ISLAMIC COUNCIL GIVES NNAMDI AND IPOB MEMBERS LAST WARNING ON ATTACKS ON HAUSA’S AND MUSLIMS

The Rivers State Council of Islamic Affairs has warned the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, that it would resist any attempt on its members in Rivers State.

The council issued the warning why alleging that IPOB members are planning to attack the Hausa community in the state.

Deputy President of the council, Nasir Uhor, issued the warning while addressing journalists in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

The group said: “We want to say categorically that enough is enough, no ethnic group has a monopoly of violence.

“Violence is not rocket science, Muslims have always been targets of the agitations of IPOB. We concede to the right of all citizens to peaceful gatherings to press home their demands.

“We will not accept the continuous attacks on our people because they are Muslims or from the North; not every Muslim is from the North and not all from the north are Muslims. We will regard further attacks as ethnic cleansing.”

This is coming at a time when some members of IPOB allegedly clashed with some Hausas in Oyigbo local government area of the state.
