Leader des peuples autochtones proscrits du Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu a critiqué les ambassadeurs de la Cour pénale internationale (CPI), des États-Unis, du Royaume-Uni et de l’Union européenne au Nigéria pour leur inaction dans le meurtre de riziculteurs à Borno. Il a également blâmé ces organisations pour le massacre présumé en cours à Oyigbo à Rivers.
Kanu, who spoke through the IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said the killings are still going on and nobody appears to be doing anything about it.
“It is now clear the international community no longer care about victims of state orchestrated mass murder like what obtained in the North and Obigbo in Rivers State.
“Appealing to the moral sense of responsibility of conscientious civilised nations no longer work, perhaps they want survivors of these brutal massacres all over Nigeria to go into armed resistance.”
He said while the much ‘respected’ Fulani terror franchise like Boko Haram, ISWAP and bandits are busy chopping off the heads of rice farmers in Borno, “the Nigerian Army only have power over unarmed citizens.”
He queried: “If all the outlandish concoctions and outright lies against IPOB used to justify Oyigbo massacre were true, why is Nigerian Army obstructing independent investigations?’’
