The Biafra Zionists Federation (BZF) on Tuesday stated that the Minister for information, Lai Mohammed and the Chief of Army staff, Tukur Buratai will end up in prison over the deployment of troops to Abia state.
It can be recalled that the military exercise ‘Operation Python Dance II’ led to a violent confrontation between the members of the Indigenous people of Biafra(IPOB) and the Soldiers which resulted in deaths.
The leader of the group, Benjamin Onwuka said that all the people involved in the deployment of troops to Aba and Umuahia will pay a heavy price over the deaths.
He also attacked Fr. Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, who he said was sabotaging the Biafra project. Onwuka said;
“It is clearly a tragedy. It is clearly a military invasion; it has nothing to do with IPOB or Nnamdi Kanu. This is the North invading the East because of Biafra. I want to deeply condemn that act.
The attack on Biafran soil is an attack on all of us. The army is not supposed to interfere in the internal security situation of the nation; they are not supposed to get involved in domestic security of the country. So, sending the army to Aba and Umuahia was with an ulterior motive.
Using Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB to as a pretext to kill young men and women in in Abia and other parts of Igbo land, the North will have to pay for it. So, I condemn in totality the brutality of the army in the name f Operation Python Dance.
We, therefore, state clearly today that all those involved, the Chief of Defence Staff, the Chief of Army Staff and the Minister of information, will pay for these killings, They will all end up in ICC and then in prison.
Anyone involved in this military force against un-armed agitators will never go scot-free. We are not only going to take them to the ICC but prosecute the matter to the end until they are made to pay dearly for it. This time around, they will not escape justice. They did it in 1967-1970 and went away with it but it won’t happen this time. Britain and Saudi Arabia will not even save them.
For Lai Mohammed, can you see the lopsidedness in his argument? How can someone compare IPOB with herdsmen? These herdsmen have been killing people in their hundreds unhindered and that is why I insist that some Northern leaders are behind Boko Haram and herdsmen.
So, the statement from Lai Mohammed is rubbish and I am telling him today that he will face ICC over the killings in Abia.
We are as well calling on the Northern religious leaders, the Sultan of Sokoto and the Emir of Kano to call President Buhari and the Army Chiefs to order.
They should order them to withdraw these troops and rampaging herdsmen from Biafra land.”
Attacking Mbaka, he said; “it is regrettable that our Church leaders, notable ones, instead of supporting Biafra, they are busy using words that do not in any way reflect what is happening. Look at the killings in Abia, have they said anything.
Go to South-Africa, Desmond Tutu, an ArchBishop was in in the vanguard fighting for the liberation of the people, but here in Biafra, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka and ArchBishop Emmanuel Chukwuma, and several others are campaigning against the overall interest of the Biafran people.
They cannot be supporting our opponents openly here in Biafra land. If they don’t want to support Biafra, let them mind their business, let them face their duty of preaching the word of God, but involving themselves in attacking the people is very tragic.
The Zionists are are warning Ejike Mbaka that he is putting his adoration ministry on the line. All the clerics supporting these killings will be sent away from here by the Biafra government and we will take over that his adoration ground.
Attacking us and calling us names is unacceptable. People are being killed every day, has any of them come out to speak against it? We have marked Mbaka as an enemy of Biafra.”
