The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has claimed that the killings and beheading of people in Imo State were being carried out by Otokoto boys.
IPOB alleged that the Imo State government led by Hope Uzodinma, brought back fraudsters and ritualists who were chased out of the state during the Otokoto riot of 1996.
IPOB also challenged Imo State elders and political elites to be bold enough to question Uzodimma on why the alleged criminals have made their way back to the state or keep their mouths shut over linking of the crimes of killings and beheading of people to IPOB’s Eastern Security Network (ESN).
IPOB in a recent statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary who has the pseudonym, Emma Powerful, said: “We know their characters, their homes and their stories well, and know how the assigned governor of Imo State was hobnobbing with them as a Senator, and it was a matter of him becoming the Imo State chief executive for them to return with their boys to hide under the name of the government to continue unleashing terror on the people, the reason for which they were chased out of the state in the first place.
“We want Imo State elders and political elites to ask the state governor, why his government has brought back people that were chased out of the state for their crimes back to continue their atrocious activities?”
