The Indigenous People of Biafra has reacted to reports that the Nigerian Army launched an attack on Eastern Security Network (ESN) camp in Aba, Abia state, killing at least 16 operatives and injuring others.
A top military source told a popular online medium that the Nigerian military in conjunction with Police allegedly raided the ESN camp on Tuesday night, and 16 were reportedly killed.
Reacting, IPOB announced that the Nigerian Army and police did not kill any operative of the Eastern Security Network in Abia State.
In a statement made available to Topnaija, media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful asked the army to publish the exact camp of the ESN it attacked and show videos and photos of their operations.
Although some photos had surfaced showing how the alleged ESN Operatives were murdered in cold blood, but IPOB said they are innocent citizens and not members of the ESN.
“Nigerian army should stop lying to the public.
Let them show pictures or videos of those ESN operatives they killed. Army, police, air force, including all the other security outfits in Nigeria cannot do ESN anything, not when they killed innocent citizens and they tagged them ESN operatives.
“Let them disclose where ESN camp is located and how it looks like. Don’t mind the army propaganda machine because we know them before they come, they can’t deceive us. ESN is rooted and Nigerian security agencies cannot come across them.
Powerful reiterated that the ESN is out to defend and protect the land and forest in the Southeast without hinderance.
“Let them come; we are waiting for them. Let them show the bodies of those they claimed to have killed”.
