The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned the mass arrest and tagging of Biafra youths as members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) by the Security agencies in Ebonyi State.
IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful gave the charge in a statement he made available to newsmen in Abakaliki on Friday.
According to him, the indiscriminate arrest of the youths particularly in Ebia Unuhu Community and tagging them ESN operatives and IPOB members is just to kill them in retaliation of the mob action by youths of the area against a hotel in Abakaliki.
He then urged them to stop killing Biafran youths especially Igbo extraction branding them ESN and IPOB.
The statement reads in part “We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), strongly condemn the action of the Nigeria security operatives embarking on mass and indiscriminate arrests of Biafran youths in Ebonyi State particularly in Ebia Unuhu community, and tagging them Eastern Security Network (ESN) operatives and IPOB members to kill them. This evil agenda was in retaliation for the mob action by youths against one Bosco hotel in Abakaliki suspected to be involved in some unwholesome activities.”
“The owner of the Bosco Hotel hails from Ebia Unuhu. His community people accused him of masterminding the killing of one man and decided to burn down his hotel. Now the mob has been tagged ESN and IPOB members. The security agencies went to his community to do random arrests branding the arrested victims ESN and IPOB members.
“The attitude of the Nigeria security agencies with the collaboration of traitors in Biafra land to demonise IPOB and ESN and unleash terror on innocent Biafra youths must stop. Fulani bandits and terrorists ravage the North and Northern youths are not harassed or even arrested for the atrocities of these killers but anytime there is any issue in Biafraland, innocent Biafran youths are made to pay for what they know nothing about. It’s wickedness taken too far.
“Nigeria should stop killing Biafran youths especially of Igbo extraction branding them ESN and IPOB. This secret genocide must stop.”
“Well, we understand their desperation. They know Biafra is about to be fully restored, that is why they want to kill as many youths as they can before we leave Nigeria but our God will frustrate them. World leaders know IPOB and ESN are not terrorists. The music will soon play to our delight.”
“Nigeria security agencies created a terrorist group which they use to carry out terrorist activities in Biafra land in their desperation to implicate IPOB and ESN,” he added.
