IPOB Denies Killing Of INEC Staff, Says Culprits Will Pay Dearly

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has reacted to the attack on Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials, saying it is not responsible for the killing of INEC officers.

IPOB also denied involvement in the ongoing security threat at the South-East region.

Recall that unknown gunmen killed INEC staff yesterday at Ihitte Uboma local government area, Imo State, during the Continuous Voters Registration Exercise (CVR).

In a footage circulating on the social media, the masked men were seen shouting, “we don’t want election, we want freedom. This will serve as a warning. Pack your things and leave our land.”

IPOB, however, in a statement, said they knew nothing about the killing of the INEC staff and prayed for the exposure of the hoodlum.

The statement reads: “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU, strongly condemn the attack on INEC staff at Ihite Uboma LGA of Imo State.

“We are also warning these traitors and enemies of Biafra behind these barbaric attacks to stop or be ready to reap the reward of their atrocities.

“IPOB cannot afford to allow them to continue to terrorise our people or demonise our peaceful organisation as some uninformed people appoint accusing fingers at us. IPOB is not happy with these criminal activities going on in our region.

“We don’t want this to continue and we are going to expose those behind this evil in the region. Anybody involved in this act will regret it.

“We totally disassociate from this act of criminality. IPOB volunteers and ESN have no hands in this criminal act that criminals randomly carry out against our people.

“We have made it clear to the public severally that IPOB members are not unknown gunmen and we cannot be because we have objective which is to restore Biafra as a free, Independent and Sovereign Nation. Anybody who is involved in this evil act on INEC officers at Ihite Uboma LGA will pay dearly.

“The masterminds are being sponsored by unfortunate politicians thinking they can jeopardize our decision to make Biafra freedom a reality. We want to make it publicly known that IPOB and its security units did not attack INEC officers in Imo State.

“IPOB will not relent in discovering those behind these devilish activities and expose them,” it said.
