The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has denied involvement in the ongoing insecurity in the South-East.
On Thursday, unknown gunmen numbering about 12, stormed the Ihitte Uboma local government area in Imo State and shot dead a staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Okorie Anthony, at the ongoing Continuous Voters Registration Exercise, CVR.
These masked men have been terrorizing the region for many years now. Irked with the incessant killings, IPOB, through its spokesperson, Emma Powerful vowed to expose those behind the dastardly act.
In a statement obtained by newsmen, Emma stated that IPOB members were not the ones that attacked INEC staff in Imo and equally disassociated the group from the rumor making the rounds that IPOB members are the ‘Unknown Gunmen’, that have been killing people.
