IPOB tasks troops deployed to Ukpor on professionalism, decorum

38

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has urged the Nigeria Army and its sisters security agencies deployed to Ukpor in Nnewi South LGA of Anambra State to apply professionalism and decorum as they embark on their mission.

Speaking in a press statement, Comrade Emma Powerful, the Media and Publicity Secretary for IPOB warned the Army to desist from accusing ESN and IPOB volunteers of being responsible for criminalities in the region.

He said that IPOB and ESN operatives are not responsible for the atrocities happening in the area, rather, are there to chase away those criminals operating in and around that area, saying IPOB abhor criminalities.

He said: ”Those being arrested and killed are not IPOB members nor ESN operatives.

“What we are saying is that Nigeria Army and security agents should apply professionalism in their duties because arresting and killing innocent citizens of the area will not help them instead it will destroy and ridicule them.

“Those they arrested and killed are not IPOB members because IPOB members are professionally trained securities, not like criminals terrorising the peaceful communities in Anambra State and some part of Orlu of Imo State.

”We are equally warning Nigeria soldiers deployed in Ukpor Nnewi South LGA to stop going house to house searching innocent people and tagging them ESN.

“That one we cannot afford to accept; face criminals and their collaborators but you must stop going to house to house searching and linking them to be IPOB members.

”Soldiers should mind themselves and apply professionalism and decorum in their duties.”

Emma Powerful condemned what he termed “the desperation to demonise IPOB and ESN operatives”, saying it cannot work for them.

“Arresting innocent people and parading them as ESN operatives or IPOB cannot make them being truthful in their duties.

“We detest criminalities going-on in the Eastern region but that won’t make you kill or slaughtere our people unjustly; IPOB will never succumb to your blackmail and numerous media propaganda.

“IPOB has started to work on those criminals suffering our people there and we are still ready to confront them any time any day.

“We are aware that Nigeria Government created and sponsor them to terrorise our land so they can destroy IPOB name in the region but that won’t work for them,” he noted.
