The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State to call the Nigerian military and its “secret Ebubeagu Security Outfit” to order or have the group to contend with.
IPOB said this on Friday in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, saying that Governor Soludo’s security outfit members had turned into kidnappers. The group alleged that the governor created a secret security outfit which had been attacking and killing innocent people while blaming it on faceless criminals. IPOB noted that it is aware that the governor is ignorant of the heinous crimes committed in the state by the security outfit, adding that the handlers of the security outfit had turned them into another set of criminals.
IPOB said, “The attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been drawn to the random killing of innocent people especially the youths of Anambra State by Nigeria Army and the secret security outfit created by Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State.
“The unfortunate thing is that Prof. Soludo is claiming ignorance of the dirty job committed by these criminal security outfit members, as innocent lives are being wasted in Anambra State.
“IPOB has no problem with anyone creating a Security outfit to secure the land so long as the Security outfit is not after the innocent Biafrans. It is important that Soludo calls those secret security outfit members and their handlers and Military Commander to order because they have turned to kidnappers who kidnap innocent citizens in the name of arrest and turn around to request huge amounts from their victims before they are released and those unable to pay are wasted.
“Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo must look into numerous attacks, kidnapping and killing of innocent people in Anambra State committed by these Security outfits.
“Example of such killings was reckless killing of one innocent youth at Abatete on the suspicion that he was an IPOB member by trigger happy terrorist soldier on this security outfit on the mere suspicion of being an IPOB member.
“Soludo created a secret security militia thinking that we will not know and they are now calling themselves Ebubeagu security militia. Everybody in the state of Anambra State can see how these criminal Security outfit are attacking and killing innocent people while blaming it on faceless criminals.
“These hoodlums called themselves Soludo security are Ebubeagu in disguise. Their modus operandi is the same with that of Ebubeagu Imo State governor, Hope Uzodinma.
“Mr. Governor, you must call the Nigerian military and your Ebubeagu security outfits who murder people at random to order. Otherwise, we will use our strategy to stop their madness and mindless attacks and killing of our people.
“Prof. Soludo you will have IPOB’s support in stopping criminals terrorizing Anambra State and we are pursuing them too but when innocent citizens are targeted by those criminals in the security outfit; you will have IPOB to contend with.
“If Professor Soludo allows these people both in military and his Ebubeagu in disguise to continue their kidnapping and murderous activities in their “aroban style” while blaming faceless criminals in Anambra State again, we will shock them by exposing the every hidden crime they committed before now in the state.”
