Nnamdi Kanu , Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has expained why he set up the Biafra Secret Service saying it was to protect the people of Biafra.
Kanu, who spoke to journalists after a visit to the chairman, South East senate caucus, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, at his country home, Ohuru, in Obingwa council area of Abia State, explained that there was no need for anybody to be afraid of the internal operations of IPOB saying the group will never engage in violence or armed struggle.
According to him, ‘there is no need foranybody to be afraid of the internal operations of IPOB. Biafra Secret Service is like the vigilante outfits you have everywhere. It is not armed. We want to stop the menace of Fulani herdsmen in our land.
We won’t tolerate it, it won’t happen here. In the North, you have the Hisbah Police, Sharia police ; you even have the Janjaweed police . Here, we have nothing; we need to protect this land.
We need to prevent the Fulani cattle men from rustling; we are opposed to every form of disorder and criminality. IPOB will never be violent, we will never be armed’. He continued to say, ‘so, there is no need for people to be afraid of the internal operations of IPOB because we will never resort to armed violence or armed struggle of any sort .
Our method is far more potent and effective than any armed struggle’.
