IPOB has never killed anyone,Fani-Kayode tells DHQ

Femi Fani-Kayode Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani – Kayode , has faulted the military’ s declaration of the Indigenous People of Biafra a terrorist organisation . The Defence Headquarters had on Friday, branded the IPOB a terrorist organisation and urged parents to dissuade their wards from joining the group. In response to the DHQ ’ s move , Fani – Kayode wondered how IPOB could be declared a terrorist group since the organisation had never killed anyone. “ How can anyone describe an unarmed group of people as terrorists ,” The former minister said in a statement he sent to The PUNCH. “ As far as I am aware , Nnamdi Kanu and members of his IPOB have never killed anyone and neither have they been carrying arms. “ Theirs is a peaceful non -violent struggle in pursuit of a legitimate aspiration and objective. Violence and arms have no place in that struggle and in my view , the military is simply trying to create an atmosphere of terror , fear and intimidation in order to justify their actions in the east and a general clampdown on those they perceive as enemies of the state . ” He added that it is a pity that things have degenerated to this level , calling for restraint on all sides . “ This is a democracy and not a military dictatorship, ” Fani -Kayode said .
