Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, Senate minority leader,  has  said that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and other pro-Biafran agitators were not responsible for the attacks on police facilities and killing of security operatives in the Southeast.
 

Abaribe told The Nation noted the attacks were being carried out by those “fifth columnists imported into Igboland”  to destabilize it.

Mohammed Adamu and other security agents had fingered IPOB as the culprit in the attacks but the separatists group has repeatedly denied it insisting that protection of lives and property of southeasterners remained its property.
 
This explains why Abaribe after delivering a keynote address at the Nigeria Bar Association Owerri Branch 2021 Law Week, said the IPOB was not responsible for the attacks.


He added those sponsoring the violence in the region were only interested in making Igboland ungovernable.

The senator, who represents Abia South Senatorial District, said: “Anybody, who is seeing all these problems in southeast as coming from the IPOB, anyone trying to pin the insecurity situation in southeast to IPOB or MASSOB is making a mistake. We do not think so.

“Those of us from the southeast here know that this is nothing but fifth columnists imported into Igboland to destabilize Igboland. This is because Igboland is the safest place that we had in this country.

“All they want to do is to cause a confusion and make this place ungovernable so that they can go out and say there is terrorism here.

“We are not terrorists. The ethos of the Igbo man is very simple: live and let live. We build; we don’t destroy. We never kill because we take life very precious.

“So, anyone telling you all these, it’s people who come from elsewhere trying to destabilize Igboland. But, it will never happen”. – The Nation.
