The Indigenous People of Biafra( IPOB) has said it will commence cleansing of Biafraland in preparation to launch the Biafra nation.
As a consequence, it has asked criminal elements to leave the area or risk arrest and prosecution.
The secessionists stated this on Tuesday in a press release circulated by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful.
Assuring that the Biafra sovereignty was near, the pro-Biafra agitators said in the new nation there would be no more sorrow occasioned by crime and criminality.
It said, “We the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership and command of our indefatigable Liberator Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu wish to state unequivocally and to all and sundry in Biafraland that IPOB will soon commence arrest and prosecution of the destructive elements in our society.
“This new initiative of IPOB is to prepare descent and responsive citizenry in preparation for the birth of a new nation of Biafra where law and order will be a norm. The new nation of Biafra will soon emerged and nobody born of a woman can change or stop its coming.
“We are alerting every body in Biafra Land that IPOB will soon commence arrest of defaulters and criminals and will detain and prosecute bad elements especially those criminals terrorizing, kidnapping for ransom and those snatching our people’s cars and those selling our lands to Fulani Nigeria Federal Government for RUGA.
“Very soon IPOB leadership will announce this new initiative and other terms and conditions that will follow. We warn anyone behind the criminalities going-on in the Eastern Region to stay off. Even those in diaspora if you commit we will arrest you if found guilty or you may not come back home again; don’t play with this order because there is no country in the world that doesn’t arrest or judge their citizens and Biafra won’t be exception.
Therefore, everyone should mind what they do in the Biafra territory or outside Biafra from going forward. The game has changed and we will be doing what is needful as we wait for the final whistle to be blown.
“Let it be known to all persons residents in Biafra land (Biafrans and non-Biafrans) that this information is for you. Even if you’re a Zoo Security Officer, if you commit any crime in our land we will arrest and prosecute you in line with IPOB judicial system. Therefore, be mindful of your actions because nothing will stop us not to arrest you if you commit any crime.Do not say you were not warned.”
