IPOB brands Buhari, DSS propagandists creating fake Biafra groups



Could Buhari have spent N20.5m to treat ear infection?

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has branded President Muhammadu Buhari and Department of State Services (DSS) as propagandists.

The group also accused the president and the secret police organization of creating fake factions within the Biafra agitation group.

The group said it was dishonourable that the DSS was implementing its plan of creating several factions of IPOB.

It accused DSS of creating and promoting fake groups as “RE-IPOB, TRI-POB, BUHARI-POB, OKOROCHA-POB, and OHANEZE-POB,” and asked that the DSS should publish the real photographs of those behind the pseudo organisations for the world to see.

Spokespersons of IPOB, Emma Nmezu and Dr Clifford Iroanya stated this in a statement they jointly signed on Thursday.

The group claimed that its leaders like Nnamdi Kanu, Alphonsus Uchenna Okafor-Mefor and Uchenna Asiegbu among others are known people whose origins can be ascertained as against the fake groups created by the DSS.

“The Federal Government has done a very bad job as a propagandist. In conjunction with agents of DSS, the government in its propaganda misadventure must have succeeded in enraging outstanding propagandists such as Joseph Goebbels, Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf, and Gaddafi’s Moussa Ibrahim.

“The most intriguing aspect of this dance of shame is the use of pseudonyms that are both outlandish and laughable at the same time. For instance, the spokesperson of the Buhari/DSS-POB’s goes by the name Ikemba Biafra.

“Recently, another fictitious name was concocted as “Jonathan Kurubo” purportedly from Igbogene, a community close to River Nun in Bayelsa State. On the contrary, all principal officers and citizens of IPOB under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu bear their real names and have family histories as well as real photographs of themselves.

“For instance, Nnamdi Kanu is from Isiama–Afaraukwu Umuahia-Ibeku in Abia state. He is the son of His Royal Majesty, Eze I. O. Kanu, the Egwu Ukwu of Afaraukwu. The Deputy leader of IPOB is Mazi Alphonsus Uchenna Okafor-Mefor, from Abatete in Idemili area of Anambra State,” the statement read in part.
