IPOB Release Statement Concerning Ahmed Gulak Death (See Details)

Published

on

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has insisted that it’s not a terrorist group and does not spill blood.

IPOB, while distancing itself from Gulak’s death, stressed that the assassination of politicians is not part of its agenda.

IPOB made the remark while insisting that it was not responsible for the murder of Ahmed Gulak, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.

Some gunmen murdered Gulak while on his way to Sam Mbakwe Airport in Owerri, Imo State, yesterday.

The Nigeria intelligence community had linked the Gulak’s killing to IPOB, but the state Police Command had refuted such claims.

Imo State Police Command spokesman, Bala Elkana, had said armed bandits murdered the former presidential aide.

However, Elkana later recanted his earlier remark, saying men of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, killed Gulak.

A Situation Report, SITREP, had confirmed that ESN operatives had waylaid and killed Gulak along the airport road at Obiangwu Junction at Ngor-Okpala Local Government Area.

Reacting, IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, distanced the secessionist group from the assassination.

A statement by Powerful reads:

“The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the untenable allegation by the security agencies that IPOB was responsible for the assassination of former presidential aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak on his way to Sam Mbakwe Airport Owerri Imo State.

“We, therefore, state without equivocations that IPOB knows nothing about the said assassination. We had nothing in common with Gulak and could not have killed him.

“This is purely a smokescreen to justify their long awaited plan to declare another special military operation in the Eastern region to kill more innocent Biafrans.

“IPOB is not a terrorist organization and does not spill blood.

“For us, connecting with the assassination of Gulak is simply to pitch the East against the core Islamic North as a cover and justification for another round of pogrom against Easterners living in the North.

“We are only after the restoration of Biafra. Assassination of politicians is not part of our agenda.”

EKWUNIFE FACILITATES BUSINESS GRANTS FOR 1000 BENEFICIARIES

Over 1000 beneficiaries have been credited in another batch of intervention funds cash transfers facilitated by the Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Uche Ekwunife as part of her continuous efforts to empower the people of the constituency and assist them in their businesses.

The cash transfers began to drop on the bank accounts of the beneficiaries who had applied at the constituency office on Friday, June 18, 2021. We therefore use this opportunity to urge constituents who had applied for intervention funds from the office to always check their phones regularly for acceptance messages, and subsequently expect the receipt of funds. Those who have taken delivery of the funds should report to the office for documentation and further assistance.

Constituents are at liberty to visit the Intervention Funds and Benefits Department of the Liaison Office, located at Senator Uche Ekwunife Centre, Opposite Udoka Housing Estate Awka to provide details which would assist the office in facilitating the various Federal Government’s intervention funds/benefits for them.

Senator Ekwunife’s resolve to ameliorate the sufferings of the people by offering a representation that is visible, impactful and purposeful remains unflinching. More beneficiaries are expected to be captured in the ongoing programme in the coming weeks.

Felix Nwezi,
Director, Intervention Funds and Benefits Department Anambra Central Liaison Office.

Boko Haram Gets New Commanders

Published

on

Nigeria’s Boko Haram jihadist group has confirmed the death of its chief Abubakar Shekau, who sources say died during infighting with a rival Islamic State-allied faction, according to a video message from its presumed new commander.

In the short video in Arabic, top Boko Haram commander Bakura Modu, also known as Sahaba, urged his faction’s commanders to remain loyal despite the loss of their historic commander.

Shekau’s death was seen a major shift in Nigeria’s conflict, though Islamic State in West Africa Province or ISWAP has recently emerged as the dominant force in the more than decade-long Islamist insurgency in the country’s northeast.

The video, provided to AFP by a source close to Boko Haram and confirmed to be Bakura Modu by another local source, illustrates that jihadist infighting is far from over in Africa’s most populous nation.

Shekau, who gained notoriety after kidnapping nearly 300 schoolgirls in 2014, killed himself last month rather than surrender after IS-allied rivals attacked his base camp in Nigeria’s northeast Borno state, security sources said.
