Stockpiling weapons: We don’t buy arms, we produce arms locally – IPOB replies Presidency
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has reacted to the allegation of stockpiling arms by the Federal Government.
The National Publicity Secretary of the separatist group, Emma Powerful said IPOB produces its arms locally in the country.
Powerful stated this while denying the allegation of stockpiling arms and bombs by the Presidency.
In a chat, Powerful said: “We are not stockpiling any arms anywhere.
“Fulani government of Nigeria can rant and propagate falsehood against IPOB, we don’t buy arms we produce arms we are going to use locally and we made it clear to them that 1967 and 1970 are not the same thing with 2021.
“Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu prophesied that they will kill us and we’ll kill them at the end Biafra nation will come.
“There is no false information and state-sponsored propaganda that can stop or change our resolve to restore Biafra freedom from Nigeria. What they did to our fathers, this present generation of Biafra will surprise them heavily.”
Recall that Garba Shehu, spokesperson to President Muhammadu Buhari, had accused IPOB of stockpiling arms and bombs.
Shehu had made the comments following Twitter’s decision to delete Buhari’s offensive tweet.
“IPOB is proscribed under Nigerian law. Its members murder innocent Nigerians. They kill policemen and set government property on fire. Now, they have amassed a substantial stockpile of weapons and bombs across the country.
“Twitter does not seem to appreciate the national trauma of our country’s civil war. This government shall not allow a recurrence of that tragedy,” he said.
