NEWS: ‘Did killers leave Kuje Prisons to attack Owo Catholic church, then return to Abuja?’ – IPOB faults DHQ.
The self determination group claimed that the names published were fabricated and false to exonerate the real assailants.
The press release partly read: “As the Nigerian army releases their falsehood, fabricated and concocted names, photos of terrorists accused as the attackers of Owo Catholic Church massacre, we the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) wish to tell the Nigeria Government and its compromised security agencies that they are liars.
“IPOB worldwide was waiting for them to come out with these statements to deceive the gullible minds in the society thinking that everybody in Nigeria is shallow-minded. Nigerian army thinks that their usual deception will continue to make headway.
“How could the Nigerian army descend so low to cook up this kind of lies to the public without shame? It’s so sad that in their lies they can’t even lie intelligently.
“The massacre of Owo Catholic faithful happened on Sunday 5th of June, 2022 and Kuje prison attack happened on 5th July 2022.
“The Nigerian army claimed that fictitious names they mentioned were escapees from Kuje prison. Will it be that the named persons travelled from Abuja to Owo to massacre the people at the Church and afterwards returned back to Kuje prison yard? The Nigerian army should please explain more and stop dragging themselves into the mud.
“It is now crystal clear to all and sundry that all the insurgency, terrorist attacks, unknown gunmen and all criminal activities in the South-East and South-West were cover-up by the Nigerian government through her Security Agencies.”
The Mazi Nnamdi Kanu-led group, therefore, called on the international community to intervene and hold the Nigerian government responsible for insecurity in the country.
“The Foreign Missions and other Agencies in Nigeria; Canadian mission, Israeli Ambassador, Italian Ambassador, Germany mission, Russian mission, China, Japan, Australia, Britain commission, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Intersociety and other reputable Human Rights organisations should hold Nigeria Government responsible for all the sponsored insecurity.
“The above fictitious names of the supposed Owo Catholic faithful killers published are most likely innocent people or the prisoners,” it added.
