The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused some politicians and government officials in the South-East alongside security agencies of planning to abducted some of its members.
In a statement from the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB alleged that Southeast Governors, Ohaneze Ndigbo, traditional rulers and President Generals of some communities were secretly compiling names of suspected IPOB members and ESN operatives across the zone.
The proscribed Biafra group stated that the named individuals want to transmit the names to the Nigerian government.
Powerful alleged the move, suggested by the Federal Government and her security operatives was targeted at weakening its security outfit in their efforts to flush herdsmen out of its territory.
The group vowed to make the South-East zone hot for governor if they refuse to withdraw the alleged plans against its members and supporters.
“We have severally explained that ESN has nothing to do with the unknown gunmen responsible for the attacks in South East. We wonder why Government will continue to associate us with that group without investigations,” the statement read.
“We expect all tradinonal ruler and P/G’s in the South East communities to retrace their steps before it gets too late. The land will also rise against them if they allow this to happen! Any IPOB member or ESN operative killed shall be avenged!”
