Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) has debunked reports that it was involved in the burning of offices belonging to the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) in the South East regions.

As the 2023 general elections approach, several offices belonging to INEC have been attacked by persons alleged to be members of the secessionist group.

However in a statement released by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, the IPOB said the allegations were meant to disparage and blackmail the group. Powerful also denied allegations about the purported bomb factory owned by the group and killing of politicians in the South East.

He claimed they were political moves aimed at ruining Peter Obi’s chances in the 2023 presidential election. He also dismissed claims that members of the group were responsible for attacks on political rallies in the South East region.

Read the statement below...

“We know that they want to rig the elections in the South East against Peter Obi and blame it on IPOB and ESN.  They burn markets and different properties of our people and blame it on IPOB. They declared a five-day ignored sit-at-home and killed our people and even killed a  pregnant mother using  IPOB and ESN identity.

All these activities were sponsored by Fulani terrorists and that’s why there haven’t been any arrest or prosecution of the perpetrators. They target to blackmail IPOB locally and internationally. These criminals were groomed to ensure they demonise IPOB and ESN.

 We are also not responsible for any attacks on their political rallies or destruction of political paraphernalia. These criminals and cultists recruited by the Federal Government and its compromised security agencies have caused a lot of harm to our people and our land. We promise that they will regret their actions in due time.

As the 2023 election is fast approaching, anybody or group attacking political campaigns or destroying political materials in Biafraland should not be associated with IPOB. Those persons should be treated as  common criminals,
” he said.
