IPOB raises alarm, accuses Nigeria Army of planting IEDs in Biafra land

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has alerted Biafrans and the international community that the Nigeria security agents, especially Nigeria Army, have allegedly changed tactics in the desperation to indict IPOB and Eastern Security Network (ESN) volunteers.

It said that the Nigerian army has now resorted to planting bombs in Biafraland in pursuance of its agenda to commit mass murder of Biafran people.

The group in a statement by its media and publicity secretary, Emna Powerful, said: “It is on record that IPOB, ESN, Volunteers and members have no business with IEDs because we do not need IEDs to drive Fulani terrorist Herdsmen from our forests and Farm lands. The Nigerian army however now populated or made up of Boko Haram and ISWAP are known to use IEDs because of their unquenching taste for innocent blood.

“Nigeria Government in their desperation to deminish the outstanding global reputation of IPOB and of the ESN at home, has fully institutionalised kidnapping in the South East as a secret revenue machine of the Government against the Igbos and the South.

“They are no longer satisfied with the Army and Police road blocks on every kilometre on our roads which extort billions of dollars from Biafrans yearly. Now they have notched it up a bit with kidnappings though the instrumentality of their Security agencies and its militia the Fulani terrorist herdsmen.”

IPOB urged Biafrans and the general public to be wary of the latest depopulation scheme, indictment and victimization, blaming it on the strategy being adopted by the Nigeria Army and DSS agents.

It described as unfortunate, absurd, disgraceful and humiliating, Nigeria government refusal to heed the call by the International community to dialogue which IPOB is open to, rather it is flooding the Military, Immigration, Customs, Civil Defense Counter Terrorists, DSS and other paramilitary agencies in Biafran Territory fully armed to the teeth with guns and bombs.

It added: “They now plant IEDs in our land at strategic locations that only them knows about. These IEDs they can activate, deactivate and exhume them at will in company of Government accredited media house members and staff for disinformation documentary and campaign against IPOB.”

While describing IPOB as a globally registered and recognised peaceful movement, it disassociated itself from explosives planting, saying: “We value the lives of those for whom we agitate for their freedom. IPOB will only accept and do anything that will guarantee us freedom from Nigeria, this is not to say that our ingenuity, abundant talents and competencies are in doubt should the push comes to shove.

“Nigeria army burying explosives in the land of Biafra is to let our people know that Nigeria Government and its compromised security agencies especially army and DSS will like to kill every single person moving around in Biafraland and make a clear way for fulani to take over our ancestral lands.

“The international community knows that IPOB does not engage in explosives as Nigeria security agencies especially DSS and army personnel want them to believe but it’s important the we restate this fact that our struggle has no need of bombs and IEDs.”
