The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has distanced itself from the ghastly assassination of Barr Darlington Odume, a legal practitioner.

Odume was reportedly killed by unknown gunmen in Amaifeke Orlu Imo State.

Comr Emma, the Media and publicity secretary of the group has dissuaded Nigerian Bar Association from believing false media propaganda of Nigerian Police and DSS.

He declared this in a statement signed and made available to pressmen in Enugu, where he emphasized that even if IPOB were to be ferocious, they could not hurt lawyers or Journalists.

The perpetrator(s) only did so with the motive to implicate IPOB and the Eastern Security Network ESN as established by Emma.

He also emphasized that the group is a non-violent and peaceful movement and that killing is not part of their mandate.

“We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, distance ourselves from the gruesome murder of a legal practitioner Barr. Darlington Chume Odume popular known as Omekagu who was murdered in Amaifeke Orlu Imo State by the state-sponsored group known as unknown gunmen.”

“Contrary to allegations by those bent on demonizing IPOB, IPOB has no hand in the cruel and unconscionable killing of Barrister Darlington Chume Odume. Those perpetrating these murderous activities in Imo State and other parts of Biafra land are doing so just to implicate IPOB and the Eastern Security Network ESN.” He continued.

“We have severally explained that we have no hands in these gruesome killings in Biafra land but some do not want to believe us. IPOB is a non-violent and peaceful movement with a presence in over 100 countries. We are only after the peaceful restoration of Biafra. Killings are not part of our mandate. Those committing these heinous crimes only do so to possibly implicate us and destroy our global image but we are innocent.”

Emma concluded: “The Nigeria Bar association, NBA should not be deceived by Nigeria police and DSS with their false media propaganda. It makes no sense for IPOB to go after lawyers or Journalists for instance, assuming we are to be violent.”
