The Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) has declared war against methamphetamine, (popularly known as Mkpurummiri) consumers in the South-East and its environs.
Media and Publicity Secretary of the secessionist group, Emma Powerful, on Tuesday, described youth consumption of Mkpurummiri 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.
While accusing some security agencies of complicity in the racketeering of the hard drug, the seperatist group called on communities to ensure they report those involved in the madness to its office for proper torturing.
The statement partly reads, “We note 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 popularly known as ” Mkpuru Mmiri.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.
“IPOB hereby declare war against this nonsense. We shall go after those taking or distributing this harmful illicit drug. Henceforth, anyone found peddling, consuming or in anyway involved in the distribution of this illicit drug shall be decisively dealt with.
“Biafran youths are known for their enterprising spirit, entrepreneurship and diligence. IPOB will not allow evil men and unpatriotic elements to ruin or destroy the future of our youths with Mkpuru Mmiri.
“While we commend communites who have already risen to curb this evil, we solicit useful information about those behind the distribution of this illicit drug so we will teach them in the language they understand.
“Our desire is that Biafra will be one of the best countries in the world and a role model for sister African countries. This is the mindset we want our youths to imbibe, and not the evil infested Nigeria mentality.”
