Good day, Nigeria, welcome to Newspot roundup of Biafra/IPOB news headlines for today Thursday, June 10th, 2021.
Below is a roundup of top stories on Biafra, IPOB, ESN, Nnamdi Kanu and other pro-Biafra groups:
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has threatened with men of the Nigeria Police Force in the Southeast.
Kanu stated this while accusing the leader of the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team, DCP Abba Kyari of killing cultists and tagging them as members of the Eastern Security Network.
The IPOB leader further stated that the security outfit of IPOB are not cultists and would never be killed.
Kanu in a statement released through the spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful, said IPOB would not allow security agents to victimize the people Southeast.
Kanu accused Abba Kyari and his men of invading and burning down some communities in Imo State.
The police in Imo state have arrested a 40-year-old man, Uzoamaka Ugoanyanwu, said to be a infamous native doctor who allegedly prepares charms for members of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB and members of the Eastern Network Security, the security arm of the proscribed IPOB.
A statement released by Bala Elkana, spokesperson of the state police command, says on June 8, tactical teams of the command through diligent and painstaking investigations, stormed Ukwuorji, Mbaitoli Local Government area, along Onitsha road, and arrested a 65-year-old man, Ezeugo Ordu, a native of Ubachima, Omuma, Oru West LGA.
According to Bala, Ezeugo, during interrogation, confessed to being a member of IPOB/ESN and made useful statements to the police regarding the recent attacks on Police stations and the residence of Governor Hope Uzodinma. The police spokesperson said Ezeugo further led operatives of the command to the IPOB/ESN camp, a Bush close to Njaba River, where nine persons were arrested at the criminal hideout while planning another attack. He said assorted charms were recovered from them.
The Indigenous People of Biafra clamouring for secession has been described by President Muhammadu Buhari as a dot in a circle that has nowhere to go.
President Buhari stated this on Thursday during an interview with Arise TV.
He said, “That IPOB is just like a dot in a circle. Even if they want to exit, they will have no access to anywhere.”
“And the way they are spread all over the country, having businesses and properties, I don’t think IPOB knows what they are talking about.”
“In any case, we say we’ll talk to them in the language that they understand. We’ll organise the police and the military to pursue them.”
The Senior Pastor of Divine Mercy Church, Olatobiloba Peters, on Wednesday claimed that God revealed to him some things about the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, T B Joshua and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The cleric while revealing what he claimed God told him said the late televangelist who died last week Saturday is not in heaven.
Peters further stated that the powers of the late founder of SCOAN are not from God, hence the reason for him not to make heaven.
This is coming after the Senior Pastor of Christian Life Church, Jackson Senyonga described the late prophet as the “biggest witch in Africa.”
Pastor Peters while speaking said: “God showed me in a revelation of the night that Temitope Joshua did not make it to heaven. In that revelation, I saw that he could not make it because the powers he was using was not from God, this is what was revealed to me.”
