IPOB tackles Sheikh Gumi, says we’re against terrorists, not northerners

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has rubbished Sheikh Abubakar Gumi’s comment that it hates and kills northerners, describing it as ranting and ridiculous claims by a terrorist apologist.

However, the pro-Biafra group in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, stated the group’s target terrorist elements, not northerners,

“The attention of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra has been drawn to the latest ranting and ridiculous claims by terrorist apologist, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi, that IPOB and Eastern Security Network were killing northerners,” the statement said.

“ESN is a child of necessity created for the defence of our ancestral land against terrorists and killer herdsmen wreaking havoc across our communities. ESN is only defending our hapless mothers and sisters who have been raped, maimed and attacked without any justification by Fulani herdsmen.

“No northerner in any part of Biafra land can prove that he/she has at any time been attacked by IPOB or ESN. We are only chasing terrorists and bandits behind killings and kidnapping for ransom in our land.”
