The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Sunday, condemned the attack on Ohaneze Ndigbo President General, Chief Nnia Nwodo’s house by those it called terrorists.
In a reaction to the incident, the group said it had no hand in it as being insinuated in some quarters, adding that those seeking to implicate it would end up implicating themselves.
In a statement issued by its Media and Publicity Secretary, IPOB said, “IPOB condemn the attack on Nnia Nwodo’ s compound by terrorists disguised as Fulani herdsmen.
“We are calling on south east, south south to prepare and be vigilant because the Fulani terrorist group have taking over our land.”
The statement further said, “The attention of the worldwide family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been drawn to a statement making the rounds on social media that Alimajiri Fulani terrorists masquerading as herdsmen intend to commence the bombing of police stations and government buildings to coincide with the visit of Buhari to the United States in the hope of implicating IPOB. This evil plot, if determined to be accurate, is intended to serve two purposes.
