The Nnamdi Kanu led indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Group has said it wasn’t responsible for the death of 128 security personnel in Imo State.

The group made this disclosure in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful.

The statement read ;

“The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra has been drawn to the fallacious and fabricated statements credited to the Commander, 34 Field Artillery Brigade Obinze, Gen. Raymond Utasaha, and Commissioner of Police, Imo State, Alhaji Abudu Yaro, that IPOB killed 128 security personnel in Imo State.

“The statements are not only fabricated but ridiculous and untenable. How could IPOB that is not armed be able to kill as many as 128 security personnel in one state? What an illogical and ridiculous claim.

“We, therefore, wish to declare for the records that IPOB did not kill any security personnel in Imo or any state for that matter. IPOB, since its inception, has remained a peaceful movement with the sole mandate of restoring Biafra.

“We have not changed our non-violent philosophy for the restoration of Biafra. If for any reason we need to change our peaceful approach, we shall make the same public, but for now, we have not gone into an arms struggle, and don’t intend to.

“It will be necessary again to clarify that IPOB is not, and should not be taken for ‘unknown gunmen’ that have been reported having issues with security agencies in parts of the country, especially the defunct Eastern Nigeria. IPOB should not be held responsible for the activities of a group not commissioned by us.
