IPOB to Soludo: Stop Deploying Ebubeagu Militia Against State Residents

The Indigenous People of Biafra have requested Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, to stop deploying Ebubeagu militia, including vigilantes, against innocent state residents.

At the same time, the pro-Biafran organisation is adamant that Soludo surreptitiously established Ebubeagu in Anambra, dubbed its members vigilantes, and used it to kill IPOB members.

The group made these assertions on Wednesday in a statement by Emma Powerful, its media and publicity secretary.

The group warned the governor to stop using the militia in profiling Biafrans and eliminating them merely because they have artwork or tattoos on their bodies, saying that the true intention of the governor through Ebubeagu had been revealed. The group also stated that the governor should be held accountable for whatever occurred in the state.

The statement read in part, “Our attention has 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 by the state governor.

“Biafrans should recollect that IPOB had informed them and the general public that Soludo had secretly set up the Ebubeagu security outfit to begin a covert elimination of IPOB members. It is clear that the governor wants to throw the peaceful state of Anambra into flames, and nobody should blame IPOB when that happens because we contributed more than 80 per cent of the peaceful environment that our people are seeing in Anambra today.

“The atrocities of this evil security outfit are very pronounced in Nnewi, Idemili South and North, including other important towns and communities in Anambra State.

“We advise Soludo to ask his other counterparts in the South-East, especially Imo and Ebonyi states, what is happening in their states because they refused to heed the genuine advice proffered to them by IPOB against setting up this Ebubeagu security outfit.

“The Eastern Security Network must be prepared for these criminals created by Soludo. They are abducting and killing many of us, and we must not give anyone any opportunity or room to use Biafraland and the lives of Biafran to further their political ambition and curry favour from the Fulani caliphate. We are not only in charge, but we must be seen to take charge without looking backwards.

“We advise the governor to caution those in charge of his militia groups to stop harassing IPOB members or those sympathetic to them because IPOB is not responsible for criminalities in Anambra State.

“We do not compromise regarding our agitation for freedom and the wellbeing and security of Biafrans. We shall definitely act to protect our people and our land from demonstrating to the global community that IPOB is not happy in respect of the numerous kidnappings and killings of IPOB members in the State.
