The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB has accused the Nigerian Army, Police and Ebubeagu security outfit of being behind the abductions and killing going on in the South East region of Nigeria.
The organisation called on the international community to send an investigation team to the South East to find out the situation of things.
In a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the organisation said:
“We raise the alarm over the incessant abductions and killings going on in Imo State and other states in the South East region by Nigeria security agents.
“The criminal gangs of the infamous Ebubeagu security outfit with the joint task force of compromised Nigeria Army and police have eliminated scores of innocent youths in many communities in Orsu and Orlu LGAs of Imo State.
“Those who were lucky to escape their bullets they chased out of their ancestral land. Women and children were not spared in this brutal wickedness.
“The list of hapless communities affected include but not limited to the following: Oboh Umutanze, Attah, Okporo, Amaifeke, Ihioma, Ama-aza, Amannachi, Nnempi, Akata, Orsuihiteukwa and Umutanze.
“Mortuaries across Imo State especially in Owerri are filled with unclaimed corpses who are burred in a mass graves or destroyed with acid from time to time.
“We call on the United Nations, America, British High Commissioner, Israeli Ambassador, German Ambassador, French Ambassador, Canadian Ambassador, Japanese Ambassador, Australian Ambassador, Amnesty International, Intersocity groups, Human Rights Watch and all Human Rights Organisations across the globe to send an investigation team to these communities and find out what the situation is.
” They will confirm to their amazement that nobody is dwelling in these communities. Imo youths and people have been indiscriminately and mercilessly killed by terrorist soldiers deployed in Imo State by the Federal Government in collaboration with Hope Uzodinma.
“The incessant killing of the youths of these communities has turned the affected communities into Ghost towns.
“It’s too appalling that Ebubeagu security outfit would join hands in killing our people and call them unknown gunmen. History will judge them all.”
