The Indigenous People of Biafra has advised founder and General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Williams Kumuyi to shelve his planned crusade in Abia State on Thursday.
In a statement issued by IPOB spokesman Emma Powerful, he said the group’s advice to the pastor to call off the campaign was due to the instability in the South-East region.
Stating that IPOB will not let anyone die, it however added that any deaths that occurred during the campaign would be attributed to the proscribed organisation.
The statement reads: “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU wishes to advise Pastor Kumuyi of Deeper life Ministry to take note of the security situation in the South East as he comes to Aba for his gospel crusade.
“Let him and the organisers of the crusade make sure that nothing happens. The security of this region is not good because of political and criminal activities; therefore we advise him to stop this crusade for security reasons.
“IPOB will not allow anyone to die because of this crusade scheduled to hold in Aba. The operation of criminals operating as unknown gunmen infiltrating the events is high and they will blame it on IPOB.
“We ask him to pray for an end to the insecurity in Biafra land if he can. We charge Christians and men of God in Biafra land to engage God in fervent prayers to expose all those behind the insecurity in our land.
“Kumuyi should also pray against wicked leaders and saboteurs in Biafra land and Nigeria. They are the real problems of the people. Let him use the opportunity to pray against the powers holding people captive in Nigeria in his church in Lagos.”
