Those behind this evil plot are currently pursuing its actualisation under the guise of repatriation of almajiris to their home states.“It is a known fact that Biafra has no almajiri as that is not our culture. Why then are those behind the sending of almajiri boys to Enugu doing so if not to infest Biafrans with covid -19 ? No almajiri is of Biafra origin. Why then are they being sent to Enugu? IPOB won’t accept despatching of almajiri boy to Enugu or any part of Biafra land.“Arewa North dominated by Fulani have been secretly sending Coronavirus patients in the name of sending out their alamajiri group to Enugu state since the lockdown started. Some of those almajiri sent to Enugu State but intercepted by security agents were tested and found positive of COVID-19 pandemic . Dispatching alamajiri to our land under any guise will not be accepted. We shall stoutly resist this move.“It is no longer hidden that coronavirus pandemic (COVID19) is currently ravaging Kano and other parts of the North. Instead of locking down to stem the spread as was done by all states in Biafra land, Northern leaders opened their borders and allowed free movement of their people many of who are now infested with the pandemic . Now they intend to infest the rest of us with the virus under the guise of repatriation of almajiris. We won’t allow this evil plot as no almajiri is from Biafra Land.“We, therefore, urge everybody in Biafra land including politicians, businessmen and women as well as students, churches and all the stakeholders in our land to stand up and stop these evil people with their alamajiri group transfered in Biafra. Our land cannot be a depot for alamajiri. Let them stay in North where they were incubated. Everybody knows that alamajiris are wanderers causing uprising, mayhem and crises in the whole of North. Most of the attacks against Christians and Biafrans living in the North as well as Christian communities in the North have their signature tunes.“We also want all Biafrans to be on the red alert because the North has deviced another means of spreading this deadly disease in our land via almajiris. They used Fulani terrorists as herdsmen, Nigeria military, police and Boko Haram attack before and failed because Biafraland is a blessed land and protected by Most High God Chukwu Okike Abiama in Heaven who is protecting and overseeing the affairs of our lives towards this deadly pandemic disease.The North knows that South East and South South don’t have alamajiri or wayward people since our lives. Therefore, they must immediately recall them before it gets too late because IPOB will not accept that nonesence transfer of human beings affected with diseases to our territory. We are not unaware about the new plans which was perfected in the north to kill Biafrans, before sending these alamajiri to Enugu we were reliabily informed that Fulani would start another approach to reduce Biafra populations therefore, we’ll never accept that rubbish brought here called alamajiri.“Former President Goodluck Jonathan did all he could to stop and eradicate alamajiri system spread in the north during his administration. He even built schools and gave them good incentives but those who created and benefited from alamajiri institution refused and destroyed all the alamajiri schools built by Jonathan and they even accused him of destroying Northern Nigeria”.End.
