Nigeria and IPOB again: In a press memo statement disclosed on Friday 26 May 2017 in Anambra State, by IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, the group said its intelligence unit had uncovered a grand plot to kill businesses in Igboland.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned the continued detention of the founder and owner CEO of Capital Oil and Gas Ltd, Chief Ifeanyi Ubah by the FGN through its agency the DSS, saying should anything happen to Chief Ubah those keeping him in prison should be prepared to face the consequence from IPOB.
The statement read as follows “We want the DSS to know that an attack on Ifeanyi Ubah is an attack on Biafra; the DSS should know that we are watching on this matter and must continue following it until it gets to its logical conclusion”.
“We have been informed by IPOB intelligence unit that this Ifeanyi Uba arrest by the DSS was the perfection of hard economic policies against our people and strangulation of Igbo businessmen in Nigeria.
“The ground plan to stop every business controlling by our people in Nigeria is eating deep in Nigeria economy because our people are the major businessmen in Nigeria today.
“Arresting Dr. Ifeanyi Uba because of his legitimate business proves to all and sundry that we are no more needed in the contraption called Nigeria.”
“It is pathetic that well meaning Nigerians are keeping quiet over the continued damage the DSS is causing Nigeria”.
“We want to state it categorically clear to all the Northern dominated DSS and other politicians that nothing should happen to our brother, Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah because he committed no crime against anybody or Nigeria state.
“In line with this, we warn that Ifeanyi Uba should be released before it is too late or they will see the power of IPOB under Nnamdi Kanu all over the world; we cannot afford to watch them continue to humiliate and intimate him for no just cause.”
IPOB further expressed their grievances over disobedience of court order that Chief be released from prison within 48 hours and his continue detention by the FGN through it agency the DSS.
