IPOB set to clamp down on distributors, consumers of ‘Mkpuru mmiri’ illicit drug

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has vowed to go after the distributors and consumers of methamphetamine popularly called “Mkpuru mmiri”  illicit drug in the South East.

According to the group, consumption and selling of the destructive hard drug by South-East youths can never be accepted or welcomed in any part of the region.

The group stated this in a statement signed by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful on Tuesday.

Powerful, however, commended communities that had already risen to curb the trend. 

He then solicited useful information about those behind the distribution of this illicit drug.

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, notes with utter displeasure a very ugly and disturbing trend among some youths in Biafra land who have resorted to the consumption of a destructive hard drug methamphetamine, popularly known as “Mkpuru Mmiri.” This development is very strange and completely unacceptable. 

“IPOB hereby declares war against this nonsense. We shall go after those taking or distributing this harmful illicit drug. 

“Henceforth, anyone found peddling, consuming or in any way involved in the distribution of this illicit drug shall be decisively dealt with.

“Biafran youths are known for their enterprising spirit, entrepreneurship and diligence. 

“IPOB will not allow evil men and unpatriotic elements to ruin or destroy the future of our youths with Mkpuru Mmiri.

“While we commend communities who have already risen to curb this evil, we solicit useful information about those behind the distribution of this illicit drug so we will teach them in the language they understand.

“Our desire is that Biafra will be one of the best countries in the world and a role model for sister African countries. This is the mindset we want our youths to imbibe.”
