The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has cautioned against allowing the enthronement of the Fulani emirate in Imo and Abia states.
IPOB vowed to resist any Igbo politician or political party that attempts to enthrone the Fulani emirate in the Southeast.
A statement by Emma Powerful, the spokesman of IPOB, said: “We, the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra under the leadership and command of Nnamdi Kanu, warn against any plans to enthrone the Fulani Emirate in the Southeast, especially in Imo and Abia States.
“Any Igbo politician and party that has reached any agreement to enthrone Fulani Emirate in any Christian community in Biafraland will be resisted with everything we have.”
The separatist group applauded Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State for preventing “Fulani stooges” from establishing a Fulani Emirate.
“We commended the proactive approach used by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to stop the nonsensical move by Fulani stooges to introduce Fulani Emirate in Abia State.
“If that agenda had not been nipped in the bud, the caliphate, in collusion with some useless idiots in the East, would have established a Fulani Emirate in Aba, Abia State.”
IPOB urged the people of Imo State to be vigilant and know that Governor Hope Uzodinma is planning to create a Fulani Emirate in the state.
The group stressed that Uzodinma's planned move was responsible for the insecurity in Orlu and Oru axis.
