Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused the Nigeria security of masterminding the insecurity ravaging south east and in particular, Anambra state.
The Publicity Secretary of the group, Emma Powerful, alleged that the Nigerian Army and other security agencies had been behind the mask of insecurity in order to district its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from being released.
Powerful in his release to newsmen on Tuesday said the IPOB’s intelligence unit discovered that it was the gimmicks and antics of Nigeria government and its security agencies especially the Army, DSS, Police, NIA and DMI intelligence.
He said, ” We strongly condem the abominable beheading of Hon. Okechukwu Okoye who was abducted few days ago in his area. We want to also state categorically that contrary to insinuations in some quarters, the Indigenous people of Biafra IPOB could not in any way have had anything to do with this abominable act.
“It is imparative to state here that enemies of Biafra freedom and traitors in our region are seriously pulling all stunts to derail the freedom of our leader and the freedom of our dear Nation Biafra.
“After theoroughly investigations by our intelligence team we found out that the abnomable beheading of Hon Okechukwu Okoye is the system of the fifth columnists who are bent to destabilise the efforts of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB. These barbarians have been well mobilized financial and otherwise by DSS, NIA and DMI to create anarchy in our land in an tempt to derail our match to freedom.
“They will commit these henious crimes and their pay masters will use the Nigeria compromised media houses to accuse IPOB of being responsible for what we know nothing about. The question is why is IPOB being demonised unnecessarily?
” The simple answer is that we are fighting for the freedom of our people because we rejected their forceful take over of our land.
“IPOB is not in the business of kidnapping or car snatching and has never been and will never be and therefore we absolutely has nothing to do with the kidnap of Okechukwu Okoye.
“These kidnappers, kidnapped this man on the day the Executive Governor of Anambra State Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo visited our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU in the DSS custody and every member of IPOB was very happy because he was the only Governor in the whole of Biafraland who summoned the courage to visit our leader in Abuja, since his extraordinary rendition from Kenya to Nigeria.
“We reiterate once again that Hausas have suffered much in the hands of fulani like Biafrans and we will not allow any criminal to touch them again, they are free to do their business anywhere they like in our land and those who killed mother and children of hausa extraction to be ready and wait for us we are coming for them.
“So, it will be an irony to accuse IPOB that welcomed the courage of Gov. Chukwuma Soludo in visiting our leader when his brother governors are too afraid to do so, what is it going to benefit us killing the Governor’s lawmaker? What will be our gain in such wickedness? IPOB does not give life and we don’t take life. They should stop dragging IPOB into something we know nothing about because of their hatred for us and their desire to scutle the freedom of our leader and freedom of Biafra Nation.
“They are not comfortable with the genuine efforts by Soludo to secure the release of our leader. They just want to frustrate and distract him by making his state ungovernable the way they did with Hope Uzodinma in Imo State. They only want to divert his attention by trying to rope in IPOB into their evil enterprise. Since he visited our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU the power that be and some Nigeria fulani terrorist and security agents operating in Biafraland are not happy with him.
“The numerous Kidnappings in Biafraland are masterminded by Nigeria soldiers. Anybody in doubt of this fact should ask those who were victims of that kidnap in Nnewi LGA. Why should they be quick to point accusing fingers at IPOB while they are the ones behind the criminalities going-on in the region for almost two years.
“They began by burning houses and properties of our people and have now fully graduated into kidnappings and behaeding of our brothers and sisters in our own domain, the killings of Biafrans and gruesome beheadings of the victims willlead to unimaginable results soon. Our assurance to these maggots is that no matter their cruelty and barbarism, no matter their plan to try and cower us, they must know that we are Biafrans and at the end they will fail to stop IPOB from achieving Biafra freedom and independence.
“The criminalities and insecurity is caused by Nigeria Government and its compromised security agents in the region have metamorphosed into kidnap and gruesome murder including beheading of our youths by the Nigeria army and DSS agents who took the contract from Fulani controlled government of Nigeria to destroy, damage and demonise IPOB.”
