Governor Ayo Fayose has accused the Army of ethnic cleansing, following the commencement of Operation Python Dance.

This is coming after a video of soldiers allegedly maltreating members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) surfaced on social media.

According to Sun Newspaper, Governor Fayose also reminded Nigerians that he warned against voting for Buhari.

He said “I have said it before now that it is only God that can help the Igbo people. What I see going when you see the video clips of that occupation the behaviour of the soldiers leaves much to be desired but they cannot act like that without a whistle blower, somebody is behind them telling them go and cleanse the people," Vanguard reports.

Fayose also said “I have said it earlier that this is beyond Kanu. That region entirely is embattled and challenged. But you know politics, time will tell. The wind blowing away your wife will blow you away one day.

"The wind blowing away your enemy today may blow, you say one day. It is unfortunate that the Ibo people are suffering this kind of fate.

” The herdsmen wrecking havoc all over, and killing, what has the military done to deal with them. Has anyone of the herdsmen been prosecuted, let alone giving them this kind of treatment?"

"You went to court to revoke Kanu’s bail but you can’t even wait for the court to take decision before occupying his house. Nigeria is in trouble except the Lord helps us. When the wicked are in authority, the people suffer, when the righteous are there the people rejoice.

"We are in a major dilemma. Buhari’s coming back to power, as I have said before is like returning to the dark days of the 1984 in no time, because they want to gag Nigerians they came up with a law against hate speech, they threatened to deal with people, arrest and all who cares.

"Glory be to God who can take both life and life beyond, these ones can only go for life and can’t do more than that.. Let me assure you, Nigeria is a country where God knows how to rearrange thing," the Governor added.

Reports say soldiers stormed the country home of Nnamdi Kanu on Thursday, September 14, 2017, and reportedly abducted his parents.
