The First Republic Minister of Aviation, Mbazulike Amaechi, has hinted at allowing the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB and Eastern Security Network, ESN to defend themselves.
Amaechi said while going about their activities in the Southeast, IPOB, and ESN should defend themselves if they are attacked.
The nationalist also used the opportunity to caution both ESN and IPOB against causing violence in the Southeast.
In a statement, Amaechi accused security agents of igniting insecurity in the region.
The elder statesman suggested that security agents can be responsible for the insecurity in the Southeast, just in a bid to tarnish the image of IPOB and ESN.
“I will advise IPOB to steer clear of what is happening in the South East and let the truth be revealed. Let them maintain the sanctity of their innocence. If the ESN people are attacked, let them defend themselves. I don’t want IPOB to go into violence because they have neither the arms nor the wherewithal and capability to do that.
“Who is investigating these attacks? The Police is investigating the IPOB. Can the police investigate the government or themselves? What is happening now is like what Hitler did against the Jews, sent their secret service men to commit certain crimes, and got back to accuse the Jews.
“I believe they are sending them to commit these attacks and burning of properties so that the impression will be that IPOB is behind it in order for them to either kill them or declare a state of emergency in Igbo land or to do whatever they like or completely kill the Igbo the way they like,” Amaechi’s statement read.
There have been series of violence going on in the Southeast, where unknown gunmen have been attacking government institutions and security personnel.
