In a swift reaction, IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful warned Nigeria government and security agencies to stop hunting IPOB.

“We are warning Nigeria government and her security agencies to allow IPOB because we are peaceful in all our activities since the formation of this noble movement to liberate our people.

“Nigeria security operatives are deriving joy in arresting and slaughtering of IPOB family members since 2015 while their brothers terrorists herdsmen and their Boko Haram counterpart are busy causing mayhem throughout Nigeria without security officers struggle to stop them.

“We are calling Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State to instruct his country security to release our members before it is late. Nigeria government and her army of terrorists have been looking for our trouble and they must get it when we are ready. At the appropriate time they will regret their actions against IPOB members,” he said.

KanyiDaily recalls that three months ago, police arrested nine suspected IPOB members and recovered 13 stolen police service rifles from them in Delta State.
