The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has raised the alarm, accusing the Nigerian Army and the Imo State security outfit, Ebubeagu, of mass killing of citizens and burning of their houses in the state.

In a statement issured by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB also condemned what it described as the ongoing senseless killings and destruction of properties by the government’s agencies.

While advising the media to stop reporting the state government’s “lies” against its citizens, the IPOB insisted that Nigeria joint security forces especially the Army and police neither clashed with unknown gunmen, ESN nor civilians in Imo State.

“Instead, Nigeria soldiers invaded Orlu and Obowo councils and environs and burnt 17 innocent citizens alive; and destroyed properties.

“Our people are under sever attack and torture anywhere they are seen. We are dying every day and night the world looked the other way,” the group lamented.

IPOB also said that its members were not terrorists, stressing, “IPOB is present in over 100 countries and their members are not treated as criminals in any of those countries except in the Fulani-controlled Nigeria.

“We are calling on the international community, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch organisation, Intersocity group and other reputable human rights organisations across the globe to take note and prevail on Nigeria  government and its security agencies to leave Biafra territory.

“Terrorists have continued to kill innocent Nigerians in the North but no security agency has ever moved into those theaters of war to kill innocent citizens? Is it because we are Biafrans? There is genocide going on now in Biafra land by Nigeria security agencies.” IPOB said.
