IPOB clamours for elimination of military checkpoints in South-East

Due to the activities of officers of the Nigerian Army in the Southeast, members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has expressed rage over the killing of a commercial motorcycle operator by a happy-trigger soldier in Aba.

This was reported to be due to his alleged refusal to pay N100 daily illegal toll at Ohanze, in Obingwa LGA of Abia State.

This event may have informed the decision of the group to call for the immediate dismantling of multiple military checkpoints across South-East saying the zone is being treated as a conquered territory.

In a press release signed by the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB claimed that Ndigbo were being punished by the Northern-dominated army for opposing the controversial Ruga settlement.

“The unprovoked attack and unnecessary killing of Biafrans by Fulani dominated Nigerian Army throughout Biafranland has taken another gruesome dimension since the emphatic rejection of Fulani Ruga settlements and National Life Stock Programmes (NLSP) by Biafrans.”

According to IPOB, the most annoying thing about the dastardly act was that the killer-soldier followed the victim to his house and shot him in front of his wife and other family members as if he killed a wild animal.

“That a Nigerian Army chased a young man into his village and shot him dead in his compound in front of his wife and family is wickedness taken too far.”
