The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Sunday alleged that its intelligence unit, M-Branch, has uncovered a plot to assassinate PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the South East.
Emma Powerful, IPOB spokesman alleged that Atiku’s assassination would be blamed on the followers of Peter Obi and the Labour Party, LP.
His statement reads: “In view of the state-sponsored insecurity ravaging Nigeria, we, the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of the great liberator Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu wish to alert the public on the intelligence report at our disposal of plans to attack Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the South East and blame it on IPOB, ESN or the presidential candidate, Peter Obi’s supporters, the Obidient group.
“IPOB intelligence unit, the M-Branch uncovered a plan by some unscrupulous politicians to cause crises in the country against IPOB and Ndigbo all over the country.
“This group is planning to assassinate Atiku Abubakar in the southeastern part of Nigeria and claim it is done by unknown gunmen, ESN/IPOB, or the Obidient group.”
