The Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, on Thursday said some criminals are using the Indigenous People of Biafra and Eastern Security Network’s name to commit a crime in the South-East.
Umahi stated this while speaking on Channels TV, on Thursday.
IPOB and ESN have been blamed for recent attacks on prisons and police stations in the southeast.
The group, however, denied attacking the police facilities.
Umahi in his statement said some criminals not affiliated with IPOB are using the group’s name to commit crimes in the southeast.
The truth of what is happening is that there are bandits everywhere; there are cultists everywhere. What happens now in the southeast is that criminals who may not necessarily be members of IPOB and ESN, will go and commit crimes and they need a name.
So it’s safer for them to say they are members of ESN and IPOB so that the persecution of IPOB and ESN by the federal government will cover them,” he said.
That is what is happening in the southeast because IPOB and ESN have several times come out to say they are not into terrorism and violence, and the people burning police stations and killing are not their members. And so how do you reconcile the two?”
