The Indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, said it did not invade police station in Asaba, Delta State, as alleged by Nigerian police.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the group described the allegation as lie and fabrication, adding that they have released a video footage which proves that they are not behind the attack.
IPOB said that police attacked its members on Tuesday April 16, 2019 during a peaceful procession in Asaba the capital of Delta State.
“All the lies the Delta State Police Command concocted is purely to justify the killing of innocent people during the procession’, the group said.
According to IPOB, the police and federal government of Nigeria is also trying to divert public attention from their crime of stealing the mandate of the people during the just concluded 2019 Presidential election.
IPOB Press Release
17 April 2019
It is very sad and gravely disappointing that Nigerian Police Force in Delta State, that epitome of corruption and evil, have taken time-off from their usual extortion on check-points and daily killings of innocent civilians to once again turn their murderous attention to IPOB. Their well publicised lies about alleged police station invasion by IPOB in Asaba yesterday is so ludicrous that only a natural born liar like Lai Mohammed and possibly a rabid anti-Biafra deranged fool can believe such hogwash.
Perhaps the Inspector General of Police and some Fulani elements within the Nigerian Police Force is seeking to relieve the pressure Jubril Al-Sudan the Buhari impostor is undergoing at the election tribunal in Abuja, where we understand he has beem compelled to tender what we all know to be a non-existent WAEC result. Whoever concocted this silly allegation about IPOB invading a police station and sold it to the Nigerian press must be steeped in the same lying tradition as Lai Mohammed.
The truth of the matter is that Delta State IPOB family members were attacked on Tuesday April 16, 2019 during a peaceful procession in Asaba the capital of Delta State. For those who may wish to know, Asaba is a Biafran town and the birthplace of Col. Achuzie, one of the great heroes of the Biafra-Nigeria war. Therefore, we IPOB have every right to exercise our constitutionally guaranteed right to peaceful assembly. At no time did we IPOB or anybody for that matter invade any police station in Asaba. All the lies the Delta State Police Command concocted is purely to justify the killing of innocent people during the procession.
The fact illiterate Nigerian police officers in Asaba are unsurprisingly ignorant of the constitution and laws of Nigeria does not mean they have the right to lie by alleging something that never happened. They forgot the whole incident was filmed thereby rendering their lies useless. We have released video footage of the incident to once again prove their statement to be nothing but lies and fabrication.
We are disappointed that in this day and age some media houses will elect to abandon objectivity when reporting a statement from a world renowed institutionally corrupt police organisation.
If those that issued this gravely misleading and injurious allegation against IPOB are hoping to deflect attention from their crimes then they are mistaken. From Delta State Police Commissioner to the DPO in charge of the station that opened fire on unarmed Biafrans- killing and injuring many in the process, all will pay dearly for the death of those they killed and injured. There will be retribution.
No amount of sponsored lies against peaceful IPOB will exonerate these lying and corrupt policemen in Asaba. The time of reckoning will surely come.
Those unelected shadowy figures in Aso Rock led by Abba Kyari, those that recruited Jubril Al-Sudani, should face their fate at the election tribunal. They should stop using the police to make outlandish and unsubstantiable allegations against the noble IPOB family in order to change the news headline with the hope of diverting public attention away from their crime of stealing the mandate of the people.
