The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), says the agitators of Biafra and Oduduwa republics have joined resources to forge a united front for their fight against Fulani herdsmen and other criminal elements.
IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, speaking on behalf of the joint group, disclosed that they are training their personnel together to improve their skills and secure Southern Nigeria.
In a statement on Monday, the spokesman stated that an attack on one of the secessionist group would be seen as an attack on the other.
The statement read: “This is to put the Nigerian Government and her security agencies in Nigeria on notice that Biafra and Oduduwa have further strengthened their bond as one people, following the joint training of personnel from both sides.
“These joint volunteer force will secure the territories of Southern Nigeria against ‘foreign Fulani terrorists and any unwarranted aggression from any external force’.
“Oduduwa and Biafra Volunteer Force demand an immediate end to the ongoing genocide against the people of Biafra and immediate demilitarisation of Biafraland as we are now ready to defend our territories against aggression. The killing and abduction in Biafra and Oduduwa land must stop immediately.
“We reiterate that an attack on Oduduwa land is an attack on Biafra and an attack on Biafra is an attack on Oduduwa. This is the bond the Fulanis tried for many years to destroy but today, the new generation of Oduduwa and Biafra have risen to say no to divide and rule. We are on the threshold of history because we are stronger together.
“Today we have trained together, dined together, and drunk together. Should duty call for it, we shall die together in defense of the entire South. We shall defend our land together, this is historic day for both nations.”
