NNAMDI Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has criticized Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State over the killing of his members in Obigbo, Rivers State. He said everybody that has a hand in the ongoing killings in Obigbo must know that vengeance “is coming and that it is not a matter of if but when”.
In a statement signed by Emma Powerful, media and publicity secretary, IPOB, Kanu said apologists of Wike and the Nigerian army should remember what happened at Obigbo when vengeance comes. “Those newspapers, professional gossipers, so-called civil society and human rights groups that have sought to pretend they are not aware of what is happening or have deliberately and satanically twisted the narrative to suit the demands of their paymasters in Abuja, will continue to wrestle with their conscience. All the media houses that have so far failed to call out Wike for the brutal pogrom that is happening in Obigbo must know they too will not be forgotten.
“There were riots and disturbances all over Nigeria. Nigerian army and police have killed and continue to kill hundreds of young people and in retaliation young people attacked police stations. To single out the inhabitants of Obigbo for extermination is a vicious and evil undertaking and a calculated attempt by Wike to please the federal government and Britain that tried, but failed to exterminate the Igbo race between 1966 and 1970. Obigbo will not die, it shall rise again because the blood of the innocent is crying out for revenge.
“The 1966 alliance of the axis of evil is once again at play. History has taught us not to forget, we will not forget. Vengeance is coming and with it the judgment of God. Those children in Obigbo murdered by Wike have nephews and cousins, who are so embittered to the point that they can no longer be controlled. I feel sorry for Wike, his children, and all collaborators in this brutal genocide. Those asking us to retaliate today should bear in mind that the timing and place of what is to come is our choosing.
“As Nigeria has not mourned those being put to the sword by Wike and the Nigerian army in Obigbo, they must remember not to mourn Wike and his allies when the table inevitably turns. Twist the narrative all you like, nobody can stop the hand of time. When the rain begins to fall, remember I warned you. I will not write neither will I comment on this issue again.
