The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied masterminding Monday’s attacks on the Owerri Correctional Centre and the Imo State Police Command Headquarters.
IPOB’s Spokesperson, Mr Emma Powerful in a statement issued on Monday, April 5, 2021, said it was fallacious to link IPOB and the Operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) to the attack.
According to the statement, ESN operatives were in the bushes chasing Fulani terrorists and could not have attacked the facilities.
The statement further emphasized that IPOB and ESN are known groups and not faceless Gunmen.
Mr Emma also said it is not the mandate of IPOB or ESN to attack Security Personnel or Prison facilities.
