The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has alleged that the Department of State Services (DSS) is the mastermind of the attacks and killings in the South East.
IPOB, in a statement on Tuesday by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, claimed the DSS was secret sponsor of Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) and other terrorist organisations in Nigeria.
He also berated the DSS for alleging that the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele was sponsoring IPOB activities with CBN funds.
The group said, “IPOB Intel will soon expose DSS’s secret sponsor of ISWAP, Boko Haram terrorists and bandits in the North. Moreso, DSS should not forget that they are behind the unknown gunmen activities in the South East. The DSS Director and his agents should stop blackmailing IPOB because it wouldn’t stop our push for United Nations (UN) supervised referendum.
“DSS as an institution has displayed yet again ignorance and stupidity by saying that Emefiele uses CBN money to sponsor IPOB. This latest DSS false accusation against Mr. Emefiele shows how clueless and uninformed they (DSS) are about IPOB activities.
“DSS should stop dragging themselves into the mud and stop blackmailing IPOB, or our matters will destroy them. How can the DSS turn themselves into public deception, ridicule and lying machine. IPOB is being financed and sponsored by its members scattered all over the world through our free will financial support. DSS can’t claim ignorance of such sources of funding of IPOB because they have the intelligence unless they want to tell the world that they are daft.”
Powerful said the attempt to tie Emefiele to IPOB funding is a smokescreen designed to implicate and humiliate him out of the office.
