Picture of a youth killed by a Nigerian soldier
“Today, a soldier killed this child at Afor Awomanma in a frenzy to enforce the illegal military occupation of #Orlu that started last week. It’s now obvious that they won’t keep to their promise of ordering soldiers off Orlu. Well, I tell you this: You will HEAR from us, soon.” – stated Mazi Nnamdi Kanu through his twitter handle at https://twitter.com/MaziNnamdiKanu.

The leader of the proscribed group by the name the Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB] made the statement February 4, 2021 following a siege in Orlu inside the south eastern state of Imo between the men and women of the Nigerian security forces and the members of IPOB. The siege had resulted in the killing of police officers and other security members of Nigeria. The IPOB claimed none of the members of IPOB were killed. But corpses of civilians were seen littered on the streets of Orlu. The leader of IPOB stated that the corpses were of innocent citizens killed by the Nigerian security forces.
The IPOB had establish a security group to enforce the ban of open graving by the Fulani herdsmen who have been told by the IPOB leader to vacate the south east and south south regions of Nigeria. A region he refers to as Biafraland.
The chief security officers [Governors] of the south eastern states had rejected the move by the IPOB leader – and distanced themselves from the security outfit formed by the IPOB. But the south east governor has yet to provide an alternative to the security outfit launched by IPOB – to help curtail the activities of the killer herdsman.
With the latest statement from the leader of IPOB, it is expected for violence to return to the streets of south east region of Nigeria. The members of the Nigerian security forces stationed in the South east and south regions find themselves in a tensed panic.
