IPOB replies DSS over alleged plot to attack banks for arms import


The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has debunked claim by the Department of State Services, DSS, that it is perfecting strategies to attack banks and use the loot to procure arms abroad.

IPOB in a statement its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, described the allegation as a badly written script initiated to discredit the secessionist group.

  “The DSS is propelling this wicked propaganda to blackmail Eastern Security Network and IPOB, and dent our global reputation.

“IPOB and ESN are not criminals and we have no plans or agenda to touch any institution particularly banks.

“We are not looking for money to buy arms because we produce our arms locally and cannot attack or kidnap anybody for ransom. “We don’t inflict pains on the people we are fighting for their freedom. DSS must stop this rubbish and engage their time on something more meaningful. This poor script cannot fly… ESN has never left its mandate which is to defend Biafra land against Fulani terrorists and killer herdsmen,” Powerful wrote.
