The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said that he set up the Biafra Secret Service so as to provide security for Igbo people.
Kanu, who spoke yesterday shortly after his visit to Senator Enyinna Abaribe, claimed the federal government had failed to protect the people.
He said Fulani herdsmen were killing Igbo people while the police failed to address the issue.
He said: “I will not do anything that will bring dishonour to my people. There is no reason for people to be afraid of the internal operation of IPOB.
“We want to stop the menace of Fulani herdsmen in our land. In the north, they have the Hisbah police, they have the Sharia police. They even have the Janjaweed police. Here, we have nothing.
“We need to protect this very land. We want to protect the Fulani men from rustling.
“The police have done nothing. Fulani herdsmen are operating everywhere.
“President Buhari spoke; he never mentioned the menace of Fulani herdsmen. His interest was Biafra agitation. It doesn’t work for me. I am a Biafran.”
Senator Abaribe also spoke saying: “IPOB has assured that they will continue to remain nonviolent.”
He added that discussions about a better union for Nigeria were necessary so that some people will not continue to feel like second class citizens.
He called on Nigerians to continue to work for peace and senate the South Est senate caucus will meet again for ongoing discussions.
