Killers Of Two Hausa Settlers In Rivers State Not IPOB ― Police by Bikoko: 4:36am On Sep 08
POLICE in Rivers state have said the irate youths who killed two Hausa settlers in Oyigbo town, Oyigbo Local Government Area, were not members of Indigenous People of Biafran (IPOB) as suspected by eyewitnesses.

A spokesman for Northern Community in Rivers, Alhaji Musa Saidu, had alleged that two traders were killed and two others wounded when irate youths suspected to be members of (IPOB) attacked Hausa settlement in the area.

According to him, “The suspected IPOB members armed with dangerous weapons attacked an area populated by Hausa indigenes on Saturday and again on Sunday, killing two petty traders while two persons sustained serious injuries.”

He said the attackers never declared the motive for the attacks, however, but contended that it might not be unconnected with previous threats issued to Hausa community in Rivers by suspected IPOB members, urging Police to fish out the killers.

Police Public Relations Officer, Rivers Command, SP Nnamdi Omoni, who confirmed the development, however, discountenanced the pointer to IPOB as being responsible for the attacks.

Omoni said” We are very much aware of that incident. The only difference with the storyline we have is the labelling of the group as IPOB. That is what we are not in terms with.

“Investigation has been ordered in a bid to unravel identities of those that carried out the act. So for now labelling them IPOB is out of place. In the first place, there is nothing like IPOB.

“IPOB has been proscribed so nobody can operate under the guise of IPOB. IPOB in law is non-existent. What we are saying is that it has no legal backing.”

We Ndigbo keep winning the media war back to back. They tried to use IPOB to blackmail Igbos before Hausas, so that the disaffection of the Middle belters with the Fulanis will be dissipated and the Hausa aggression turned against the Igbos. But unfortunately what they don't know is that in this era of internet and social media, it is near impossible to gain information dominance over Ndigbo.

We must step up our games Ndigbo, and try to retaliate against daily trust for this fake news. We should find a way to demarket that newspaper such that it will never gain any form of relevance or acceptablity. And this is not only for daily trust, but also any newspaper that writes things which are not true about us. Even though I have come to observe that must newspapers try not to write negative things about us, except Vanguard newspaper and they do so because they already know that they are our own, but others (newspapers) are in morbid fear of our reprisals. So we must be ready to silence every negative and dissenting news published against our peace loving and hardworking tribe.

Furthermore, We must learn never to shy away from any challenge, because if we do, the challenge multiplies and becomes even more potent. So it's always good to meet challenges head on. In the end, we should all strive to make sure that we continue to win this age of information dissemination, because best believeve that any one who wins the cyber war will actually be the overall winner. Everything in this world now has gone cyber and therefore, we need to be up to the task. So Stop siting idly infront of your computer, if you don't know what to do, use those idle times to mount resistance against those negative press written about your tribe and if possible launch an offensive against the tribes of any author that comes against your people.

I repeat, we must never lose this information war!

After making some contacts and investigation immediately after the the blatant killing of my comrades recently in Emene- Enugu State, we discovered that the fulani terrorist government used that attack to test how many ethnic groups are very willing to be their tool should an heavy armed insurrection begin. The team of vampires they sent on that ignoble mission were comprised of different ethnic groups and the result they got though was promising but inconclusive. The question was; how comfortable will a non-fulani be to attack a peaceful group of young men holding their meeting in a neighborhood where there's no rancour? How much of a willing tool will non fulanis in the so called Nigerian security outfits be to kill a peaceful group of young IPOB men?Boko Haram terrorists have been killing other ethnic groups in the Nigerian Army for all these years yet the captured ones are released back as 'repentant terrorists'. Fulani terrorist militias aka fulani herdsmen have killed to thousands of people from ALL regions of Nigeria without even one of them prosecuted talk more of being killed yet some blind losers will still be willing to attack a non violent group of people exercising their fundamental human right. It shows the level dumbness of these set of willing tools. While the fulanis have elevated their people planting them in all juicy positions all over the Nigerian contraption, the dirty work is left for the cannon fodders aka willing tools in the Nigerian security departments to do. While their children are schooling abroad getting quality education, that of these willing tools are squeezing it in the Nigerian public schools because they can't even afford to send them to the private schools in Nigeria. When will your eyes open to see what your real problem is?

How much coordinated would you want IPOB to be? . An organisation that has spread in over 100 countries of the world and has consistently organised peaceful rallies and demonstrations both locally and internationally .

Just say enemies of IPOB are trying to give them a bad name in order to hang them or justify terrorist tag period . We know the game .

This is a fake News and media cover up!

We have gotten every information we need to know about the killing of our people in Rivers state by ipob members.

The fact that Hausas were killed and vanguard refused to publish it only to publish about the denial of the killings tells everything about the hypocrisy of vanguard.

The facts that Hausa Muslims are being butchered in Rivers state and there’s no media outrage tells you everything you need to know about the hypocrisy in this country.

Thank God that our people are gradually dominating social media.

Gone are days when a northerner will be murdered in the East and nobody will know about it.

Now we also have a voice...any single single Hausa killed in the East must never be overlooked.

We value our own people just the way you value your own brothers.

If we can collectively Condemn the killing of Nigerians by South Africans then why can't we collectively condemn the killing of Hausa traders by ipobs?

We have heard that several arrest has been made... We don't care about any Arrest.
Arresting them is just for media cover up. They will soon be released.

They should just release them... We will get justice for our people.

So the police men that killed ipob members are all Fulanis right? See what Nnamdi kanu has done to your brain.

Just take good look at the long crap you just post here and you think you're making sense.

Every killings in the south east is now attributed to fulani herdsmen. Even when your brothers are being caught on daily basis killing and raping women.

Why do you hate the Fulanis so much?? Is that the reason you people are killing Hausa settlers in your region??

Look at you writing long crap to justify the killing of innocent Hausa settlers.

This is a traditional ruler in imo state that was arrested together with his hit squad.

All their atrocities were blamed on fulani herdsmen

why are you bringing middlebelt into this??

You think by naming them middle rope abi na belt will make them stand by you or what??

I know by the mention of middle belt the next thing that comes to the mind of an average ipob is Christianity.

North Central which you people call middle belt is 80% muslim region.

Nasarawa is 70% Islam with a Muslim governor.

Niger is 80 is Islam with a Muslim governor.

Kwara is 70% Islam with a Muslims governor

Kogi is 60% Islam with a Muslim governor.

Jos is 50_50 with a Christian governor.

The only full Christian state in the north central is Benue state which is 90% Christianity.

So north central is a no go area for ipob extremists.

“Investigation has been ordered in a bid to unravel identities of those that carried out the act. So for now labelling them IPOB is out of place. In the first place, there is nothing like IPOB.

“IPOB has been proscribed so nobody can operate under the guise of IPOB. IPOB in law is non-existent. What we are saying is that it has no legal backing.”

The facts in the report are clear.

1. Innocent, unarmed Nigerians were attacked in the East and killed by armed youths.

2. The only reason that they offered to vindicate IPOB isn't that the killers were not IPOB members or that the Eastern killings didn't happen as initially reported, but that IPOB has been proscribed.

3. However we all know IPOB have been active and holding meetings in the East, one of which degenerated into a deadly clash wherein security agents and some IPOB members were killed. In the aftermath of the killings, many Easterners rejected the proscription and asserted the "right" of IPOB members to gather despite their proscription, which makes this vindication on the basis of their proscription very questionable.

With this re-emphasis on their proscribed status, it is therefore expected that all security forces do everything possible to destroy completely, any remnants of the proscribed terrorist organisation to prevent any future killings of Nigerians in that region. Thankfully, the case is still under investigation and I trust our respected Police Force and other security agencies to deliver.

Semantics!
Then who did it?
Let's loook at it this way.
There's known animosity, the Hausa leader said they had had treats from ipob, shit happens for real and people think the Hausa people do not know who constitutes ipob.
The police has said legally there's no ipob. Which is just like saying fetish and rituals are not legal but hell these are real as we witness day by day.

It's online, in rumours, gossips, meetings and available,threats and counter threats from all quarters with baying for blood for chance for vengeance or further massacre as it may be.

Sensitive yes!

This has got to be the crappiest thing I've read in a looong time. So the Nnamdi PRO guy is saying it cant be ipob simply because ipob has been prescribed and therefore does not exist according to the law. I guess those who protested couple of days go in Enugu over the clash between the group and dss, a clash that resulted in the death of people on both sides, were not ipob because, *according to the law, ipob does not exist*.

That PRO guy is a very funny dude. I guess the chairman of the local government also lied according to him. Smh.
