Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has warned the newly appointed Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Mrs Ngozi Onadeko, to resign her position or contend with the group.
This comes on the back of heightened tension in Oyo State where she is stationed.
Her first major task will be handling crisis between indigenes of Igangan Ibarapa North Local Government Area of the state, and alleged killer herdsmen.
Herdsmen had been alleged to have attacked farms, maimed and killed farmers in the area, forcing popular Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, to order their eviction from the state.
This order led to a directive by the Inspector-General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, to the police to arrest the freedom fighter.
Kanu, opining that this was a directive put in the hands of the Commissioner, who hails from the South-East, to drive a wedge between Igbos and Yorubas, warned Onadeko to resign or her family suffers consequences.
In a Facebook post, Kanu said she should ensure nothing happens to Igboho.
He said, “A warning to Mrs Ngozi Onadeko, the new Igbo Commissioner of Police, Oyo State Command. You are an Igbo woman, so I expect you to be reasonable enough to know that Fulani IGP posted you to Oyo to superintend the arrest or possible killing of Yoruba youths in order to foment enmity between the East and the West at this critical juncture in the history of the liberation of all indigenous peoples across Nigeria, including you and your family.
“I will advice you to resign honourably from your position as a certain Yoruba CP did in Abia State when he declined to order men under his command to open fire on IPOB protesters.
“I am warning you not to do anything likely to jeopardise the safety or well-being of Sunday Ighoho otherwise you and your family will have the might of IPOB to contend with. The silly game you people always play in that #Zoo will no longer wash with us.
“Suddenly Fulani have realised that appointing an Igbo woman as Police Commissioner is a good thing because they want to use you. Nothing should happen to Ighoho.”
