Onitsha- The intention of The Nigerian government to carry out a massacre was a response to a precise logic of further weakening of Biafrans. In fact, the massacre was intended to eliminate a large number of IPOB members. The IPOB prisoners were eliminated in a place chosen specifically for the mass killings, located in the county of Onitsha, Biafraland. Once killed in cold blood, their remains were thrown near Onitsha morgue. The killings and transfer of the corpses of IPOB members were under the supervision of Buhari and Anambra state Governor, Willie Obiano.

Detailed information discovered on the inhumane executions of IPOB members were provided by an NGO "Intersociety group": "Apart from the shootings and killings, hundreds of IPOB/pro-Biafra activists and their supporters particularly in the South-South and the South-East zones are presently languishing in various prisons across the country after being arraigned in inferior courts that do not have jurisdictional competence to try them on spurious charges of capital felonies leveled against them. Such felonies carry the death penalty and life imprisonment on conviction. This segment of the dastardly act is solely perpetrated by the Nigeria Police Force, in addition to indiscriminate arrest and arbitrary detention of members and supporters of the group using criminal stigmatization by labeling them “Biafra members”. 

Torture and other cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment or punishment is also a routine and commonly used by soldiers, navy and police personnel in the treatment of arrested and detained IPOB activists.

There are also cases of disappearances of IPOB/pro-Biafra activists and supporters. In Abia State and between the state and Rivers State, corpses of unarmed citizens suspected to be IPOB/pro-Biafra activists and their supporters are indiscriminately dumped in burrow pits or buried in shallow graves. While 16 dead bodies were recently discovered in two different locations in Aba and environs.

There is also the latest discovery of eight more corpses in a pit in the border town of Etche in Rivers State, the area is located between Abia, Imo and Rivers states. According to Comrade Michael Okoro, an IPOB official in Abia State and a resident of Aba, “I went to the abandoned site last week where the eight corpses were dumped and I saw them. We strongly suspect that those eight new corpses dumped in Etche Community are Biafrans arrested in their homes and other locations as well as those arrested by soldiers since 9th of February 2016 at Ngwa High School, who were moved to the Ohafia Military Barracks. 

One of those arrested on that day and taken to Ohafia Barracks alongside others got freed recently on account of his father’s wealth and connections. It was from him and other reliable resources that we gathered that even up till now, our members are still there while others' whereabouts are unknown till date. It is possible they are taken to those secret places alive and executed. Families whose loved ones have gone missing on account of IPOB non-violent protests in Aba are too afraid to speak out”.

This expressly suggests that the Nigerian Army in the area dominated by soldiers of Hausa-Fulani stock is engaged in the systematic and secret execution of those in their captivity, after which they are sparsely dumped in pits or buried in mass graves. The executions were carried out with guns provided by America and England. Those American weapons and ammunition used to kill IPOB members were the same that Boko Haram and Fulani Herdsmen uses.

The method by which Biafrans' mass killings were carried out have been studied in detail. Initially, the personal data of the convicted were verified, then they were abducted from home and handcuffed and taken to an isolated cell. After being ushered into the cell, they were immediately killed by a blow to the neck. The gunshot was masked by the operation of loud machines (perhaps fans). The body was then transferred outdoors, passing by a rear door and then was loaded on one of the Nigerian Army's six trucks specially prepared for the transport. This procedure is repeated every night by the Nigerian military army of Hausa/Fulani and Yoruba origins.

These sad and unfortunate incidences has gone along way in confirming the height of ethnic hatred, wickedness and acts of terror displayed by these Hausa/Fulani ethnic bigots in military uniform who should be protecting the lives and properties of the citizens but chose to transfer their hatred and terror on peaceful and innocent Biafrans merely exercising their rights to self-determination, and demonstration.
This is also to place the whole world on notice, so that when looking for the real terrorists, they know where to search for them.
