UPDATE: IPOB Identifies Alleged Killer Of Military, Denies Being Part of The Killing

IPOB, the Indigenous People of Biafra, has denied responsibility for the recent murder of a military couple on their way to Imo State.

The soldiers, Master Warrant Officer (MWO) Audu M Linus (retired) and Private (Pte) Gloria Matthew, were decapitated on Saturday on their way to Imo for their traditional wedding, according to Anaedoonline.ng.

The Nigerian Army accused the separatist organization and its militant branch, the Eastern Security Network, ESN, of being responsible for the murder in a statement released on Tuesday.

IPOB spokesperson Emma Powerful, in a statement, refuted the charges, claiming they could not have damaged their daughter and calling the act abhorrent.

The Nigerian Army and the Department of State Services, DSS, were accused of murdering the military couple, according to the statement.

The statement reads, “We, therefore, wish to place on record that IPOB has no hands in the said atrocity which is an abominable act in Igbo tradition. No true Igbo will hurt an in-law, how much more a married daughter (Ada) in Igbo land. Even the ancestors will avenge such wickedness.

“We cannot kill our sister who is about to marry but those who killed them were those Nigerian government and its security agencies, especially the military and DSS created to demonise IPOB and ESN.

“These agents of death some of whom we have made their identities public severally, are behind the killings of these soldiers, not IPOB or ESN operatives,” the separatist group claimed.
