Ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari's visit to Enugu, Southeast Nigeria on Thursday, secessionist group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has berated the Nigerian leader over his roles in death of war victims during the Nigerian Civil War of 1967 and killing of innocent pro-Biafran protesters during his second stint as head of state beginning from May 2015.
Speaking via its spokesman, Emma Powerful, IPOB said in a statement on Monday:
"Muhammadu Buhari must stay clear of Biafra land or have himself to blame for the outcome of any such visit.
"The Indigenous People of Biafra have received information that Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) will be visiting Enugu on the 22nd of December, 2016. We object totally to this visit.
"We warn that any governor or Igbo politician that receives Buhari in Enugu will have himself or herself to blame. We make it public that should there be a breakdown of law and order in Enugu on the 22nd of December, greedy Igbo politicians will have themselves to blame.
"Any Igbo governor or politician that is found among those hobnobbing with Buhari becomes an enemy of the people and shall pay dearly for it.”
"We are calling on all Biafrans to descend on Enugu on the said date of December 22, 2016 to show our anger and displeasure at this attempt by some greedy Igbo men to insult the memory of our glorious dead and those still in detention with our leader."
