FG reveals IPOB responsible for looting of Oba’s palace and #EndSARS attacks
The national government has accused the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its tactical wing, the Eastern Security Network (ESN), for some fierce assaults in Lagos and different pieces of the country during the October 2020 #EndSARS fight.
Principal legal officer of the Federation, Abubakar Malami who talked at a question and answer session today October 22, asserted that ESN was set up by Nnamdi Kanu to complete “rebellious exercises” against Nigeria, and the captured IPOB pioneer prompted the huge scope obliteration of public resources during the #EndSARS fight especially in Lagos, just as the South-east and South-south districts.
FG blames IPOB for Lagos #EndSARS attacks, looting of Oba’s palace and other crimes.
Malami said; “The EndSARS protests of October 2020 played into the sinister plans of Nnamdi Kanu, whereby he seized the protests through subversive and inciting online broadcasts and actively commanded and directed attacks on security personnel and facilities.
“There were several IPOB/ESN attacks and destruction (arson) of public and private properties during the EndSARS and Biafra agitations across the country, especially in the South-East and South-South regions, notably the Palace of the Oba of Lagos where twelve (12) flats were completely looted and vandalized.
“Lagos State DNA and Forensic Centre, City Hall Race Course, First Bank Branch Lagos, Lagos State Public Works Commission, Nigeria Port Authority (NPA), Marina, Lagos, High Court Igbosere, Lagos, were all burnt, amongst other heinous crimes committed.
“The country home of the Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma, was burnt, over one hundred and fifty (150) buses burnt at the Lagos Bus Terminal, Sen. Ndoma Egba’s home in Calabar Municipal, Cross River State, was completely looted and vandalised.
“As a result of these broadcasts, members of IPOB attacked and killed security personnel and burnt down police stations, correctional centers, INEC offices, bus terminals, the Palace of Oba of Lagos, banks, hospitals, shopping malls and vehicles, amongst others.”
