A pro – Biafran group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has accused President Muhammadu Buhari and the Department of State Service (DSS) of playing what they describe as a “hunger game in Biafraland,” by creating non-existent groups to show that IPOB has been split into factions.
In recent time two new pro-Biafra groups have emerged challenging the Nnamdi Kanu-led IPOB. A statement made available to journalists and signed by IPOB spokesmen, Mr. Emma Mmezu and Dr. Clifford Iroanya, noted that Buhari and his agents had failed in their machinations to divide the leadership of IPOB and jeopardise the quest for Biafra autonomy.
The statement stated: “President Muhammadu Buhari and agents of the Department of States Services (DSS) will make Suzanne Collins and Gary Ross go green with envy as they (Buhari and DSS) replicate “The Hunger Games“ in Biafraland by sponsoring hungry and jobless hirelings to pose as members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
“The latest session in Buhari’s “Hunger Games“ is the sponsoring of nondescript individuals and even using non-existent names to come up with acronyms that have “Biafra“ in them. “Within the last 24 hours Buhari has sponsored three different groups all claiming headship or ownership of IPOB. One of the groups even boasted that they have sacked the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
This is becoming comical and ludicrous. Buhari and DSS have descended so low that they now take advantage of jobless youths and engage them in “Hunger Games. “The incompetence of Buhari and his vindictive motive culminated in the ravaging hunger in the land and economic quagmire persisting in the British created criminality called Nigeria. From the time he committed treason on December 31, 1983 till date, Buhari has never had any personal development or intellectual improvement of any sort.
“Yet he wants to lead a quintessentially complex society like Nigeria especially in the 21st century where leadership and organisational agility is the key tool for comparative advantage. No wonder there is mass poverty pervading the land while Buhari is docile and engages in shadow-boxing and shadow-chasing.
“Because there is hunger in Nigeria and there is no shortage of hungry and jobless youths to do anything, Buhari requires them to do his bidding especially in experimenting in “Hunger Games“ in Biafraland.
In a country where a woman cannot cook a pot of soup without deploying a security guard, getting riffraffs to sign up to anything doesn’t require much effort. “That is why we have miscreants today claiming to have sacked the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.’’
The organisation stated that they had been reliably informed that the reason for this “one new IPOB fake group per day“ is to cause distraction from the natural public outcry and possible reprisal that will follow the Buhari/DSS planned slaughter of Biafrans in Enugu.
We have confirmed that the slaughter was meant to happen on Tuesday night (August 23, 2016 and because IPOB is a huge newsmaker people will be drawn away from the slaughter to focus on IPOB,” they further alleged.
“When the slaughter failed to materialise on the appointed day but rather happened on August 24, Buhari and DSS cooked up another split of IPOB to keep the gullible public entertained and it actually worked because people never discussed or reacted to the massacre but rather dwelt on the topical issue everywhere which was about IPOB split.”
