The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said it has instructed its counsel to immediately institute a lawsuit against the Anambra State police command for parading a suspected criminals with Biafra insignia that suggested that they were members of the group.
A press release signed by the media and publicity secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, which was made available to DAILY POST in Awka stated that the act was purely meant to rubbish all that the secessionist group stood for.
Recall that the Anambra police commissioner, Mr Garba Umar, while parading suspected criminals at the state police command on Thursday had stated that two of the suspects; Peter Onyebuchi and Ugwuokpe Nnaemeka had been arrested with arms and ammunition, including IPOB headgear, flag and muffler.
But Powerful in the press release said it was purely a stage manage act by the police meant to tarnish the name of the organisation and portray its members as criminals.
“As a necessary precaution, we have instructed the chambers of Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor our lawyers, to commence legal action against Anambra State Police Command for this pathetic attempt to impugn the integrity of IPOB.
“It is unfortunate that the Nigerian police command in Awka, Anambra State will stage manage a crime scene simply because they have lost the argument on self determination and are seeking for ways to label IPOB as a violent organisation to justify their murderous tendencies.
“Both the police and army are in possession of the oath every IPOB family member must take before they are admitted into IPOB. They should refer to it and stop disgracing themselves before the world.
“Despite the fact that IPOB congregate in their millions during rallies, has it ever been reported that any person or persons lost their personal belongings? The answer is no, because IPOB family members cannot even steal a common purse or wallet, talkless of engaging in armed robbery.
The group said it is not unaware of the fact that Nigeria security operatives were actively recruiting non Biafrans with IPOB paraphernalia to be used to wreak havoc on unsuspecting citizens with the view to tarnish the clean image of IPOB.
It said only gullible Nigerians can be deceived with such kindergarten antics as people are more reasonable and wiser now and cannot be deceived so easily by such lies by the police.
