INEC Are Hiding The Identities Of Those Responsible For The Attacks On Their Facilities – IPOB

 

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has claimed that they have no intention of disrupting the upcoming 2023 election.

IPOB in a press release issued on Monday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, distanced itself from attacks on the facilities of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Imo State.

The group warned security agencies to desist from linking them to the attacks on INEC facilities.

The pro-Biafra movement went on to inform those destroying the electoral offices and masquerading themselves as members of the group that they would suffer hard times.

According to them, “ESN operatives never attacked INEC office because we are not interested in this Nigeria’s forthcoming election in 2023. Anyone or group blaming IPOB or ESN for any attack on INEC facilities is under the influence of some powerful drugs.

“IPOB will not spare anybody using our name to disrupt election, and nobody should link us with those who are destroying election materials.”

They went on to accuse INEC of hiding the identities of those truly responsible for the attacks on their facilities.

They wondered why none of their members had been apprehended if they were truly responsible for the disturbance.

IPOB accused security agencies of hoarding information about the true identities of those behind the attacks.

Both Government agencies and those attacking INEC facilities are working together to blackmail IPOB.

“That is why the same security agencies have never arrested any of the so called attackers”, they added.

The pro-Biafra group argued that they are civilized and disciplined individuals who do not behave like thugs

They accused politicians of recruiting criminals and hoodlums “to attack election materials and blame it on them.”

The statement, however, said that no amount of sponsored blackmail against IPOB would stop the agitation for Biafra restoration, adding that it will rather fuel the agitation.
