The Mazi Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said that the military never invaded the ESN camp in Ohafia, Abia State.
It also denied that ESN operatives had any camp in Amangwu Ohafia Local Government Area.
In a statement issued by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, the IPOB said that the aligation was concocted and sponsored by the Nigeria Military to blackmail the pro-Biafra agitators.
“We have said it before now that ESN operatives do not have any camp in Amangwu Ohafia LGA. All the criminal camps that Nigeria Army has claimed to have invaded are not ESN camps. ESN camps are secured and sacred territories.

“ESN does not indulge in kidnapping and collecting of ramson from innocent citizens who eventually lead military to those camps.
“The Nigeria security agencies particularly the Military, Police, and DSS agents must stop their continuous blackmail and demonization of IPOB and ESN operatives for wanting Biafra Independence. The world and even the Nigeria government know that we are innocent in all their allegations,” IPOB said.
Besides, it advised the Nigeria media do investigative journalism and not allow government and their security agents to use and influence them against IPOB.
“Our only crime against the Nigeria State is our quest and desire to be free from a nation that hates our people,” it said.
