The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned the South-East Governors against the plan of setting up another security outfit in the geopolitical zone.
According to a statement by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the region would not have two security outfits, one from IPOB and the other from the governors, at a time.
He said that the there is already a security outfit for the region and they cannot allow any other to spring up.
The group specifically warned Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, who is Chairman of South-East governors, to perish the idea.
The proscribed group accused the governors of trying to set up the outfit on the advice of ‘Fulani-controlled Federal Government of Nigeria”’
The statement read in part, “We know that their intention is to counter the formidable Eastern Security Network, protecting and defending Biafrans against terrorists and invaders responsible for the senseless attacks, raping and wanton killings of our mothers, wives and sisters in our farmlands and forests.
“We warn these clueless governors in our region not to heed the mischievous advice and attempt by Miyetti Allah and Sokoto caliphate intended to compromise the security of Biafrans.
“Any Miyetti Allah vigilante group under any nomenclature formed by Dave Umahi and his fellow governors as well as Ohanaeze will be resisted by the people of old Eastern region.
“We, therefore, advise every Biafran father and mother to caution their children against joining Umahi’s vigilante group as such an outfit is already the enemy of the people. Their agenda is sinister and anti- Biafra.
“Anyone who enlists in any treacherous security outfit sponsored by stooges in our land to desteblize our territory, will regret such a decision.
“Our message is simply this: IPOB will not allow terrorists any breeding ground on Biafra forests and farmlands. The raping, killings and unprovoked attacks by these vampires must stop throughout Biafra territory.
“Anyone against this irreversible resolve of the people to defend themselves against foreign occupation will be crushed.”
