Recall that the activities of the unknown gunmen in recent months increased causing loss of lives.
The gunmen have also killed scores of security operatives while government facilities including police stations and Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC offices in the Southeast and some parts of South-South have been destroyed.
While the police and other security agencies have consistently accused the IPOB and the ESN of being the unknown gunmen, Kanu, leader of the group has repeatedly claimed his loyalists are not responsible for the attacks.
“This lie is aimed at justifying the GENOCIDE that is currently underway in #SoutheastNigeria. Again, IPOB & ESN are not unknown gunmen”.
