- Benjamin Igwe Onwuka, the leader of BZF, claimed that the military invasion in the state has nothing to do with Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB)
- He, however, said the army is not supposed to be interfering in the internal security situation of the nation
The Biafra Zionists Federation ( BZF) said Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, the chief of army staff and Lai Mohammed, the minister of information, will end up in prison over the recent deployment of troops to Abia state.
Reports have it Benjamin Igwe Onwuka, the leader of BZF, on Tuesday, September 26, said Lai Mohammed will face International Criminal Court (ICC) over the recent killings in the state.
According to Onwuka, ''It is clearly a tragedy. It is clearly a military invasion; it has nothing to do with IPOB or Nnamdi Kanu. This is the North invading the east because of Biafra. I want to deeply condemn that act.
''The attack on Biafran soil is an attack on all of us. The army is not supposed to be interfere in the internal security situation of the nation; they are not supposed to get involved in domestic security of the country. So, sending the army to Aba and Umuahia was with an ulterior motive.
''Using Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB to as a pretext to kill young men and women in Abia and other parts of Igbo land, the North will have to pay for it. So, I condemn in totality the brutality of the army in the name Operation Python Dance.
''We, therefore, state clearly today that all those involved, the Chief of Defence Staff, the Chief of Army Staff and the Minister of information, will pay for these killings, They will all end up in ICC and then in prison.

''For Lai Mohammed, can you see the lopsidedness in his argument? How can someone compare IPOB with herdsmen? These herdsmen have been killing people in their hundreds unhindered and that is why I insist that some Northern leaders are behind Boko Haram and herdsmen.
''So, the statement from Lai Mohammed is rubbish and I am telling him today that he will face ICC over the killings in Abia.
''We are as well calling on the Northern religious leaders, the Sultan of Sokoto and the Emir of Kano to call President Buhari and the Army Chiefs to order''.
