President Muhammadu Buhari has lashed out on Amnesty International for their blatant criticism of how his government is handling the IPOB and crisis in the South East.
Buhari has continued to label IPOB as proscribed while he has refused to do same for Boko Haram terrorists and marauding Fulani herdsmen.
In a statement released on Wednesday, through his Aide, Garba Shehu, the President insisted the Eastern group has a stock pile of weapons across the whole nation.
The statement titled: “Why Amnesty entreaties should be ignored”, reads partly: “Amnesty International’s latest salvo at Nigeria is but more of the same.
“Again, they have decided to side with terrorists, before the liberty of those they injure, displace and murder. Parroting the line of Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB, a proscribed terror organisation, they work to legitimise its cause to Western audiences. This puts them in bad company. IPOB murder Nigerian citizens. They kill police officers and military personnel and set government property on fire.
“Now, they have amassed a substantial stockpile of weapons and bombs across the country. Were this group in a western country, you would not expect to hear Amnesty’s full-throated defence of their actions.”
