IPOB Denies Involvement In Obiano’s Convoy Attack

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied involvement in the reported attack on Governor Willie Obiano’s convoy by unknown gunmen.

In a statement from its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB warned against linking it with the killings, insisting that the group did not come to kill but to save, restore and rebuild.

 “We strongly condemn the spate of senseless attacks on innocent people in South East by politically-recruited hoodlums masquerading as unknown gunmen.

“It is quite unfortunate that some unpatriotic and unscrupulous elements who are intimidating their fellow politicians because of the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State will resort to bloodletting for power.

“More annoying is the fact that after their atrocities, some brainwashed fellows will be pointing accusing fingers at IPOB.

“We condemn the attack on Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra State yesterday. Contrary to allegations by our enemies, IPOB has no hand in the said attack. It is now becoming more obvious that those Gov. Obiano accused of masterminding the killings in his state are angry with him for exposing them.

“The South East Governors that Obiano said he would not sit at table with to discuss insecurity in his state should be made to explain all they know about the senseless killings in Anambra State.

“We pity those who are chasing after shadow, pointing accusing fingers at IPOB. Such fellows are ignorant of what politicians are capable of doing because of power.

“Igbo politicians were not like this before but desperation for power and determination by Fulani cabal to replicate what happened in Imo State in Anambra State are the reason for this madness. Their ultimate goal is to demonise IPOB.

“They should stop linking IPOB with these killings because IPOB did not come to kill but to save, restore and rebuild.” the statement read.
