IPOB Distances Self From Attack On INEC Staff



The Indigenous People of Biafra has said that its members do not have any link with unknown gunmen that have terrorised the Southeast region of Nigeria over the years.

IPOB was reacting to the recent attack on INEC officials that claimed the life of one and left some others injured in Imo State.

The group, through its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, condemned the attack and assured the public that they will unmask those behind the incessant attacks on SE states.

He said the group will not tolerate any form of attack on “the people of Biafra”.

The statement reads, “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, strongly condemn the attack on INEC staff at Ihite Uboma LGA of Imo State.

“We are also warning these traitors and enemies of Biafra behind these barbaric attacks to stop or be ready to reap the reward of their atrocities. IPOB cannot afford to allow them to continue to terrorise our people or demonise our peaceful organisation as some uninformed people appoint accusing fingers at us.

“IPOB is not happy with these criminal activities going on in our region because we don’t want this to continue and we are going to expose those behind this evil in the region.

“Anybody involved in this act will regret it. We totally disassociate from this act of criminality.  IPOB volunteers and ESN have no hands in this criminal act that criminals randomly carry out against our people.

“We have made it clear to the public severally that IPOB members are not unknown gunmen and we cannot be because we have objective which is to restore Biafra as a free, Independent and Sovereign Nation.

“Anybody who is involved in this evil act on INEC officers at Ihite Uboma LGA will pay dearly.  The masterminds are being sponsored by unfortunate politicians thinking they can jeopardise our decision to make Biafra freedom a reality.

“We want to make it publicly known that IPOB and its security units did not attack INEC officers in Imo State. IPOB will not relent in discovering those behind these devilish activities and expose them.”
