The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB yesterday denied ever having any camp at Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State, or anywhere criminals are harboured.

IPOB  stated that it is neither a militant nor a criminal group and does not need any camp anywhere to achieve its aim.

IPOB rather alleged that the Nigerian security agencies are using the hatred they have for the people of Biafra particularly, IPOB and ESN members to unleash cruelty on the people living at Ihiala community where they suspect criminals are taking refuge.

A statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, entitled, IPOB and ESN, have no camps in Ihiala or anywhere criminals are harboured” said that the people being linked with IPOB  are also being hunted by IPOB.

IPOB statement read: “We, the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, under the command and leadership of our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to reiterate that IPOB and ESN operatives have no camp at Lilu in Ihiala Local Area of Anambra State.

“We are not militants and criminals and don’t need any camp in Ihiala LGA. We are identifiable and we are all over Biafra land and IPOB branches in the Diaspora.

“Nigerian security agencies are using the hatred they have for the people of Biafra particularly IPOB and ESN members to unleash cruelty on the people living in these communities where they suspect that criminals are taking refuge.

“If criminals take refuge in any community in Biafra land, that doesn’t make them IPOB members or ESN operatives. We have also not said there are no more criminal gangs in Biafra land. They exist just like every other country even in the advanced western nations.

“However, we won’t accept the tagging of every criminal element found in Biafra  as IPOB members or ESN operatives.”
