Kanu's lawyer condemns the killing of northern mother, children • Faults northern group's accusation against IPOB • Charges security agents to investigate killings By Lawson Ozoemela The Biafra Times 26th May 2022 Foremost counsel to the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Ifeanyi Ejiofor has taken a swipe against (a) Coalition of Northern Group [CNG], upon an accusation it levelled against the freedom movement. In a press release, the Northern group had alleged IPOB, and the Eastern Security Network, ESN, were responsible for the violent attacks of its people in the South-East; particularly, the reported killing of a northern woman and her four children, by unidentified gunmen, last Sunday. CNG's spokesperson Abdul-Azzez Suleman had stated that: ". . . We note that hate campaigns and propaganda being conducted and created by certain interest groups in the South-East in the form of regional and ethnic agitators have emboldened the outlawed terrorist IPOB/ESN to carry out these unprovoked evictions, attacks, killings, destructions of properties and other forms of violations against northerners in various parts of the South- East. We are particularly disturbed by the reports of the brutal murder of a mother and her four children for the only sin of being northerners." Meanwhile, in a statement made available to The Biafra Times, the legal luminary refuted the insinuation implying that IPOB was culpable of the mayhem in the South-East of the country; noting that the "barbaric killings are the handiwork of strangers in our land". This is "condemnable and unacceptable," Ejiofor said. The IPOB's lawyer further called upon security agents to investigate the consecutive violence in the region. The statement reads: RE: STATEMENT BY THE COALITION OF NORTHERN GROUPS (CNG) IN RESPONSE TO THE INCESSANT KILLINGS OF NORTHERNERS IN SOUTH-EAST May 24, 2022 by Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, CNG SPOKESPERSON: Recall my publication on Sunday, 22nd May 2022 via my certified Facebook page, where I alerted the public of the presence of strangers in our land, which has led to the new dimension of the insecurities in the South-East. The recent spree of mindless and barbaric killings of innocent people in the South-East is alarming, totally condemnable and unacceptable. Hence, I made a plea, and I quote: "I therefore, strongly condemn in unmistaken terms, these dastardly acts in their entirety, and consequently, call on Security Agencies, and every Anambrabrian, to unite towards defending our land from these monsters desecrating it. These criminal elements, regardless of their ethnic affiliations, must be crushed. We must free our land from them. The hour is here! My heart indeed bleeds!" Please note that the victims of these mindless bloody assaults are not limited to a particular ethnic group, capable of warranting the present threats being dished out to the South-East. Also, there is the need to stress the trajectory of the perpetrators of these heinous crimes, which suggests that the culprits are not limited to people of a particular region (South-East). Other tribes like the Fulani herdsmen are equally on rampage in our region. It is critical at this juncture, that security Agents are allowed to carryout a thorough investigation into these barbaric acts. Hence, people should refrain from making pronouncements capable of heating up the already volatile polity that could ultimately promote the vice, which the ordinary intent of the pronouncement is set out to cure. As the Lead Counsel for the IPOB and on behalf of my client, I wish to reiterate that the IPOB leadership have never supported the nefarious activities of these enemies of our people, neither have they, in any of their publication approved such inhuman and barbaric activities of these criminals. The IPOB remains a lawful and peaceful movement. We therefore, call on every well meaning person to join hands in helping to fight and flush out insurgency in the South-East. Our deepest condolences goes out to the families of all those who have lost their loved ones as a result of these mayhem in the South-East. Please be assured that no stone will be left unturned, towards ensuring that the perpetrators of these heinous crimes are brought to book. Thank you all.

PUBLISHED BY: Offor Princewill A EDITED BY: Onuikpe Chikwas Killing Of Fatima and the kids by Federal Government Was To blackmail IPOB/ESN Nigerian Government agent's recent barbaric Killing of a woman identified as Fatima and her four kids to blackmail IPOB/ESN is evil and must be condemned by all sane minds, it is not right in any way shape or form, one will ask why is federal government agents committing such sacrilegious acts all in the name to make the name of IPOB look bad in the eyes of people and that of the international community? The answer is simply because they failed in their previous move to designate IPOB as a terror1st organization in the UK and other countries of the world. IPOB is well known as a nonviolence organization and recognized all over the world, IPOB and ESN have no hand in the recent barbaric Killing of Fatima and her four Kids because IPOB protects lives reason they created the Eastern Security Network (ESN) to protect the Old Eastern Region from the Fulan1 Terror1st, to fight kidnappers, Armed rubbers, Cultism, rapists and comb the region against the incessant killings of innocent people in the region, it is not possible for IPOB to be involved in such criminal activities they're fighting against. IPOB is a well-structured movement by Our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu that has been fighting for the liberation of Biafrans and other oppressed people all over the world, their main goal is total freedom and has nothing to do with violence or killings. Those attributing this barbaric act to IPOB must be ignorant of what IPOB is meant for and must understand that the Federal Government in collaboration with their black envelope Media outlets is behind this evil all in the name to blackmail IPOB and make the world a terrorist organization but will always fail. Federal Government and her agents must stop the killing of innocent people to tag it on IPOB, IPOB can never be involved in such a devilish act, the public must take note of this false narrative that IPOB is behind the killing because IPOB is meant to liberate her people as well give them total protection from murderers. The blood of millions of innocent people killed will continue to hunt Federal Government and its agents till they stop and grant the Biafran people the freedom we all are seeking for.
