The Leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), yesterday accused the President Muhammadu Buhari administration of operating an apartheid system of justice administration in Nigeria.
IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, in a statement released yesterday said that under the Buhari administration presently, there are two set of laws in operation, one for the Fulani people and the other for the rest of the people of Nigeria.
IPOB while condemning the arrest of the Divisional Police Officer in-charge of Gboko police station at the wake of the reported killing of seven Fulanis in Benue state chided the Federal Government to have remained docile when many other citizens of Benue state from other ethnic groups were murdered in cold blood.
The statement reads thus: “It did not come to the leadership and family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide as a surprise that the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Gboko police station in Benue State has been arrested for failure to use police resources to protect invading Fulani herdsmen. This perverse logic can only obtain in Nigeria where reason and common sense is always in short supply. We condemn the criminal silence of the weak majority and those that claim they are leaders of the various socio-cultural organisations that litter the political landscape in Nigeria.
