…Accuses IPOB of complicity in the act

By Joseph Erunke

An Igbo group under the aegis of Coalition of South-East Professional Network in Nigeria and Diaspora (CSEPNND),has condemned attacks launched on the Imo State Police Command’s headquarters, in Owerri, the correctional Centre headquarters in the state, public property as well as security personnel in the state by some criminal elements a few days ago and particularly this morning.

The group which fingered the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), for the act, tasked security agencies to immediately swing into action with a view not only to fish out the perpetrators but also their sponsors to face the law of the land.

Describing the act as not only barbaric but also uncivilized, strange to the South East culture,it warned that unless the madness was immediately stopped, the region may be consumed by actions of the group it referred to as “criminal group.”
