Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe has said that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and other pro-Biafra agitators are behind the killing of security operatives in the Southeast. He said the crimes were perpetrated by ‘fifth columnists imported into Igboland’. Abaribe noted that the major goal was to destabilize Igboland. “Anybody, who is seeing all these problems in southeast as coming from the IPOB, anyone trying to pin the insecurity situation in southeast to IPOB or MASSOB is making a mistake. We do not think so,” Abaribe said. “Those of us from the southeast here know that this is nothing but fifth columnists imported into Igboland to destabilise Igboland. This is because Igboland is the safest place that we had in this country’’, he added.
