DSS Reveals Those Behind Vicious Attacks In South East.
The Department of State Security Services (DSS) has said criminals disguised as Biafra agitators are responsible for the bloody attacks in the South East.
The DSS Director in Imo State, Wilcox Idaminabo, said this on Monday at an event organised by the Center for Transparency Advocacy (CTA) ahead of the November 11 governorship election in the state.
Idaminabo revealed that criminals are carrying out attacks on lives and properties in the region under the guise of fighting for Biafra agitation, Streetdope reports.
He said killings and other criminal activities in the geo-political zone are “wrapped around the ideology of Biafra” and disguised as agitations for self-determination.
The DSS official: “They are hiding under this guise to perpetrate killings and turn our people slaves in their own homes,” he said.
When I led the operation to Orsu LGA, what we saw was rather gory; headless bodies littered in the bush, and vehicles that had been abandoned. It was terrible.”
The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has continued to demand the release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in order to continue the agitation for the Biafra Republic.
Meanwhile, on March 15, the Global Terrorism Index (GTI) ranked IPOB as the 10th deadliest terror group in the world. The GTI added that the group was responsible for 40 attacks and 57 deaths in 2022.
