The proscribed Igbo separatist group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has given some media houses in the country, a 24-hour ultimatum to withdraw reports that members of its military wing, the Eastern Security Network (ESN), killed two soldiers in Enugu.
The statement by Ekpa reads:
“We are giving Guardian Nigeria, Channel TV and other media houses that reported and alleged that ESN killed two soldiers yesterday in Enugu 24 hours to apologise to Biafrans, IPOB and ESN for that fake news and report.
“You have 24 hours to withdraw the fake report against ESN and IPOB or you will face the full wrath of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
“Guardian Nigeria has tried to withdraw their own report but it is not enough. Today, they are reporting gunmen while yesterday they reported it was ESN.
“Today’s rejoinder from Guardian Nigeria as can be seen from screenshots here after last night broadcast is not enough.
“I am Simon Ekpa, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s disciple on Biafra Restoration.”
