The Indigenous People of Biafra have said that the leader of the Fulani bandits captured in Benue state, Mohammed Isa, has been killed.
The group’s Media and Publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, told Edujandon.com on Thursday that the IPOB does not forgive terrorists.
Isa, who allegedly terrorized Igbo residents in Benue communities, was detained by the Eastern Security Network last weekend, the group’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, revealed.
“I want to congratulate the men and women of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) Northern Command for the successful capture of Mohammed Isa, the notorious leader of the Fulani bandits and assassins in Lower Benue,” Kanu said Monday.
In reaction, the chairman of the Ado Local Government Area in Benue State, James Oche, said that some people had been arrested in connection with the murder of an elderly man, Mohammed Isa.
Powerful, speaking on the question of what would be the fate of the arrested criminal, said: “We have already made it clear that we do not forgive the terrorists.”
“Mohammed Isa was captured by ESN’s Northern Command and handed over to God. We gave him to God so that he would know his ancestors.
“It is our resolve that any Fulani terrorist posing as herdsmen in our land if we catch him, we will send him to God Chukwu Okike Abiama for judgment.
“ESN has no power to judge terrorists. Only God has the power to do so, so He advises them to leave our lands, forests, and farmlands. “
In its comments on IPOB’s preparation to create a social media application for its members to replace Facebook, Powerful said: “When we finish, we will launch it.”
