The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to rumors that it captured Eastern Security Network commanders.
IPOB described as concocted lies the claim by the Nigeria police of purportedly apprehending four Eastern Security Network (ESN) commanders at Ogbaru in Anambra State.
While describing the report as pathetic and fake, Powerful appealed to the public to disregard it as there were no ESN commanders arrested anywhere in Anambra State.
“It is pathetic that the compromised Nigeria security agents will always delude themselves by fake claims of ESN Commanders’ arrest. Where was the arrest made? And what are the identities of those commanders arrested? IPOB wishes to tell the public to ignore the professional lying security agencies as there were no ESN commanders or operatives arrested anywhere in Ogbaru.
“As usual, the terrorists in uniforms may have arrested innocent people and called them ESN operatives so that they would extort thousands of Naira from their victims’ relatives as bail money.
“On the other hand, they may have arrested criminals impersonating ESN. Nigeria Security Forces regularly claiming that they have arrested ESN Operatives is childish. ESN Operatives are armed and can’t be preyed on like unarmed civilians that Nigeria Security preys on anyhow. All ESN Commanders and Operatives are intact.
“Nigeria compromised security team at Ogbaru must come clean and tell the world who carried out attack on the USA embassy staff convoy instead of playing ostrich on such an international embarrassing attack.
“The security crisis going on at Ogbaru is a rivalry between oil bunkering cartels, which Nigeria government, Nigeria security agencies (Navy, Army, DSS, and Police) are part of. It has been an ongoing war between the cartels before the attack on US embassy staff convoy. That’s why Nigeria Police refused to carry out any investigation into the attacks. Instead, they go about arresting people and burning IPOB members’ and sympathisers’ homes at Ogbaru.”
