The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has refuted claims of setting up the attack on Imo State police headquarters and the Correctional Centre in Owerri earlier today, Oyogist.com reports.
According to POB spokesman, Emma Powerful, the unknown gunmen responsible for the attack “are not IPOB or ESN security outfit.”
“ESN is in the bush chasing Fulani terrorists. Why linking IPOB and ESN to this attack? IPOB and ESN were not involved in the attack in Owerri, Imo State. and the recent attack on Onitsha Owerri road at Ukwuorji junction.
“The Nigeria Government and her compromised media outfits should stop linking IPOB and ESN to the multiple attacks going on in Nigeria now.
Recall Oyogist had earlier reported that the IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu justified the attack.
Kanu, in his reaction, said “no one deserves to be in prison in Nigeria“.
