The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB) has described the purported killing of a military commander recently at the barracks of the 14 Army Brigade in Ohafia, Abia State, by thunder as an act of God in fighting for the oppressed.
The group claimed that the deceased soldier had been involved in grand conspiracy of terrorizing and tormenting the people of the area overtime.
A statement circulated by the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB to journalists on Sunday, said that the army authorities were hiding the circumstances surrounding the commander’s death from the public.
The group pronounced more misfortunes against its predators, saying that the anger of God was imminent.
It maintained that most of such security operatives were sent to Biafra land to prosecute jihad.
The statement partly read: “The global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the Prophet and indefatigable liberator, Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu, gives praises to Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama for showing Himself Mighty to the 14 Brigade of the Nigeria Army barracks in Ohafia LGA of Abia State.
“God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama, The Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, manifested Himself recently by invoking heavenly thunder that struck the Army Commandant Commanding 14 Military barracks in Ohafia dead.
“It’s unbelievable that after God of thunder struck the Army Commander dead, Nigerian Army who are myopic of God’s wrath, went about arresting and abducting innocent Biafrans in Ohafia LGA Abia State as if they were responsible for the divine judgement on their Commander.
“If Nigerian Army, especially those compromised terrorist officers sent for jihad operations in Biafra don’t repent, thunder will be striking more of them down.
“Nigerian Government and its security agencies should know that the anger of Elohim has come against them for wantom wasting of innocent blood of children of the Rising Sun. The economic and security crises being experienced in Nigeria today is a punishment from Elohim. It will get worse until Nigeria lets go of Biafra.
“It’s a pity that Nigerian government and her compromised security agencies, particularly the army, police, and DSS agents keep killing Biafrans without questions. Now that the anger of God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama has risen against them, they will answer questions to Chukwu Okike Himself. Soon both Police and DSS will have their own share. Those who enjoy eliminating innocent Biafrans because they were involved in the agitation for Biafra’s freedom will certainly pay for their sins one day.
The pro-Biafra agitators added: “We are warning Nigeria Army to release our people they have abducted, repent and plead with Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama before more calamities will visit them.
“IPOB warns them to stay off IPOB activities and mind themselves because God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama will strike again all the criminal security officers who enjoy killing IPOB members and Biafrans for nothing.
” The revenge from our ancestors and from the throne of God has commenced and they shall avenge the wickedness against Biafrans by the Nigerian establishment and their international collaborators. The liberation of Biafra is assured and the freedom of the children of light is certain.”
While warning the police, army, Department of State Services (DSS) and allied government operatives to stop homicides in the region, the group noted that its purpose of actualizing a sovereign State of Biafra was a just and divine cause.
