The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Saturday said no member of the group was arrested in Ebonyi state.The Ebonyi State Police Command had on

It said the suspects were arrested at a bush at Amasiri in the Afikpo North local government area of the state on Tuesday by men of the Nigeria Police and other security agents while allegedly planning to hold their 2019 summit in the state.

It further explained it had never hosted events in the bushes nor forests, but honoured its heroes with a general strike on designated days of the year.

“We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its leadership worldwide wish to categorically state that those Dave Umahi claim to have arrested in Ebonyi are not IPOB family members because our movement is not in the habit of celebrating any anniversary either in Biafraland or in the diaspora, since the inception of this great movement.

“This blatant lie and misinformation sold to the media that IPOB members were arrested in Ebonyi is simply a lie designed to mask the horrors of RUGA implimentation by stealth going on in Ebonyi State and to deflect attention away from secret ethnic cleansing of villages to pave way for Fulani settlements in Ebonyi.

“We shall continue to confront and drive them away wherever we observe them engaged in illegal occupation of ancestral lands.
