The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has stated that Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi cannot be linked to the recent attack on the US convoy in Anambra State.
In a recent statement, IPOB Spokesman Emma Powerful warned those linking Obi to the incident to desist from doing so.
He called the allegation an act of demonization by individuals who do not want the former Anambra governor to succeed.
Speaking further, the group stated that Obi is being robbed of the mandate he was given by Nigerians because of his ethnicity.
“There is no way they can link innocent Peter Obi to it because he is from Anambra State.
“Does that mean that all the attacks happening in Adamawa State and Katsina State were caused by Atiku Abubakar and the Buhari in Aso Rock, respectively?
“No matter how ESN security work is, it can never be deemed good or right by the Nigerian government and its security agents.
“What is the justification to link Peter Obi to the criminalities going on in the Southeast?
“Can it also be said that all the banditry and terrorism happening in Northern Nigeria is masterminded by their criminal politicians whose evidence shows that they aid and abet terrorists?
“We are aware that several terrorist and bandit groups in the North are sponsored by the unscrupulous elements around them there. We should be asking, why are they mentioning Peter Obi?
“Is it because he summoned up the courage to contest their selection process called an election and won by a landslide?
“They are now robbing him of the mandate given to him by the people of Nigeria because he is an Igbo man.
“They are busy exposing their cluelessness in desperation to demonize IPOB.
“America has one of the most sophisticated intelligence in the world and can not be deceived by Alamajiris in the government at Abuja.
“We expect the US government to carry out an independent investigation into the attack”, the statement reads.
