The group’s comments were contained in a statement released to Vanguard.
“The statements by the so-called governors, who were elected to protect the lives and properties of the people, proves to the whole world that they are the sponsors of the new emerged terrorist group in disguise of Hausa Fulani herdsmen and cattle rearers.
“However, the massacre of our brothers and sisters by the Northern governors through their foot soldiers, Hausa-Fulani terrorist group in Biafra land, will not be in vain because Chukwu Okike Abiama (God Almighty) created us Biafrans.
“The Northern governors condemnation of the killing of our people in Agatu in Benue state, Uzo-Uwani, Enugu State and Delta State, after they had promoted those who committed the heinous crime, is hypocritical because it does not reflect the true character of people who respect the rule of law.
“We, IPOB worldwide in a strong terms call the governors in Biafra land to read meaning into the statements made by their counterparts in the North. This is because they have become nobody in the country their fathers fought vigorously for her independence.”
The northern governors have attracted criticism for condemning calls for the evacuation of Fulani herdsmen from the East despite the attacks carried out by the group in the area.
