The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has stated that the Nigerian government and its security personnel should be held responsible for the killing of their fellow personnel and burning of Institutions in the South-East.
IPOB said it is a common phenomenon that the government is usually quick to point accusing fingers at the group within minutes of any attack in the South-East without investigation.
This was contained in a statement issued on Saturday by the group spokesman, Emma Powerful, condemning the reckless murder of Nigerian soldiers.
He, however, cautioned the Nigerian Army to stop accusing IPOB members falsely, adding that they are not responsible for the attacks and killings.
The statement read in part; “In view of the recent murder of four Nigerian soldiers in Enugu State as well as those in Anambra State which were accompanied by the most reckless and senseless accusations against IPOB as being behind the attacks, it has become very imperative to caution the Nigerian Army and government to desist from such unfounded and false accusations against the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
“It is a common phenomenon that the Nigerian government and their Security Agencies are quick to point accusing fingers at IPOB within minutes of any attack in the East without investigation. It is surprising that they haven’t linked IPOB to the insecurity ravaging Northern Nigeria.
“We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of the liberator, Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU, condemns the reckless murder of Nigeria soldiers but at the same time caution the Nigerian Army to stop accusing IPOB members falsely. We are not responsible for the attacks and killings.”
“We have remained a peaceful movement seeking for freedom and Independence of Biafra people in spite of all the persecutions and provocations at the hand of the Nigerian state. But we shall not take any blackmail from the government just because they hate our resolve to get Biafra at all cost but most importantly through peaceful agitation.
“As for us in IPOB and ESN our hands are clean from all the government accusations. We take responsibility for our actions. Our focus is to get rid of terrorists in our forests and our bushes who are raping our women, killing our farmers, and destroying our farms.
“On killing of security men and burning of Institutions; in Biafra land, the Nigerian government, and her foot soldiers should be held responsible,” the statement added.
