The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra has declared war against methamphetamine consumers in the South-East and its environs.
Media and Publicity Secretary of the secessionist group, Emma Powerful, disclosed this on Tuesday in a statement forwarded to newsmen.
Describing youth consumption of the drug known as Mkpurummiri in local parlance as an ugly trend, the Biafra agitators asked communities to monitor where such drugs were being sold in their localities and report to IPOB offices nearest to them.
The statement read in part, “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra notes with utter displeasure, a very ugly and disturbing trend among some youths in Biafra land who have resorted to the consumption of a destructive hard drug methamphetamine known as
“Mkpurummiri”. This development is very strange and completely unacceptable.
“It is this same hard drug that renders Almajiris in the North useless, and we won’t allow this madness to creep in or fester among Biafran youths. We observe how the Department of State Services was using Mkpurummiri to create many problems among the North that metamorphosed into Alamajiri and janjaweed in the North.
“We won’t allow that to happen here in the regions; we encourage every community to have departments to checkmate those selling and taking Mkpurummiri.”
“Communities must ensure they report those involved in this madness to IPOB office for proper torturing because we don’t want this into our territory."
