The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB has disclosed that the Otokoto boys are responsible for the killings and beheading of Imo resident.
The group alleged that governor Hope Uzodinma, brought back fraudsters and ritualistic who were chased out of the state during the Otokoto riot of 1996.
This was issued in a statement on Sunday, by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, IPOB asked Imo state indigenes to hold Otokoto boys responsible for future killings and destructions of government facilities in the state.
The outlawed group, challenged Imo state traditional and political elites to be courageous enough to question Uzodinma on why the alleged criminals have made their way back to the state or desist from tagging Eastern Security Network, ESN as assumed killers.
The statement read in parts: “We know their characters, their homes and their stories well, and know-how the assigned governor of Imo State was hobnobbing with them as a Senator, and it was a matter of him becoming the Imo State chief executive for them to return with their boys to hide under the name of the government to continue unleashing terror on the people, the reason for which they were chased out of the state in the first place.
“We want Imo State elders and political elites to ask the state governor, why his government has brought back people that were chased out of the state for their crimes back to continue their atrocious activities?”
