Biafra: IPOB Reveals Identity Of Ikonso’s Deputy ‘Arrested’ By Nigerian Army

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by Nnamdi Kanu has dismissed reports that the Nigerian Army captured the second-in-command to killed Commander Ikonso.

In a statement by IPOB’s publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, the pro-Biafra group stated that the man had issues with his traditional ruler who later gave him up a member of the Eastern Security Network (ESN).

IPOB described the purpoted arrest as “a blatant lie and a cheap propaganda to lay false claims to imaginary military prowess.”

The group declared that the said man was not an operative of ESN, adding that “Such a man is too old to be recruited into ESN let alone being Ikonso’s Second-in-Command.”

Emma Powerful said: “That you ambushed Ikonso with the help of some traitors did not mean you have crushed ESN. Stop claiming what you have not done in your bid to win public accolades. If you arrest or kill Ikonso’s Second-in-Command, we will not hesitate to admit it just the same way we did not deny the murder of Ikonso. We are not like Nigeria that lives in propaganda; we tell the truth always. So, stop harassing innocent Biafrans in the name of a manhunt for ESN personnel.

“The Nigeria security agents should stop making a mockery of themselves. The arrest of innocent Biafrans and labeling them ESN operatives cannot make you overpower our gallant ESN operatives.

“Our background check revealed that the said man had issues with his traditional ruler who gave his contact to the security agents alleging that he belongs to ESN. He is not our own.”

He noted further that “We are assuring them that whatever they do, they cannot win ESN in this fight for freedom. The secret killing and abduction can never make IPOB change our resolve towards restoring Biafra as an independent nation.”
