The Mazi Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has exonerated itself of the activities of the Ndubuisi Igwekala alias Agu Biafra-led IPOB Youth Wing, insisting, “there is no unit or department called IPOB Youth Wing in IPOB structure.”
In a statement issued by its Director of Media Publicity, Comrade Emma Powerful, at the weekend, IPOB said, “The so called IPOB Youth Wing is another criminal group paid to blackmail IPOB.
“We want the public and the good people of Biafra to know that there is no unit or department called IPOB Youth Wing in IPOB Structure.
“This man and his co-conspirators may have been contracted by our enemies to form another unknown gunmen group in the name of IPOB to demonize IPOB.
“The man Mazi Ndubuisi Igwekala, the self-claimed IPOB youth president, should tell the public who created and appointed him as IPOB Youth President,” IPOB stated.
It explained that Ndubuisi Igwekala alias Agu Biafra was a former MASSOB member sacked by the leadership of the group because of his criminal activities in MASSOB.
IPOB warned: “If Agu Biafra thinks he can use the hallowed name of IPOB to continue his criminal activities, then he will go down with his evil agenda. Anybody who knows this criminal should advise him to stay away from his evil agenda because if IPOB catches him, he will have himself to blame.”
“IPOB is IPOB with no attachment of any sort. Either you’re IPOB or you are not. Anybody impersonating IPOB with whatever name is a traitor and must be treated as such.
“Mazi Ndubuisi Igwekala is about to create another criminal gang in the South East region. The more we try to stop one criminal group impersonating IPOB and ESN, the more our enemies are sponsoring other criminal groups to use ESN and IPOB names to perpetrate crimes to blackmail IPOB,” it stated.
It further stated, “IPOB is a peaceful movement seeking independence from the Nigeria State. We mean business, and many have paid with their lives for the struggle. We are not like those fighting for their stomach. (stomach freedom fighters)
“Mazi Ndubuisi Igwekala and his co-conspirators in the fake IPOB Youth Wing should cease and desist from this activity, or they will say, “had we known.”
