The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused Asari Dokubo, an ex-militant leader, of mobilising his alleged gangs to kill innocent indigenes of Imo State and other parts of the South-East.
Emma Powerful, the secessionist group’s spokesperson, made the allegations in a statement on Thursday.
IPOB warned that it was running out of patience and that it would retaliate against Dokubo and his alleged criminal gangs in the near future.
The group claimed that the ex-militant leader lacked the authority to put a stop to the secessionists, claiming that even the Nigerian military was powerless to do so.
He said, “Asari Dokubo being somebody who hates Ndigbo and Biafra agitation championed by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB members worldwide brought out his criminal gang to kill innocent Biafrans in Imo State in the name of chasing IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu.
“We therefore, warn the Izon people to caution Asari Dokubo. If Nigeria Government with all their military arsenal can’t stop IPOB, Asari Dokubo and his criminal gangs from kalabari are small fry to IPOB.
“Now that Asari Dokubo is displaying his ignorance and killing skills on our innocent citizens, nobody should blame IPOB when we lunch offensive attack against him and his Kalabari criminals in Imo State who followed him because we must get them
It was reported that Asari Dokubo and the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu were in war of words prior to the rearrest of the latter by the Nigerian government.
