According to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), some terrorists posing as Nigerian security personnel have carried out attacks in the South-East.
The assailants have been burning homes, cars, and other goods in the area while pretending to be seeking for IPOB members, according to a statement made by IPOB spokesperson Emma Powerful on Wednesday.Residents in the area were being detained and extorted, according to IPOB, who also claimed that those who refused to pay were either killed or imprisoned.
The statement said, in part, “The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) hereby advises Nigeria Police, DSS, and Army to stop destroying people’s properties in the guise of seeking for IPOB members. IPOB is led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is wrongfully being held in DSS solitary confinement.

“It’s obvious that the Nigerian security agencies parading in Biafra territory are not regular professional security agents, but terrorists recruited into Nigeria’s security services to terrorise Biafrans.
“The so-called repentant terrorists were recruited and sent to Biafra land to destroy our livelihood and our people. Some of them are involved in snatching cars from innocent Biafrans.”
“These terrorists in Nigerian security uniforms are brainwashed to hate Ndigbo, and they have laid siege on Alaigbo,” it stated.
“In the case of their political opponents and wealthy Igbo people, they tag them IPOB sponsors. Even innocent Igbo youths are not spared. They can randomly abduct innocent youths, tag them IPOB members, and demand them to pay hundreds of thousands of Naira or millions to buy their freedom or get jailed or worse, possibly be extrajudicially killed.”
The group, then said, “We, therefore, call on the Nigerian government to unconditionally release our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is being held illegally in the DSS dungeon and schedule a date for the Biafra referendum.”
