The secessionist group, Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) has threatened death and war in Nigerian in the wake of airstrikes by the Nigerian military in the South East.

Led by Nnamdi Kanu, close sources who spoke to on the condition of anonymity stated the secessionist group is currently preparing to strike members of the security forces currently based in the region.

The source disclosed that the pending attack will be supported by armed men who are currently based in neighbouring West African countries. The Biafra army is reported to extend as far as Israel.

The source said the attack is likely to happen in the next 40 days after a "spiritual exercise".

The Eastern Security Network (ESN) who recently shot down a military attack helicopter in Orlu is expected to join the attacks.

Meanwhile, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, the Founder of the Movement for The Actualization of a Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has accused Nnamdi Kanu of inciting ethnic cleansing in Igboland.

He also accused the group of insulting and denigrating eminent Igbo leaders and southeast governors in his bid to continue leading Igbo youths to their untimely deaths according to The Nations.

At a press conference in Owerri, the Imo state capital, Uwazuruike accused Kanu, whom he said he recruited “into the Biafran Independence struggle”, of brainwashing Igbo youths into taking arms against the federal government.

Describing Kanu as “a nobody”, Uwazuruike called on the southeast Governors to retrieve Eastern Security Network (ESN) from IPOB.
