In response to the supposed covert killings in Delta State, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have threatened Ifeanyi Okowa, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential running mate.
If the killings in Delta State continue, IPOB has threatened to render Okowa’s bid for the vice presidency a dream.
The group’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, urged the governor of Delta State to put an end to the alleged covert murder of residents by security personnel in the state.
According to Powerful, the Eastern Security Network (ESN), is unrelated to the killings, despite what security personnel has said.
Powerful claimed in a letter he issued that Okowa cannot hold IPOB responsible for the deaths in the state because he provided the conditions necessary for security agents to commit such a crime.
‘If Ifeanyi Okowa continues to play ostrich while this barbarity and shielding of innocent people’s blood continues, IPOB will ensure that his Vice Presidential ambition becomes a mirage.’ — The sentence partially reads.
‘It’s foolishness and stupidity for Ifeanyi Okowa to support the Nigeria Government and its compromised security agencies in eliminating innocent people because of the Vice Presidential slot given to him by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.’
‘Governor Okowa cannot provide an enabling environment for Nigeria Government and Fulani-dominated security agencies to eliminate our innocent citizens and claim they are IPOB members and ESN operatives. IPOB has no interest in Nigeria’s selection process called election because we gave ourselves to Biafra freedom and independence and nothing more.’
