Orji Kalu caused Lokpanta crisis by ceding area to Fulani terrorists – IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has accused the Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu of creating the current insecurity crisis in Lokpanta area of Abia State.

IPOB alleged that Kalu ceded Lokpanta to Fulani terrorists when he was the governor of Abia State due to his presidential ambition.

Emma Powerful, the spokesman of IPOB, said Kalu ceded the area to Fulani terrorists under the guise of RUGA programme.

The statement by Powerful, however, said IPOB would recover Lokpanta from those Kalu ceded the area to soon.

According to Powerful: “We the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the indefatigable liberator Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu wish to tell Ndigbo that Orji Uzor Kalu created the current insecurity crisis along Lokpanta during his term in government in Abia State.

“Kalu, out of desperation to become President of Nigeria, allocated Lokpanta to Fulani terrorists masquerading as herdsmen for RUGA. In the end, Fulanis deceived him, took over the area, and refused to give him the presidential ticket. Instead of a presidential ticket, they rewarded him with imprisonment. They freed him from prison to continue working for the Fulanization agenda in Abia State.

“Today, Orji Uzor Kalu is flippantly talking to the public with different stories about Lokpanta. Orji Uzor Kalu ridiculed himself by saying that he gave Lokpanta to Fulanis for revenue generation. Abians should ask him to show them how much revenue Abia State has generated from Lokpanta.

“This gullible man forgot that Fulanis don’t coexist with other ethnic groups. Conquest, rule and enslavement are in their DNA.

“Today, Lokpanta is a security risk not only to Abians but to anyone plying that route where many have fallen victim to Fulani kidnapping and killing.”

Powerful said the former governor has no right to cede Lokpanta to Fulani terrorists.

“Lokpanta is Abia State land and Orji Uzor Kalu has no right to mortgage the Abians’ safety for his personal political interest. Therefore, IPOB has the responsibility to recover the land from where the Fulani terrorists are launching attacks on our people.

“Kalu can rant as much as he wants but we must remain resilient to push the terrorists out of Lokpanta because the rate of killing and kidnapping happening along that area is so alarming to the point our people are no longer travelling on that road.

“Kalu should stop deceiving the public and tell them the reason he gifted an Abia State land to Fulanis for RUGA without their consent,” he added.
