Sit-At-Home: ‘Politicians Behind Killing Of Soldiers’ – IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, said on Friday that politicians trying to create “problems in peaceful Enyimba city” are behind the killing of the soldiers in Aba, Abia State.

While distancing its members from the killing of soldiers in Aba, IPOB said politicians used criminals to carry out the attack.

In a statement he signed, Powerful said IPOB was preoccupied with the sit-at-home order.

According to Powerful, IPOB condemned the killing of the soldiers.

He said: “We condemn the attack on military on duty in Aba, we are not involved because sit-at-home was because of our fallen heroes and heroines and time of mourning and not to attack anybody in respect of that; therefore, anybody mentioning IPOB as responsible for the attack in Aba is under the control of something.

“IPOB has no chance to attack anyone; those responsible for this attack are politicians; they are planning to create problems in peaceful Enyimba City, so the governor of Abia State must be careful; they are coming to create a crisis in Aba.

“Those who were used to attack military on duty are criminals, not IPOB; we are much more engaged with sit-at-home to remember our fallen heroes and heroines who died during the genocidal war against Biafrans and Ndigbo. IPOB condemns the criminal activities of yesterday.”

On Thursday, some unknown gunmen killed five soldiers in Aba, Abia State, during the sit-at-home declared by IPOB to remember those killed during the Biafra civil war.

The incident was said to have taken place at Obikabia Junction Checkpoint in Obingwa Local Government Area, adjourning Aba metropolis.
