The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned the killings of two monarchs in Imo State and denied being behind the attack.
Instead, it said hoodlums being sponsored by politicians in the state were behind the attack.
IPOB said it is worrisome that killings and other criminal acts perpetrated in the South East were blamed on its security arm Eastern Security network (ESN).
The secessionist group said all these in a statement by Emma Powerful, IPOB Director of Media and Publicity on Thursday.
“We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu condemns the continuous murder of our people recently in Okwudo Orlu LGA of Imo State especially the two traditional rulers in this community because Hope Uzodimma warned Imo State traditional rulers not hold a meeting of any kind in the state”, the statement read.
“It’s unfortunate that uninformed and gullible citizens in Imo state will tomorrow begin to blame these killings to IPOB.
“IPOB has no issue with these dead Ezes because they are the custodians of our land,”Powerful said.
