It has been revealed who was behind the violent attacks on the Imo state police headquarters and the Correctional Centre.
The attacks are being carried out by the Federal Government, according to the Movement for the Actualisation of the Independent State of Biafra (MASSOB).
MASSOB leader Uchenna Madu said the attacks were ploys by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to discredit pro-Biafra groups in a statement released on Tuesday.
“Through MASSOB intelligence agency, we found out that all these attacks are being sponsored and executed by Federal Government of Nigeria through their protected militiamen called bandits and unknown gunmen.“Their primary aim is to discredit non- violence pro Biafra freedom fighters like MASSOB and IPOB.“They want to create an erroneous impression that pro Biafra agitators have turned violent and militancy.“How can untrained and amateurs with no military training overpower the entire security apparatus of Nigeria in South East?“Why is it that there was no security resistance during the breaking up of Owerri prisons and Imo State police headquarters in an operation that lasted more than one hour?”
The Federal Government is plotting to militralise the entire Biafra land in disguise of searching for pro-Biafra agitators.They are planning to intimidate and inflict fear on our people to frustrate Ndigbo from clamouring for 2023 presidency,” the group further alleged.
