The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra has raised the alarm over possible attacks on Christians and non-Muslims in Biafra land by killer-herdsmen and bandits.
According to the group, the plot is to replicate the ugly incident of Owo, in Ondo State, where over 32 Christians were massacred, inside a church.
The pro-Biafra body claimed it got intelligence from its “M-Branch” that bandits were targeting churches, Christians, and their locations for imminent attacks, adding that Biafrans must be on the alert to avert the danger ahead.
IPOB in the statement, said, “We, the global family of Indigenous People of Biafra, ably led by our prophet and indefatigable liberator, Mazi Kanu, deemed it necessary to once again alert the Christians and the general public that Fulani people have devised another means of attack against Christians, churches, and non-Muslims in Biafraland.
“The information contained in the intel received from our intelligence unit, “the M.Branch,” says the Nigerian government is transferring bandits and terrorists as ostensible Christians into the eastern region of Nigeria in readiness to replicate similar or deadlier terrorist act that was unleashed in Owo Catholic Church, Ondo State.
“We advise Christians and other religious leaders to sit up, be at alert and be security conscious as strange seeming worshippers of non-Igbo ethnicity would infiltrate their midst to commit havoc.
“They must be on the lookout for Fulani-looking persons that may come to join them in pretence as converted Christians. Do not also be deceived into thinking that Fulanis don’t speak Igbo, dress like Igbo, and behave like indigenes, because, they do. So many of them were born and brought up in Igbo-land and they know, not just all nooks and crannies of the Igbo land, they also understand all events and their seasons.
