IPOB Has 50,000 Fighting Soldiers - Presidency

The Presidency on Wednesday evening said the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have a 50,000 fighting force that kill security agents and civilians.

A statement made available to newsmen by the President's Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu warned that the Nnamdi Kanu led group intends to hold several states in the South-East ‘hostage’ with its sit-at-home orders.

“IPOB is a designated terrorist organisation. It has now publicly revealed a 50,000 strong paramilitary organisation. It regularly murders security services and innocent civilians, with a significant uptick of violent attacks this year. And it is currently attempting to hold Nigerian states hostage with orders to stay at home under threat of terror,” the statement read in part.

The proscribed group had earlier denounced the sit-at-home order issued on Radio Biafra in protest against the continued detention of leader of the group but hoodlums have been ruthlessly enforcing the order every Monday in the region, forcing the group to vow to deal with the hoodlums.
