‘Their quest to blackmail IPOB globally has led them into assassinating innocent people in Biafra Land’

The Mazi Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned the attack on the U.S. Embassy convoy in Anambra State, which led to the death of some officials.
It said that though the White House confirmed that no U.S. citizen was a victim of the attack, “we condole with the families of the victims and request that the masterminders and the perpetrators were brought to book.”
In a statement issued by Comrade Emma Powerful, the Media and Publicity secretary, IPOB denied involvement in the attack, alleging that its accusers were the real masterminds.
“Their quest to blackmail IPOB globally has led them into assassinating innocent people in Biafra Land. For instance, they, the government agents, assassinated Alhaji Gulak in Owerri, and they assassinated Army couple in an undisclosed location in Biafra.

“They assassinated Dr. Akunyili in Anambra (late Dora Akunyili’s husband). In all these and many more of the state sponsored murder cases, IPOB was accused, and till date Police never conducted an investigation on any of them.
“If not for the Intel from IPOB M-Branch on the plans to assassinate ex-British High Commissioner, Catriona Laing, in 2022 and the warning from IPOB leadership for her not to visit South East, they would have assassinated her too,” IPOB stated.
It also alleged that the recent attack on the U.S. Embassy convoy was likely another state-sponsored to discredit the IPOB movement and to make South East more unsafe for investors to continue coming to Biafra.
IPOB, however, said that the government officials’ quest to blackmail IPOB globally led them into assassinating innocent people in Biafra Land. email@example.com
