The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Sunday said it has nothing to do with the attack on a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo.
The group, in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said it is a peaceful group seeking the restoration of Biafra, adding that its Eastern Security Network (ESN) does not involve in evil.
“IPOB or ESN has no issue with Soludo even those that IPOB had issues with have not been attacked, why are people Linking ESN and IPOB into this evil attack to Soludo? IPOB, ESN has nothing with Soludo.
“IPOB is a peaceful movement seeking for the total restoration of Biafra and ESN is a vigilante group set up to protect our bushes and forests for the safety of our mothers, wives and sisters from the Fulani terrorists rape and killings. Those traitors linking ESN to this ugly and evil activity will suffer.
“ESN does not involve in any evil activity. Soludo must look around and find out that his political opponents are on his neck, not ESN or IPOB.
“Again, IPOB and ESN do not indulge in kidnapping or killing people we suppose to protect. We are confident to provide adequate security for our people not to kill or kidnap them.
“We are not unknown gunmen, IPOB and ESN are known groups ready to fight for our upcoming kingdom”, the statement read.
