IPOB denies attacks on Imo police headquarters, correctional centre

Following the attacks on Imo Police Headquarters and Correctional Centre on Monday where over 2,000 inmates were freed, the proscribed Indigenious People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied responsibility.

This was contained in a statement released on Monday by the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful.

According to the proscribed group, the attacks were not carried out by operatives of Eastern Security Network (ESN).

He said: “The attention of IPOB has been drawn again to the fallacious and fabricated news that IPOB and ESN are involved in the attack of prison and police headquarters in Owerri Imo State.

“IPOB and ESN are known groups not unknown gunmen. ESN is in the bush chasing Fulani terrorists, why linking IPOB and ESN to this attack. IPOB and ESN were not involved in the attack in Owerri Imo State. and the recent attack on Onitsha Owerri road at Ukwuorji junction. It is not our mandate to attack security personnel or prison facilities.

“The Nigeria Government and her compromised media outfits should stop linking IPOB and ESN to the multiple attacks going on in Nigeria now. IPOB was formed on principle of peace and we are still in it. Unknown gunmen is a different people which we don’t know them and they not IPOB or ESN security outfit.”

Meanwhile, soldiers have taken over the Okigwe roundabout and road leading to the Correctional Centre diverting traffic flow.
