The indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB has started doing something different since president Muhammadu Buhari made a statement that he was going to consider the release of Nnamdi.
Recall that after the statement released by the president on the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra sent a warning message to unknown gunmen killing innocent people in the southeast region to stop their heinous activities.
The elders and leaders of the Southeast region paid a visit to president Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, 19th November, 2021. They visited president Muhammadu Buhari to plead with him to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu who has been in detention.
After that visit, the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra seem to be happy with the statement made by President Muhammadu Buhari concerning the release of Nnamdi Kanu.
After that statement, the leaders and members of Biafra warned unknown gunmen who have been causing tension and fear among the people in the southeast region.
Again, the leaders of the the Indigenous People of Biafra has declared war against methamphetamine consumers in the South- East and its environs.
Media and Publicity Secretary of the secessionist group, Emma Powerful, disclosed this on Tuesday in a statement made available to our correspondent in Awka, the Anambra State capital.
Describing youth consumption of the drug known as Mkpurummiri in local parlance as an ugly trend, the Biafra agitators asked communities to monitor where such drugs were being sold in their localities and report to IPOB offices nearest to them.
The statement read in part, ” We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra notes with utter displeasure, a very ugly and disturbing trend among some youths in Biafra land who have resorted to the consumption of a destructive hard drug methamphetamine known as ” Mkpurummiri” . This development is very strange and completely unacceptable.
” It is this same hard drug that renders Almajiris in the North useless, and we won’ t allow this madness to creep in or fester among Biafran youths. We observe how the Department of State Services was using Mkpurummiri to create many problems among the North that metamorphosed into Alamajiri and janjaweed in the North.
” We won’ t allow that to happen here in the regions; we encourage every community to have departments to checkmate those selling and taking Mkpurummiri. ”
While accusing some security agencies of complicity in the racketeering of the hard drug, IPOB said, ” Communities must ensure they report those involved in this madness to IPOB office for proper torturing because we don’ t want this into our territory.
” IPOB hereby declare war against this nonsense. We shall go after those taking or distributing this harmful illicit drug. Henceforth, anyone found peddling, consuming or in any way involved in the distribution of this illicit drug shall be decisively dealt with.
” Biafran youths are known for their enterprising spirit and diligence. IPOB will not allow evil men and unpatriotic elements to ruin or destroy the future of our youths with Mkpurummiri. ”
While commending communities who had risen to curb the menace, IPOB solicited useful information from the public about those behind the distribution of the drug so they would be dealt with accordingly.
