The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has debunked the report that it is behind the killing of Dr Chike Akunyili, husband of Dora Akunyii, and others in Anambra State.
The group spokesperson Comrade Emma Powerful made this known in an interview with Tribune Online on Wednesday.
According to Powerful, IPOB are not unknown gunmen and regrets why people with evil agendas for the people of Biafra still link IPOB to the murderous group.
Powerful also added that IPOB has no intention of fomenting trouble and warned those linking them to unknown gunmen to desist from such allegations.
“Dora Akunyili’s husband is not our problem and cannot be. Let Anambra people and Biafrans know that we have no business with Mazi Chike Akunyili.
“Those who poisoned his wife are still after the family because they have a mission to finish the family.
“It is unfortunate that those who planned and poison late Dora Akunyili would link IPOB on this man’s death. It is important to note that IPOB are not unknown gunmen.
“We have disassociated ourselves from this group unknown gunmen but people with evil agenda to the people of Biafra are still linking IPOB to this murderous group. IPOB doesn’t know anything about Dora Akunyili’s husband because we are not unknown gunmen.
“ESN was set up to protect and secure our mothers and sisters to go to the farms. Those doing this are trying to do it so our people will support IPOB. But Biafrans are wiser and know what traitors are doing. We want to make it clear to them that IPOB is not behind the killing going on in Anambra State. It is politicians killing people in the state.
“IPOB has no intention of fomenting trouble in our land. Please, we beg those linking us into this madness to desist because they will regret their actions soon. “
