We are Not Responsible for Owerri Prison Break – IPOB

by on April 5, 2021

The leadership of the Indigenious People of Biafra, IPOB, has denied being responsible for Monday’s attacks on Imo Police Headquarters and Correctional Centre where over 1,900 inmates were freed.

Emma Powerful, the group’s Media and Publicity head said 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.”
