The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied that it was involved in the recent attack on Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano.
KanyiDaily had reported how unknown gunmen attacked Governor Willie Obiano‘s convoy at the campaign rally of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Ihiala.
In a statement from its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB condemned the attack which it claimed was due to the forthcoming November 6 governorship election in Anambra State.
The group alleged that those Governor Obiano accused of masterminding the killings in Anambra were responsible for the attack.
According to IPOB, the South-East Governors that Obiano said he would not sit at table with to discuss insecurity in his state should held accountable for the senseless killings in Anambra.
IPOB also warned “some brainwashed fellows” against linking it with the killings, insisting that the group did not come to kill but to save, restore and rebuild.
We Didn’t Attack Governor Willie Obiano In Anambra – IPOB
The statement reads: “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indefatigable leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU, strongly condemn the spate of senseless attacks on innocent people in South-East by politically-recruited hoodlums masquerading as unknown gunmen.
“It is quite unfortunate that some unpatriotic and unscrupulous elements who are intimidating their fellow politicians because of the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State will resort to bloodletting for power. More annoying is the fact that after their atrocities, some brainwashed fellows will be pointing accusing fingers at IPOB.
“We condemn the attack on Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State yesterday. Contrary to allegations by our enemies, IPOB has no hand in the said attack. It is now becoming more obvious that those Governor Obiano accused of masterminding the killings in his state are angry with him for exposing them.
“The South-East governors that Obiano said he would not sit at the table with to discuss insecurity in his state should be made to explain all they know about the senseless killings in Anambra State.
“We pity those who are chasing after shadow, pointing accusing fingers at IPOB. Such fellows are ignorant of what politicians are capable of doing because of power.
“Igbo politicians were not like this before but desperation for power and determination by Fulani cabal to replicate what happened in Imo State in Anambra State are the reason for this madness. Their ultimate goal is to demonise IPOB.
“Our people must ‘shine’ their eyes because the Fulani have planted their terrorists in our territory to eliminate high profile Biafrans. Those self-acclaimed Igbo elites, Ohanaeze leaders, traditional rulers and religious leaders must look inward to fish out these FULANI-sponsored agents of death.
“They should stop linking IPOB with these killings because IPOB did not come to kill but to save, restore and rebuild.”
