BIAFRA- Former Special Adviser on New Media to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri on Sunday said the United States, US, stance that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is not a terrorist group has exposed the hypocrisy of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government.
After the proscription of the group, US had declared that it does not consider the pro-Biafra group as a terrorist organisation.
Besides, the Senior Special Adviser to Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu had declared that Fulani herdsmen are only a gang of criminals and not terrorists while IPOB is a terrorists organisation.
Omokri said “killer herdsmen” deserved the terrorism tag “much more” than IPOB.
The Former Special Adviser, in a video on his Facebook, berated the Buhari-led government of ignoring the activities of the herdsmen “identified as terrorists by the US and the UK”, while going after IPOB for agitating for Biafra.
Omokri said while the global terrorism index rank herdsmen as the fourth deadliest terrorist group in the whole world, IPOB “is not even featured in the index, yet our government calls them terrorists”.
He said, “The herdsmen who are considered terrorists by the US, the UK, the European Union and even the World Economic Forum are not considered terrorists by the Nigerian government. But the people who are not considered terrorists by these countries and groups are the ones the Nigerian government is considering as terrorists.
“The dictionary defines a terrorist as someone who unlawfully uses violence to achieve political aims. And by the dictionary definition, you can see that herdsmen actually fits into the category of a terrorist more than IPOB.
“How many people have IPOB members killed? Have they gone and killed people in northern Nigeria, or in south-western Nigeria or in the south-south? No.
“The herdsmen are currently the fourth deadliest terrorist group in the whole world yet our government says these herdsmen are not terrorists.
“I’ve read the Bible and the Koran, so I know where things are coming from. Even Prophet Mohammad does not support this kind of injustice that the Buhari administration is perpetuating.”
