‘Presidency behind bogus IPOB splinter groups’



'Presidency behind bogus IPOB splinter groups'
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has accused the Presidency and the Department of State Services, DSS, of orchestrating the purported division within its rank.
It would be recalled that IPOB recently split into factions with Renegade Indigenous People of Biafra, RENIPOB and The Reformed Indigenous People of Biafra, TRIPOB coming out of the Pro-Biafra group.
Both groups also nominated detained Charles Okah as their leader, with Okah accepting same in a statement he issued on Monday.
However, IPOB, in a statement issued by its spokespersons, Emma Mmezu and Dr Clifford Iroanya, said the purported divisions in their rank were mere comic relieves orchestrated by the Presidency through the DSS to divert the attention of Nigerians from the hunger and killings in the land.
According to the statement, IPOB accused government of failing to find solutions to the growing number of Nigerians hanging themselves and dropping suicide notes for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The statement reads partly: “We have it on authority, that the decision to use the DSS to entertain Nigerians on purported factions in the great IPOB was taken at the presidency, in order to humour starving citizens, and take their minds away from the killings and excruciating poverty ravaging the land.
“The writers of the comedy of splinter groups in the indomitable IPOB, know that their childish storyline is not believable, but went ahead to amuse the world for some reasons.
“One, they wrote a request for approval of a huge imprest to create imaginary splinter groups, so they could make some money for themselves as times are so hard. The security operatives are at a loss how to pay school fees and feed their families at this period of great hunger in the land.
“The fact remains, that the idiotic choice of attempting to create imaginary splinter groups is a total waste of time, energy and resources.
“It is lost on the public, how the actors in this melodrama are the only people yet to note that they are only making compound fools of themselves.
“This development, says so much, about the quantity, calibre and intelligence of the characters who run the intelligence services. What a tragedy.”
