JUST IN: “IPOB has a 50,000 strong Paramilitary Force, Kills civilians” – Presidency

The Nigerian Presidency has raised alarm over the recent alliance between the Yoruba Nation agitators and the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

In a statement on Wednesday, signed by Presidential media aide, Garba Shehu, the presidency warned the Yoruba secessionist group to quit its association with IPOB adding that it was a terrorist organization that kills civilians and security agents.

The statement read in part; “IPOB is a designated terrorist organisation. It has now publicly revealed a 50,000 strong paramilitary organisation. It regularly murders security services and innocent civilians, with a significant uptick of violent attacks this year. And it is currently attempting to hold Nigerian states hostage with orders to stay at home under threat of terror.”

“Without doubt, Nigerians and the entire world will judge Yoruba Nation by the company it keeps.”

“No one can take seriously this organisation if it continues its IPOB association. When their allies systematically trample human rights, it raises sober questions about their claims to uphold the values of the UN. The cooperation is a worrying development, once parsed with Yoruba Nation’s increasingly violent rallies in Nigeria.”

“Actions and associations speak louder than words. Yoruba Nation’s talk of human rights promotion must therefore be ignored.”
