Biafra: BNYL indicts IPOB for murder of Pro-Biafra Prophet Nwoko, threatens war
…Warns IPOB on attack of members
ENUGU— The Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL, has indicted the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, for murder of popular Pro-Biafra Prophet, Anthony Nwoko.
The League narrated that Prophet Nwoko who strongly opposed the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, had earlier raised alarm over death threats to his life by the group.
The Biafra secessionist organization threatened total war to protect their members and pursue their agitation for the sovereign state of Biafra.
The organization in a statement on Wednesday, declared that they are at loggerheads over the murder of their strong supporter, Prophet Anthony Nwoko by bandits in Ugbene 2, Nike area of Enugu state.
Nationwide Leader of BNYL, Comrade Princewill C Richard, was gathered to have said in a video broadcast on BBS TV online channel that he carried out an investigation on the killing of Nwoko and discovered that the killers are not outsiders but within the Biafra community.
He said that findings show that the Enugu State IPOB Chief Security Officer is directly involved in the killing, alleging that he masterminded the killing. Comrade Richard said that the Biafra Youth League is already on the hunt of the said Chief Security and his gangs.
Defiant BNYL’s leader accused the IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu and his deputy, Uche Mefor, of arrogance and disrespect to the Biafran agitators, a behavior, he said, his followers are sheepishly following.
Richard, however, noted that it is not clear whether the IPOB leader ordered the murder of Anthony Nwoko until the killers are caught and made to confess.
BNYL decried that similar incidence occurred in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, where one of their colleague named Cosmos George Oto’obong and an Abia State lady were invited to a peace meeting by IPOB which they went and were rounded up, tortured and left half dead in the bush.
He wondered that the IPOB lions could not do anything to stop the Fulani herdsmen killing in the southeast but could turn their barrels on their people.
Princewill Richard warned of a possible rival activities between his group and IPOB if death threats to individuals with different opinions and the assassinations continues.
