IPOB AGITATION: Buhari's South-East Visit Compared To 'Hitler In Jerusalem'
The leadership of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has threatened to deal with the Ebonyi State governor Dave Umahi and his family for agreeing to host the president.
The group also advised President Buhari to shelve his planned visit to Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital on Tuesday.
Buhari is scheduled to visit Ebonyi on Tuesday and Anambra State on Wednesday.
The group, in a statement on Monday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said the visit if not shelved would have dire consequences.
“Bringing Buhari to insult the memory of those killed at Enugu, Nkpor, Igweocha, Aba, Onitsha and lastly Umuahia will not be tolerated by IPOB and every right thinking Biafran for that matter.
“This is tantamount to an Israeli politician inviting Adolf Hitler to visit Jerusalem to mock the Jews he slaughtered in concentration camps during the holocaust.
“Tuesday 14th November 2017 will be recorded in history as a very bloody day should Buhari attempt to land on Biafran soil. We have remained passive and peaceful but it appears that the Hausa Fulani slave politicians in Igboland are hell bent on provoking us to become violent.
“Whoever advised Ohaneze Ndigbo and Igbo governors to embark on this suicide mission does not wish them well,” the group stated.
“They are planning to welcome a man in the name Buhari, a name that is responsible for the worst war crimes and genocide in recent times against our people.
“The only atrocity left, for the likes of Nnia Nwodo and Dave Umahi, is for Biafraland to be transformed into a giant estate of the Fulani caliphate, with small labour camps owned by their emirs, with Biafrans as their labouring slaves.
“Buhari it should be noted, is also planning to visit Anambra State on Wednesday 15th November in order to put executive finishing touches to the APC rigging plot to install the caliphate’s latest young Igbo recruit Tony Nwoye.
“This they hope will cement the ongoing humiliation and conquest of our people. God forbid!
“We will die with him should he set his foot on the sacred land of Biafra. He will not go back alive. He is coming to mock us and to urinate on the graves of our 91 brethren that his Operation Python Dance killed in Abia State.
“He is coming to show us that power belongs to the North and their slaves like Nnia Nwodo and Dave Umahi are in charge over their conquered territory and defeated people of Biafra.
“He has come to tell us we are forever slaves of his Islamic caliphate. Buhari is only coming to confirm to us that he is our lord and master. We will not accept it.
“He can lord it over Ohaneze Ndigbo, Igbo governors and Abuja rent boys but never over we die-hard Biafrans. The governor that invited him will definitely pay a heavy price, he and his children.
“All those who plotted this visit will pay dearly. When the time comes their Northern masters will not be around to save them. We see them coming but they will not see us when the time for vengeance comes.
“Those who are hoping to welcome Buhari to Biafraland will suffer miserably. There will be no forgiveness.
“We have tried for years to avoid bloodshed, but our enemies have finally provoked us beyond measure. We are going to perish together with this ‘Buhari’. It’s a promise,” the banned group threatened.
