The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Sunday, denied claims that its leader, Nnamdi Kanu authorized the killings of 10 girls for rituals and power and buried Ikonso with 2,000 human heads.
Spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful was reacting to allegations by a captured self-acclaimed Commander of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, Emeoyiri Uzorma Benjamin.
Benjamin also known as Onye Army, had alleged that Kanu ordered the ESN Commanders to bury their overall commander, popularly known as Ikonso, with 2,000 heads.
Reacting to the allegation, Powerful described Onye army’s claims as “fallacious.”
Powerful, in a statement he issued, declared that Onye Army was not a member o ESN, stressing that he was a mole planted by the Nigerian government.
Powerful said, “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indomitable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the fallacious claims by one man who claimed to be an Eastern Security Network ESN Commander, and claiming that our Leader commanded him to kill security agents.
“He also shamelessly claimed that 10 girls were killed to prepare charms to fortify him which is false statements forced by DSS to make such unfounded statements against ESN, IPOB and our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The so-called Onyearmy said he joined ESN in 2019 while ESN was established in December 12th 2020 it exposed them that they coached him to be talking rubbish statements against ESN, IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu.
“We want to make it clear that the purported ESN Commander is not known to us and we discovered that he is a mole planted by the Government and security agencies into ESN. We know our commanders and they know us. The so called man must be one of the criminals recruited by the Department of State Services to infiltrate ESN but our gallant men were at alert and smarter than the DSS.”
IPOB accused Onye Army of being a saboteur planted by the Department of State Services, DSS, to assassinate Ikonso.
“It is obvious that the so-called ESN Commander and his likes were the saboteurs planted by DSS to assassinate our gallant Ikonso. After killing Ikonso, they are now trying to concoct a tale to implicate our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“We are not surprised that Nigeria took back their mole after the death of Ikonso the unit commander whom the so called Onyearmy spied over before his death. This Onyearmy was nowhere to be seen after the death of Ikonso, where did he get the information that our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu gave the order for 2000 heads to bury Ikonso because he was not in the camp again from that day he gave Ikonso out to Nigeria security service, and can he provide parents of those thirteen virgins he confessed to during his interrogation?.
The Nigerian security agencies must stop using fake news and propaganda to demoralize IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu and ESN because we don’t kill who are not terrorists,” he said.
