To begin to deal with the problem, the Ohanaeze urged IPOB to order their real members to be recruited to the official safety outfit of the South East, the Ebubeagu.
Ohanaeze mentioned: “Going by ongoing safety breaches and plain circumstances of terrorist acts within the Southeast, it has turn into unavoidable to make the next observations and calls for;
“Although the perpetrators of those terrorist acts on Southeast soil have variously and unabashedly made it clear that they’re advancing the ideologies and applications, which have been initially championed by the Indigenous Individuals of Biafra, the management of IPOB has vehemently denied authorizing any of the current killings, arsons, destructions, financial sabotage and evident terrorist actions being perpetrated throughout the Southeast.
“This case leaves little question that the management of the IPOB has both misplaced management of the state of affairs or some fifth columnists have hijacked the initiative and are actually hiding below its the Biafran agitation to wreak havoc throughout the Southeast.
