THE Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, yesterday said it has no youth wing, contrary to the claim by one ‘Agu Biafra’ alleged to be claiming to be a leader and president of purported IPoB Youth Wing.
The pro-Biafra group in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful entitled, “The so-called IPoB Youth Wing by one Agu Biafra, is another criminal group paid to blackmail IPoB.
The Biafra agitating group also said that it has no unit or department called IPoB Youth Wing in it structure, urging the public to ignore them.
IPoB’s statement read, “The attention of the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the claim by one Agu Biafra, who is claiming to be a leader and president of IPoB Youth Wing.
“We want the public and the good people of Biafra to know that there is no unit or department called IPoB Youth Wing in IPOB Structure. The man ‘Agu Biafra’ and his co-conspirators may have been contracted by our enemies to form another unknown gunmen group in the name of IPoB to demonize IPoB.
“The man ‘Agu Biafra’, the self claimed IPoB youth president, should tell the public who created and appointed him as IPoB Youth President.
“Agu Biafra is a former MASSOB member sacked by the leadership of the group because of his criminal activities in MASSOB. If he thinks he can use the hallowed name of IPoB to continue his criminal activities, then he will go down with his violent agenda. Anybody who knows this should advise him to stay away from his evil agenda because if IPoB catches him, he will have himself to blame.
“IPoB has no group called IPoB Youth Wing, and we can never have such until Biafra comes. IPoB is IPoB with no attachment of any sort. Either you are IPoB or you are not. Anybody impersonating IPoB with whatever name is a traitor and must be treated as such.
Agu Bisfra is about to create another criminal gang in the South East Region. The more we try to stop one criminal group impersonating IPoB and ESN, the more our enemies are sponsoring other criminal groups to use ESN and IPoB names to perpetrate crimes just to blackmail IPoB.
“Nevertheless, we shall continue to expose and dislodge the contracted infiltrators, detractors, and criminals paid to blackmail the peaceful struggle led by IPoB. Nobody will be allowed to impersonate IPoB because IPoB is a peaceful movement seeking independence from the Nigeria State.”
