The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has berated the Department of State Services (DSS) over claims that it engages in cannibalism.
Recall that DSS had accused IPOB and its armed wing, the Eastern Security Network (ESN) of practising cannibalism after discovering roasted human flesh in a criminal hideout in Anambra State.
In a statement signed by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, IPOB denied claims that its members eat human flesh and engage in barbaric acts.
Powerful stated that the claim by the DSS was meant to demonise IPOB and ESN operatives and tag them as criminals.
He said: “We have nothing in common with agents of death, and we don’t engage in barbarities and cannibalism of sorts.
“What is happening in Imo particularly in Orsuihiteukwa, Nnempi, Ibiasoegbe, Awo-Mmamma, Orlu, Oru East, Oru West, Nkwere and their environs including Orsumoghu and entire Ihiala LGA of Anambra State are the original plans to demonise Biafra agitators and ESN operatives and tag them as criminals but unfortunately their plan failed.
“IPOB/ESN operatives don’t engage in raping and kidnapping. That’s not part of their mandate. They are out to defend them (Imolites) against terrorists and criminal herdsmen.”
