Heinous crime – IPOB lawyer, Ejiofor condemns killing of soldiers in Abia

The lead counsel to the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has described the killing of five soldiers by enforcers of the sit-at-home order last Thursday in Abia State as a heinous crime.
Condemning the killing in a statement on Saturday in Owerri, Ejiofor said IPOB had no hand in the incident, stressing that it was the handwork of criminals.
“I roundly condemn, in unmistaken terms, the unprovoked attack on military personnel at a checkpoint in Aba, Abia State, on the 30th day of May 2024.
“While we pray for the repose of the souls of those who lost their lives in this dastardly act, carefully perpetuated by the real enemies of Biafra and Biafrans, I urge for all hands to be on deck to ensure that those responsible for this heinous attack are fished out.”
He said it is unreasonable to attribute the act to IPOB, stressing that the group had maintained its peaceful stance in the quest for a Biafra nation and have at all times distanced itself from the activities of criminals claiming to be freedom fighters.
“Whatever evil motive behind the actions of the evil souls that perpetuated this evil act has no justification under any circumstance and stands totally condemned. The long arms of the law must surely catch up with those responsible for this heinous crime!” he added.
