The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Sunday said it has been vindicated by the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano’s recent explanation on why he failed to attend the meeting of South East Governors in Enugu.
Obiano had said that he deliberately stayed away from the meeting because he didn’t consider it proper to sit and discuss security with those who are sponsoring the insecurity and killings in his state.
IPOB in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said: “Gov. Obiano did not mince words when he said that the killings in Anambra was politically motivated. He accused his fellow governors and politicians of masterminding the killings in his state for political gains.
“Now, our question 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 South East Governors are IPOB members? Since according to Gov. Obiano, the killings are being sponsored by some persons expected in the meeting for political reasons, how many of the attendees are IPOB members? Can the same people who find it hard to believe our explanations now believe us if we say that all South East governors, except Obiano, are our members and sponsors?
“For the umpteenth time, let's restate that we have no hands in the senseless killings of innocent citizens in Biafra land, especially Imo and Anambra States. Politicians and traitors bent on implicating IPOB to impress their Fulani slave masters are the ones masterminding this genocide in collaboration with the wicked Nigerian security agents.
“The recent incident in Imo State where a Police man pursued an ‘unknown gunman’, shot and killed him only to discover that the said ‘unknown gunman’ was a personnel of the Department of State Services (DSS) was a further proof that politicians created the insecurity in South East. But instead of telling the truth, DSS covered up the exposed evil by claiming that their personnel was mistakenly killed by the police.
“The attack on this DSS man in Imo State shows that Hope Uzodinma equipped many hoodlums in security uniforms to disguise as IPOB and attack people to implicate and demonize IPOB. This is the card they have been playing but many people in their ignorance don’t still understand their antics.
“The simple truth is that Hope Uzodinma and his fellow traitors in their quest for power, have created fake ESN to cause fear in South East, and ultimately demonize IPOB but we are smarter than them. We challenge Hope Uzodinma to swear an oath that he has no hands in the killings in Imo and Anambra states.
“We know that the gullible minds may still not believe us but the fact remains that APC in its desperation to take over South East, has set the zone ablaze because of politics. South East should hold APC and desperate politicians responsible for the mayhem in the zone aimed at beating Ndigbo into submission.”
While insisting that IPOB is for and not against Ndigbo, the group explained that it rose to challenge Fulani herdsmen killing of the people when South East governors were too cold to condemn the barbarity for fear of Aso Rock.
It added: “We have always distanced ourselves from the senseless killings in Biafra land especially in Anambra and Imo States but some gullible fellows do not want to believe us.
“How can we turn around and begin to kill the same people we are risking our lives to defend? It makes no sense! Count us out of this nonsense and the media propaganda of our oppressors.”
