IPOB: Nigerians React To Imo Governor’s Comments On Monday’s Attack

    • Gunmen had attacked the Nigerian Correctional Facility in Imo State freeing score of inmates

    Following a comment made by Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, that members of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) movement are not responsible for the attacks on police and correctional facilities in the state on Monday, social media have begun buzzing with reactions from Nigerians.

    Gunmen had attacked the Nigerian Correctional Facility in Imo State freeing score of inmates. They also stormed the Police headquarters in the state, setting it ablaze in the wake of the attack.

    Barely twenty-four hours after the attack, former Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, said the IPOB and ESN were responsible for the attacks, an allegation the IPOB has since denied.

    Speaking during a programme on Channels Television, Governor Uzodinma insisted that the IPOB was not responsible for the attacks.

    The governor instead blamed politicians for fomenting violence with the intention to undermine the efforts of the federal government at addressing the security challenges of the country.

    Similarly, Ekohotblog reported on Thursday that a former assistant director with the Department of State Services (DSS), Dennis Amachree, said that the state governor and the Nigerian Police Force were alerted three times by the agency prior to the attacks.

    The former DSS official also faulted the immediate past IG’s claims, saying that the IPOB did not mastermind the attacks.

    However, a cross-section of Nigerians have taken to social media to express their opinion about the Governor’s comments.
