The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)has strongly condemned the recent attack on the staff of the Independent National Electoral Comission(INEC)at Ihite Uboma Council of Imo State.
Reacting to the reported unfortunate incident, the spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful said,
“We are warning these traitors and enemies of Biafra who are 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 point 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…”
According to the press statement from IPOB and signed by Powerful, “we are going to expose those behind this evil in the region.
“And anybody involved in this act will regret it. We totally disassociate ourselves from this criminality.
“IPOB volunteers and ESN have no hands in this criminal act randomly carried out against our people.“
The statement insisted 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.”
IPOB therefore that its security unit did not attack INEC officers in Imo State. They accused the Federal Government and others it referred to as “their collaborators are sponsoring these criminal groups to attack our people in the name of IPOB to instigate crisis so people can disassociate themselves from IPOB activities and the entire world will see IPOB as terror group but they will fail and will not raise their ugly heads again.”
