...distances self from killing native doctor in Imo

Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has distanced itself from the statement credited to the police alleging that the group and its security outfit; Eastern Security Network (ESN) killed a native doctor in Awommama in Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State.

In a statement from the Media and Publicity Secretary Emma Powerful, IPOB described the report as ridiculous, warning against associating the group with such deity.

The group also revealed that the camps reportedly destroyed by security agents were not ESN camps, noting that the claims were to create the wrong impression of their hard-working disposition.

The statement read in part: “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been drawn to the concocted and ridiculous statement from Nigeria police that IPOB and ESN killed a native doctor preparing charms for them in Awommama Oru East LGA of Imo State, and burnt his house.

“Let us reiterate once again that neither ESN nor IPOB kills people since its formation by our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We also do not have any native doctor as we do not believe in fetish acts. Our trust has always been in the Almighty God, Chukwu Okike Abiama.

“It is ridiculous for the Federal Government to associate IPOB or ESN with their moon tale narrative of a native doctor and charms. Assuming but not conceding to the laughable tale by the Nigeria police, does it make any sense that we will turn around to kill the same native doctor allegedly preparing charms for us?

“The security agents should stop blackmailing themselves thinking they are doing so against IPOB and ESN. They should stop killing and burning the houses of people and blame their wickedness on IPOB and Eastern Security Network. We do not kill the same people we are sacrificing so much to liberate. Spilling of blood is not part of our mandate.

“We equally want to put it on record that the purported camps destroyed by security agents are not ESN camps. The false claims were to create the wrong impression that they are working hard and probably collect more money from their government.

“The fact remains that ESN camps cannot be infiltrated or combed by the Nigerian security agents. They are only out for propaganda to deceive the gullible into thinking that ESN is vulnerable, they are not.

“The public must disregard this junk news being dished out by the Nigeria police and Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma about the beheading of a native doctor from Imo State by IPOB and ESN.

“We know nothing about the purported incident. This is another lie concocted to further tarnish our image and set us against our people.

“Nigerians must note that security agents are seriously on the losing side of the game and they have resorted to using media propaganda to demoralise people and support what they are doing. But IPOB must not allow them. We must always be alert to counter every lie from them."
