‘We don’t engage in killings’ — IPOB berates FG over alleged killing of Igbo Muslim cleric

THE Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB has replied to the Federal Government of Nigeria and Northern Nigeria-based daily newspaper, over their allegation that it killed an Igbo Muslim Cleric, Sheikh Ibrahim Iyiorji in Ebonyi State.

IPoB, in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful entitled, “IPoB does not know Sheikh Iyiorji, let alone who killed him” said that it does not kill its known enemies let alone killing an Igbo man who is not in any way threat to it.

The proscribed pro-Biafra group said that the important questions the Nigeria Federal Government and Northern Nigeria owned and based newspaper, should answer are, “why will IPOB kill an Igbo Islamic Cleric, and whether the alleged killed Islamic Cleric was a threat to the Biafra movement, and how many of IPoB’s known enemies have been killed in the past, let alone killing their own, irrespective of his religion?

IPoB’s statement read, “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, under the leadership and command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to disassociate ourselves from the alleged murder of a purported Muslim Cleric, Sheikh Ibrahim Iyiorji of Ebonyi State.

“We, therefore, warn Daily Trust media outlet owned by a Fulani man to stop propagating falsehood, fabricated statements, fallacies, and unconfirmed statements against IPOB worldwide.

“We wish to let other media houses assisting them in their desperation to tarnish the image of IPOB to beware of their evil reportage against IPoB known to be peaceful in all its dealings.

“IPOB does not engage in such barbaric killings and cannot be part of such heinous crime against humanity. IPOB does not kill flies talk of human beings and an Igbo man for that matter, irrespective of his religious belief.
