The so-called ‘unknown gunmen’ terrorizing major parts of Nigeria’s southeast region for the past one year, have released a video wherein they outlined their objectives.
The video was reported to have been released on Thursday, 21 April, 2022.
TheFact Nigeria gathers that in the 2 minutes 55 seconds clip shot in a forest, one person among the gunmen said their grouse is the detainment of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
The group also claimed that it has no sponsor, and insisted that “anybody that attempts any election matter will die”.
“We the unknown gunmen in Biafraland have come to make our position known to the public. We are here to protect our fatherland by all means. We don’t have any sponsor. And we are not planning to have,” a gunman said.
“We are not under the command of Simon Ekpa, DOS or Uwazuruike. Any government giving any of these people money is wasting their time. Only the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu can calm us down. Monday sit-at-home is sacrosanct. Nothing can stop it apart from the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“There shall be no election, and anybody that attempts any election matter will die,” they said.
