The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has claimed that Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has established Ebubeagu militia to eliminate their members.
IPOB media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, made this claim in a statement issued on Wednesday in Awka, Anambra State.
The group, however, promised to confront his militia, using the militant wing of their organisation, Eastern Security Network (ESN).
He said, “We have been drawn to the reckless and unjustifiable murder of innocent citizens of Biafra in Anambra State by the secret militia and Ebubeagu security outfit created in Anambra State by Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo.
“IPOB wants to bring to the knowledge of Biafrans the criminal activities of Soludo’s militia and Ebubeagu security outfit in Anambra State. Soludo had secretly set up the Ebubeagu security outfit simply to begin a covert elimination of IPOB members, now, it is clear that the governor wants to turn the peaceful state of Anambra into flame.
“Soludo must be held responsible for whatever happens in Anambra State going forward if he continues to use his Ebubeagu militia to be profiling Biafrans and eliminating them because they have paintings or tattoo on their body.”
