IPOB reacts to the death of three suspected members of its militia arm, Eastern Security Network (ESN), reported killed by Imo State Police Command on Saturday
IPOB in a statement issued by Emma Powerful alleged that the police in the state, led by Commissioner of Police Abutu Yaro, has turned the killing of youths in the state into a monthly affair.
IPOB said, “We the global family of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, strongly condemn the incessant unprovoked killings and attacks on innocent citizens of Imo State by the Nigeria security agencies supervised by the Commissioner of Police Imo State CP Abutu Yaro.
“The victims of this secret genocide are tagged Eastern Security Network, ESN operatives and IPOB members by the wicked security agencies to give them wrong identity and justify their extra-judicial killing. For sure, every Igbo man and woman is IPOB but not ESN. ESN is a child of necessity and not for everybody. It’s for a special group for a definite assignment which is mandated to defend our ancestral land our mothers, wives and sisters against the Fulani invaders.”
“It is sheer wickedness for the Fulani-controlled Police and sister security agencies to be killing Imo youths like fowls after parading them as ESN and IPOB members. Our governors, politicians and traditional rulers are keeping mute but we promise you people that it will surely come to you in dangerous ways soon.
“We will no longer allow these double-faced fellows who cannot confront Fulani bandits to be randomly killing our people and label them IPOB and ESN operatives.
“The International community should not believe Nigeria and their lies against IPOB and ESN. The security agencies had tried hard to penetrate ESN but it was not easy for them, then they decided to use propaganda and false information against IPOB and ESN.
