The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma has been accused by the Indigenous People of Biafra of working with security operatives to kill innocent people in the state.
The spokesman of the group, Emma Powerful further stated that Uzodinma, the ruling All Progressives Congress, security operatives, and Ebubeagu have turned the State into an “abattoir for innocent Biafrans.”
Powerful made this claim while reacting to the report that military officers repelled and killed members of the Eastern Security Network in the state.
He added that reports that military officers killed operatives of ESN that allegedly attacked the palace of Eze Emmanuel Eze Okeke of Amaifeke in Orlu LGA Imo State are blatant lies by Uzodinma and his followers.
The statement reads, “We are the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi KANU. Following the frustration and lack of professionalism by the Nigerian security agencies, they have as usual resorted to lies and propaganda to deceive the gullible minds.
“The Nigerian Army and police parading and killing innocent citizens in Imo State have started with falsehood to demonise their innocent victims. They can only deceive those who don’t know what is happening in Imo State since Hope Uzodinma and his APC party turned Imo State into an abattoir for innocent Biafrans.
“Nigerian security agents and Ebubeagu security members recruited by Hope Uzodinma were operating and killing innocent citizens in Imo State have lied again that they repelled ESN operatives who allegedly besieged the palace of Eze Emmanuel Eze Okeke of Amaifeke in Orlu LGA Imo State.
“This is another blatant lie from the pit of hell. IPOB/ESN operatives have no issues with traditional rulers in Biafraland but Nigeria army and police are trying to create the wrong impression that we are hunting the monarchs.”
