” Fulani terrorists and … beheaded their Biafran victims in their trademark Jihadi style.
“They also destroyed Bethel Methodist Church at Umuoguduakpu”, Kanu alleged.
The IPOB Leader tongue-lashed South East Governors whom he accused of cowardice and docility.
“Those that look up to governors across the East for protection can now see for themselves that Fulani caliphate is the ones in charge.”
Kanu also accused the media especially some major national and international platforms of maintaining “criminal silence “
” BBC, CNN, … have maintained their criminal silence over this abominable atrocity. I am certain that when the time comes they will report IPOB response with glee.”

Renewed attacks by Fulani terrorists including herdsmen, Boko Haram, ISWAP and bandicts against Christians communities have intensified in the recent months.
The urgy of attacks which had hitherto concentrated in the North and Middle Belt regions is fast spreading into Christian -dominated Southern states .
There are expectations that the disturbing situation which obviously has overwhelmed security agencies could lead to international intervention to protect the hapless victims.Steve Oko, Publisher/C.E.O, WaWa News Global.
