The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, yesterday, debunked the   news peddled by the military that they invaded ESN camp and captured ESN commanders in Orlu and Okigwe Local Government Areas of Imo State. 

The group cautioned the military to call the criminals they capture by their names, adding that it’s very unprofessional for the military to tag every criminal element captured as IPOB and ESN just for media blackmail against IPOB and propaganda to continue their criminal activities.

A statement by Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, declared: “ESN operatives are right inside Biafra bushes and forests dislodging  marauding Fulani terrorists masquerading as herdsmen for the safety of our farmers and farmlands, particularly during the farming season.

“We know that the Nigerian military and her sister security agencies want to destroy ESN to pave the way for the Fulani  terrorists to destroy our farmlands, but that will not happen. 

“We advise the Nigerian government and her security agencies to desist from linking ESN and IPOB volunteers to their sponsored criminal elements, who were kidnapping and snatching people’s property in the name of the Biafra struggle.

“Repeatedly, IPOB has dissociated itself from these government-sponsored criminals terrorising Okigwe and Orlu communities in Imo State. The Nigerian government and its security agencies cannot claim ignorance of those criminals.

“The criminals even disassociated themselves from ESN. They call themselves Biafran Liberation Army, claiming to be fighting for Biafra but are involved in lots of violent crimes against Ndigbo.”
