Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has challenged the International Criminal Court (ICC), United States, United Kingdom and European Union ambassadors to Nigeria over their inaction in the killing of rice farmers in Borno state. He also laid the alleged ongoing massacre in Oyigbo in Rivers State at the feet of these ambassadors and ICC.
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 Oyigbo 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 warned. 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?’’
