The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has debunked claims by the military that they have destroyed an Eastern Security Network (ESN) camp near Eke Ututu market at Orsumoghu, in Ihiala Local Government of Anambra State.

The pro-separatist group maintained that it has no such camps in the communities where the military claimed they have destroyed.

Spokesman Emma Powerful said individuals identified as ESN operatives and IPOB volunteers in the area were agents of the Nigerian government and were not affiliated to IPOB.

“IPOB said it before now that we don’t have camps for ESN operatives at Orsuihiteukwa, Ihitenansa in Imo State and Ihiala, Nnewi South local governments, Okija, Isseke, Mbosi,  Orsumoghu and Azia communities in Anambra State.”

He said Nigerian government and military “have been using these infiltrators to discredit IPOB and ESN, but their true intentions have been exposed due to their criminal activities.”

In another report, Honourable Emeka Idu who is the member representing Onitsha North and South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, has asserted that the South East Development Commission Bill which was passed recently by the National Assembly would guarantee massive infrastructural development of the South East geopolitical zone.

The Federal lawmaker who commended members of the Senate and House of Representatives for passing the bill for third reading, explained that the South East Development Commission, (SEDC), is established to manage the infrastructural development of the South East such as the construction and rehabilitation of roads, houses and other infrastructural damages in the South Eastern region.

Honourable Idu disclosed further that the commission will also be empowered to tackle the ecological problems and any other environmental or developmental challenges in the region and would also receive and manage funds from the allocation of the federation account to execute infrastructural projects in the South East.
