The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has urged the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to come clean of reports that they are perpetrating crimes against Igbos in their own Igboland and walking away freely with it.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo intimated that the security arm of the IPOB, the Eastern Security Network, ESN, should be disbanded to bring about peace in Igboland since the killings and attacks have escalated in recent times.
Ohanaeze suggested to IPOB that they should allow their members to sign up for the official security outfit of the South East, the Ebubeagu.
National Leader of the Ohanaeze Youth wing, Jones Onwuasonya, made his submission in Owerri.
Ohanaeze said: “Going by ongoing security breaches and undeniable cases of terrorist acts in the Southeast, it has become unavoidable to make the following observations and demands;
“Even though the perpetrators of these terrorist acts on Southeast soil have variously and unabashedly made it clear that they are advancing the ideologies and programs, which were initially championed by the Indigenous People of Biafra, [/b]the leadership of IPOB has vehemently denied authorizing any of the recent killings, arsons, destructions, economic sabotage and glaring terrorist activities being perpetrated across the Southeast.
“This situation leaves no doubt that the leadership of the IPOB has either lost control of the situation or some fifth columnists have hijacked the initiative and are now hiding under its the Biafran agitation to wreak havoc across the Southeast. It, therefore, becomes pertinent to invite the IPOB leadership to take steps towards quickly redeeming herself.
