north, they have the Hisbah police, they have the Sharia police. They even have the Janjaweed police. Here, we have nothing.
“We need to protect this very land. We want to protect the Fulani men from rustling.
“The police have done nothing. Fulani herdsmen are operating everywhere.
“President Buhari spoke; he never mentioned the menace of Fulani herdsmen. His interest was Biafra agitation. It doesn’t work for me. I am a Biafran.”
Radio Biafra Further took to their facebook page to cry out;
The Nigerian government has continued her double standard on issues of national discourse. Passionate hatred and gross marginalization is when Hisbah sharia police is operational in Northern Nigeria while Southern Nigeria is left at the mercy of Fulani herdsmen.
Again, Hate and marginalization is when Hisbah sharia Police is fully operational in Northern Nigeria and there was no threat from Nigerian government to clamp them down but the emergence of Biafra Security Service (BSS) has been condemned from all quarters and the Nigerian government has called the DSS, Nevy, Army and Police to arrest, detain and even kill our people because a non-violent security outfit was established in the old Eastern region to protect our people.
When we talk they will tag it a hate speech, you cannot beat a child and tell him not to cry, we shall resist this intimidation with the last drop of our blood.
