Update: IPOB and ESN reply Nigerian Army Over Soldiers Murdered on The Way to Their Wedding in Imo State.
Aftermath of the behe@d!ng of about-to-wed soldiers in Imo state and subsequent accusation of IPOB/ESN for the murder of the miliraty couple, the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB has now replied to the Nigerian Army.
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB have denied that it was involved in the gruesome murder of the slain soldiers.
IPOB says it is not responsible for the murder of a military couple on transit to Imo State a few days ago.
Recall that the soldiers, Master Warrant Officer (MWO) Audu M Linus (retired) and Private (Pte)Gloria Matthew, were beheaded on Saturday on their way to Imo for their traditional marriage.
The Nigerian Army released a statement on Tuesday laying accusations at the doorstep of the secessionist group and its militant wing, saying they were responsible.
The Army Director of Public Relations, Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, in a statement, expressed anger over IPOB’s alleged inability to spare a South Easterner.
Meanwhile, IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, released a staement denying their involvement in the murder of the soldiers saying they could not have hurt their daughter, describing the incident as abominable.
The statement instead accused the Nigerian Army and the Department of State Services, DSS of killing the military couple.
The statement reads, “We, therefore, wish to place on record that IPOB has no hands in the said atrocity which is an abominable act in Igbo tradition. No true Igbo will hurt an in-law, how much more a married daughter (Ada) in Igbo land. Even the ancestors will avenge such wickedness.
“We cannot kill our sister who is about to marry but those who killed them were those Nigerian government and its security agencies, especially the military and DSS created to demonize IPOB and ESN.
These agents of death some of whom we have made their identities public severally are behind the killings of these soldiers, not IPOB or ESN operatives,” the separatist group claimed.
