The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has alleged that some pro-Buhari protesters would share N300 million to march along the streets of Anambra State.
The IPOB said the group would embark on the protest march on Friday.
IPOB, in a statement signed by its spokesperson Powerful Emma says: “In the course of our investigations, we have discovered the shocking fact that certain immoral Buhari agents in Anambra state supposedly announced the availability of the sum of Three Hundred Million Naira (300,000,000.00) to be shared amongst those foolish enough to attend the proposed rally.”
Emma also alleged that Governor Willie Obiano has offered to contribute N200 million to support the rally.
He said the Obiano alongside some politicians under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who have planned to rally will face its consequences.
“It smacks of crass insensitivity that certain Igbo speaking people in desperate need of money to feed their children at these austere times, would go as far as planning to shamelessly hold a rally in support of this Buhari administration that has killed and abducted over 1000 Biafran men and women.
“Does it mean these individuals are not aware of the recently released reports by Amnesty International, INTERSOCIETY, Human Rights Watch and Civil Liberties Organisation (CLO), the militarisation of Igbo speaking parts of Biafraland or the illegal detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of IPOB.
“We would like to warn those behind this show of shame to retrace their steps or face the consequences of their greedy actions,” Emma said.
Emma added: “Whoever came up with this idea of holding a rally in Anambra State in support of Buhari who has not hidden his hatred and genocidal intent towards Biafrans in general and Igbos in particular, must have his brain examined.”
That a few persons, perhaps out of financial desperation considering the extreme hunger in the land, dreamt of rallying to support an unrepentant mass murderer like Buhari, shows the level of moral decay at the heart of leadership in Anambra State and Igboland in general,” he said.
The IPOB said it has also consulted traders, market women, churches, clergy, students union, transporters and all its members in Anambra state to be at alert.
Emma also cautioned members of the IPOB not to participate in the rally he said is being organized with, “blood money against our dead heroes and the restoration of Biafra.”
“IPOB will use all available means to stop this show of shame and crass insensitivity to our brave heroes and heroines killed by Buhari,” Emma said.
We would hold Ngige and Obiano responsible should people assemble to show any form of support for the mass murderer Buhari. The consequences of such an action will be incalculable and on the heads of the organizers will it squarely lie,” he added.
