The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has advised Pastor William Kumuyi, who is the General Overseer of the Deeper Life Bible Church, to cancel his upcoming crusade in Abia State.
The separatist group cited security concerns in the South-East.
In a statement on Thursday, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, cautioned Kumuyi to take note of the security situation in the South-East as he comes to Aba for his gospel crusade.
Powerful said, “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.”
He urged the pastor to pray against bad leaders and saboteurs in the South-East and Nigeria.
