IPOB dissociates self from alleged members killed by Nigerian Police, seized rocket launchers, others

Secessionist agitators, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has stated that no amount of blackmail and propaganda by the Nigerian Government can change its resolve to actualize its dream of a sovereign Biafra Nation, SaharaReporters reports.

The spokesman for the separatist organisation, Emma Powerful in a statement he issued on Sunday, said IPOB would not back out of its course to achieve a separate Biafra Nation.

IPOB stressed this as part of its reaction to a report by the Anambra State Police Command that its operatives neutralised five members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), the militant wing of the IPOB.

Describing the police’s claim that its operatives killed IPOB and ESN operatives as utter garbage and falsehood, Powerful said the police cannot confront its militant wing without receiving the heat, noting that they are not people who can be easily killed.

He said, “We the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu, a prisoner of conscience, unequivocally refute the concocted lies and falsehood which the Nigeria Government and its security agencies are peddling to the effect that the criminals and kidnappers with whom the Nigerian DSS and Police have hitherto been working together whom they have now eliminated to cover their evil tracks in Anambra State are operatives of ESN and IPOB members.

“That claim is nothing but the usual lie and propaganda against IPOB and ESN being propagated by a morally bankrupt and shameless Nigerian Security apparatus to discredit our genuine struggle for Self-determination in the International community.

“The criminal gang led by Odumodu, who was murdered by the Nigeria Security Agents recently in Anambra State, were not IPOB members nor ESN operatives. In fact, the murdered criminals were among the names that one of our leaders, Mazi Chinasa Nworu, publicly announced as among the criminals who in collaboration with the Nigerian DSS were being used to impersonate ESN operatives while tormenting our people during one of his radio Biafra broadcast last month.

“It is on that very broadcast that he declared them wanted and promised a reward for anyone who can give tips on how to arrest and detain them.

“By this very action, IPOB made it clear to all and sundry that these criminals are not ESN operatives or IPOB members and to prevent these criminals falling into the hands of our gallant ESN operatives, the Nigerian DSS and police had to set them up for elimination.”

The statement added, “The Nigerian Security agencies must understand that ESN are not riff-raff that can be killed by them anyhow without they the Security agencies losing on the battle field.”

IPOB spokesman stated that the global family of IPOB was not surprised that the Nigerian government and its security agencies were feeding the public with falsehood, noting that IPOB had become their worst nightmare.

“The news that Police had gunned down IPOB members and recovered rockets launchers and AK-47 rifles, are all garbage, false and laughable because IPOB and ESN Operatives don’t indulge in criminalities or enforce non-existing sit-at-home orders. Everyone should go back and listen to the video where the agents called those guys criminals.

“Below are the names of the criminals operating between Anambra and Imo States who are already on IPOB’s most wanted list for impersonation:

“Temple aka Butuzo, Calistus Ochiagha, Kpakpando, Obere, Zuma, Sky, 50cent, Oberensi, Uduego, Ojinmiri, Ifeanyi, Agama and Edge. These gang members carrying out criminal activities between Anambra and Imo States are not IPOB members nor ESN Operatives.’

Powerful described IPOB as “an upright organisation” that cannot be involved in “any criminalities in Biafraland or anywhere”.

“We can’t force unwilling people to support the struggle, and neither are we going to kidnap or snatch cars of the same people we are fighting to free from Nigerian bondage,” he added.
