The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has asked the police to desist from dragging the name of its Eastern Security Network (ESN) into atrocities being committed in the southeastern part of Nigeria.
The group said the police continuing to do so would not help the government but rather would make it regret indulging in such act.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, IPOB maintained that ESN had no camp in Enugu Ezike and anywhere around that area.
The statement reads: “We wish to state clearly to Enugu State Police Commissioner and their personnel that ESN has no camp in Enugu Ezike and anywhere around that area.
‘Nigeria Police should stop dragging IPOB into something we know nothing about because of their unwarranted hatred against IPOB members and ESN Operatives.
“The people in the said camp must be those the Government recruited thinking they will demonise and destroy IPOB-ESN. The dogs they recruited has started chasing them and will pursue them till they crumbled and become exhausted.
“ESN under IPOB-DOS don’t go after those who have no problem with us or our people. We remain a peaceful movement seeking freedom from Nigeria State and can only go after murderous fulani terrorists in our bushes.
“Pursuing Police and other Security Agents operating in Enugu State or Biafraland is not our problem because we are fully committed to the restoration of Biafra freedom and independence.
“The criminals the government created to demonise IPOB movement worldwide have come against them. They will be pursuing their sponsors to their early graves.
“The Police should stop deceiving the public because what they demanded from the market is what is what they got. IPOB is only focused on Biafra freedom and not compromised Nigeria Security Agents.
“Continous linking of IPOB on their own sponsored atrocities in the East will not help the government, instead they will regret why they indulged in such hiring and sponsoring of the criminal gangs in the East.
“For the love of our people, the IPOB leadership through ESN has helped to clean some of the mess the Nigeria Government sponsored crimininal have created.
“Nevertheless, the only solution to stopping these crimininal gangs is for the Government and Governors in the East to stop sponsoring cult gangs to demonize IPOB because they can’t stop IPOB in this Divine mandate to restore Biafra.”
