Massacre: IPOB Declares Ebubeagu Commander Wanted, Announces Bounty

Kenneth Ike, Enugu

Leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has announced a N2 million bounty on the commander of Ebubeagu security outfit.

IPOB issued the bounty while declaring the commander of Ebubeagu in Imo State wanted for the murder of 14 youths in Otulu and Awo-Mmamma area.

A statement by IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, said Eastern Security Network, ESN, in Imo State had been given a matching order to “fish out” the Ebubeagu commander.

The separatist group also linked Governor Hope Uzodinma to the killings in the state.

The statement reads partly: “Hope Uzodinma of Imo State is killing his people in honour of his agreement with the caliphate and consistently lies to the public.

“The head of this murderous militia named Ebube-Agu in Imo State is one drug and cult leader returnee from Mozambique, Mr Izuchukwu Akuegbulanwa (aka Ogwu). As a result of his murderous terrorist activities against our people, IPOB hereby declares him wanted. He is now a wanted person in Biafra land.

“Anybody who gives useful information about him and what will lead to the capture of this murderer will get a reward of N2 million from IPOB. ESN, Imo State Command, has been given a marching order to look for him to account for the innocent blood of Biafrans his criminal gang has wasted.”

The deceased were killed by operatives of Ebubeagu while returning from a wedding.

However, the security outfit and security agents claimed those killed were criminals.

The Department of State Services, DSS, classified those killed as members of ESN and not wedding guests.

DSS also claimed that the youths were killed during an exchange of fierce gunfire with a joint security team.
