The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Dominicus said Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra Province has vindicated its members with his recent comment linking the killings in the southeast to the part’s political elites.
In a statement by its mouthpiece, Emma Powerful, the separatist grouping stressed that Igbo elites and politicians should be held responsible for the insecurity in the part.
Lately, the part has witnessed several killings and insecurity challenges, which have been linked to IPOB and its militia, the Eastern Security Network, ESN.
Nevertheless nonetheless, Powerful maintained that its members are not responsible for the killings and insecurity in the part.
According to Powerful: “We are the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), under the able leadership of our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We have ever distanced ourselves from the senseless killings in Biafra solid ground particularly in Anambra and Imo states but some gullible fellows do not want to believe us.
“At present we have been vindicated by the recent confession by Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra Province on why he did not attend the coming together of southeast governors in Enugu. The governor said without equivocations that he intentionally stayed absent from the coming together because he didn’t consider it proper to sit down at the tabular array and discuss security with those who are sponsoring the insecurity and killings in his province. Gov. Obiano did not mince words when he said that the killings in Anambra were politically motivated. He accused his fellow governors and politicians of masterminding the killings in his province for political gains.
“At present, our enquiry to all those still pointing accusing fingers at IPOB and Eastern Security Network (ESN) operatives for the killings in Anambra is: How many of the southeast Governors are IPOB members? Since according to Gov. Obiano the killings are existence sponsored by some persons expected in the coming together for political reasons, how many of the attendees are IPOB members? Can the same people who regain it tough to believe our explanations at present believe us whether we say that all southeast governors apart from Obiano are our members and sponsors?
“For the umpteenth time, allow’s restate that we have no hands in the senseless killings of harmless citizens in Biafra solid ground particularly Imo and Anambra states. Politicians and traitors bent on implicating IPOB to impress their Fulani slavemasters are the ones masterminding this genocide in collaboration with the wicked Nigerian security agents.”
