IPOB PRESS RELEASE
We, the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)ably led by the great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU distance ourself from the arrested individual called Ejima that was televised by the Nigeria media and those he mentioned like Number 1 and Temple are vicious criminals who were recruited by Imo State Government to blackmail IPOB and ESN in the South East Region.
For record purposes, Ejima is never an ESN commander rather he is among those Orlu youths using the name of ESN to carry out some intimidation and harassment of their own people and he was warmed several times and was asked to undergo ESN training and stop working in the name of ESN , also he was asked that he must undertake an oath to be discipline and law abiding volunteers and he must not engage in criminality , kidnapping or other illegal activities in the name of ESN which he refused to take the oath till his present ordeal .
Furthermore , People should recall that IPOB leadership through Mazi Chinasa Nworu in one of his broadcast earlier this year mentioned the names of these criminals on Radio Biafra as those terrorising the Oru East and Oru West LGA of Imo State. Chinasa Nworu specifically said that they are criminals and not working for IPOB nor ESN. Also IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful in one of his previous press releases warned these criminals to stop their attrocities and refrain from impersonating IPOB and ESN.
Ejima who’s real names are Okechukwu Nlebedum is Governor Hope Uzodinma's blood relative from his mothers side according to Ejima and he knew Hope Uzodinma and Hope knew the activities of Ejima and his twin brother whom they paraded together. Both of them that were paraded have been working With Hope Uzodinma from the time Hope Uzodinma was a senator till they fell out after he became the Governor .
Hope Uzodinma made many promises to Ejima through the Njaba LGA chairman , Hon Vincent they offered cash and amnesty in other to reconcile with Ejima and to work with his government , he recruited him and his gang to continue impersonating IPOB and ESN for blackmail and propaganda. These guys are working with Government as double Agents and we refer to them as infiltrators.
Let's analysis vital portion of Ejima's public confession. When he was asked by the Journalists about the location of their camp, he said " ...at the back of police station..." Important Question: Can ESN under IPOB operate a camp at the back of Nigeria Police Station without been invaded by same Police who always claim of raiding ESN camps? The camp in question behind the police station is Hope Uzodinma's fake ESN camp where Ejima is their commander.
They thought that the stage is now right to stage-manage a coordinated blackmail against Chinasa Nworu, ESN, IPOB and infact MNK using Ejima. But we will continue to expose their lies and blackmail.
IPOB don't work with criminals.
IPOB don't support evil activities like kidnapping, killing and snatching of cars. IPOB is here to protect our people not to make life difficult for them.
Ejima and his gang will face the consequences of the crime they committed against innocent citizens (if Government will prosecute him because he is working with them against ESN as a revenge).
Let it be on record that IPOB and ESN are innocent. The so called Ejima and his gang are not ESN Operatives nor IPOB volunteers.
We challenge the Nigeria Police and Imo State to charge the Ejima to an open court where lawyers can ask him questions.
Every Nigeria Government sponsored media attacks against IPOB and ESN will fail because Elohim is behind us. All the coordinated media attacks and blackmail is because IPOB and ESN is the last line of defense against Fulanization agenda of the Biafra Territory.
COMRADE EMMA POWERFUL MEDIA AND PUBLICITY SECRETARY FOR IPOB.
