Experts and security operatives have alleged that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are deliberately attacking security formations in the South East to steal weapons in order to fight for the actualization of the Biafra Republic when the time comes.
A retired Assistant Inspector of Police, Ambrose Aisabor, said on Monday that the IPOB agitators are bent on declaring the Biafra republic and therefore building up their armory by attacking security formations.
According to him, this explained why the security arm of the proscribed group has not been attacking innocent citizens.
He said, ‘If you look at it, they are not attacking ordinary people. They are attacking the police, the army, and the air force that is what they are doing.
‘Why they are attacking those military formations is because they want to have enough ammunition to enable them to prosecute their war against the government of Nigeria. They want to have their own police; they want to have their own armory and so on.’
AIG Aisabor said they have become so emboldened to attack the security formations because of the failure of intelligence on the part of the security agencies.
According to the security expert, it is high time the security agencies improved on their intelligence gathering to forestall future attacks.
