The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has refuted claims by the Department of State Services (DSS) that it was planning to attack banks in the South East.

The DSS said that IPOB’s plan was to attack banks and use the proceed to buy weapons.

But the secessionist group on Thursday insisted that there was nothing of sort in their plans.

In a statement issued by IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, said they produced their arms locally and don’t buy arms as claimed by DSS, while describing the allegation as poor script.

Part of the statement reads: “We are not looking for money to buy arms because we produce our arms locally.

While assuring banks in the area of safety, the pro-Biafra publicist said IPOB members were freedom fighters and not criminals.

The group’s statement read in part, “The DSS is propelling this wicked propaganda to blackmail Eastern Security Network and IPOB, and dent our global reputation.

“IPOB and ESN are not criminals and we have no plans or agenda to touch any institution particularly banks.

“We are not looking for money to buy arms because we produce our arms locally and cannot attack or kidnap anybody for ransom. “We don’t inflict pains on the people we are fighting for their freedom. DSS must stop this rubbish and engage their time on something more meaningful. This poor script cannot fly… ESN has never left its mandate which is to defend Biafra land against Fulani terrorists and killer herdsmen.”

The statement added, “All banks in Biafraland must be wary of the DSS because it is possible they are planning to sponsor attacks on banks and turn around as usual to blame it on IPOB and ESN.”

IPOB in the statement told criminal elements to stay away from the South East, noting that as freedom fighters, whoever would use the opportunity to tarnish their image will regret it.
