Plans afoot to assassinate Atiku in S’East – IPOB claims

The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Sunday, claimed that its intelligence unit, called the M-Branch, has uncovered a plot to assassinate Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in the Southeastern part of the country.

IPOB’s spokesman, Mr. Emma Powerful, claimed that Atiku’s assassination would be blamed on the followers of Mr. Peter Obi and the Labour Party (LP).

Mr. Powerful’s 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.”
