Independent Peoples of Biafra on Sunday urged Nigerians to hold Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma and the All Progressives Congress responsible for the murder of a former Peoples Democratic Party National Chairman, Ahmed Gulak.
The politician was shot and killed in a taxi while being driven from his hotel in Owerri, the Imo State capital to Sam Mbakwe Airport on Saturday.
The police swiftly accused IPOB of killing the politician.
However, IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, said in a statement that the group had no business with Gulak and didn’t even know he was in the state.
It reads: ”
“The Nigeria intelligence community has shown how unprofessional they are, today is not sit-at-home.
“People are going to church and this was why he shifted the date to tomorrow. This is political assassination; we are not in the same party with Gulak.
“Uzodinma and APC knows about Gulaks death, we do not know anything about his movement, talk more of him being in the state. Nigerians believe this because they hate IPOB, Biafra.”
