The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has asked Pastor Williams Kumuyi of Deeper Life Bible Church to cancel his scheduled crusade in Abia State.
The pro-Biafra group issued the stern warning in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, on Thursday.
IPOB asked the cleric to cancel the planned crusade because any attack that leads to bloodshed would be planned on the group.
According to the group, Kumuyi and other clerics should pray for an end to killings in the South-East.
IPOB spokesperson said: “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.”
