Following the insecurity in Anambra state and it’s environs, the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) calls in the Anambra State Governor to arrest, investigate and prosecute Anambra State Homeland Security Commissioner, Chikodili Anara, a.k.a Igbakigba, for his involvement in the rising insecurity spate in some communities across Anambra State.
The press release was issued on 4 June Emma Powerful, IPOB media public secretary. In the press release, Powerful noted that Anambra Homeland Security Commissioner, Chikodi should be held responsible for all atrocities committed in the state.
The communities that were affected by insecurity include: Isuana ocha town, Ebeneve town, Achalla town, Amanuke town, Ugbene town, Ukwulu town, Nando town, Igbariam town. These communities are found in Awka North, South, and Oyi local government.
IPOB maintains that Anambra State Governor must investigate Chikodili’s relationship with some criminals stooges operating at all named communities and Ogbaru.
The state reads, “We maintain that Chikodili Anara, aka Igbakigba, is sponsoring these criminals operating in these communities. He should be questioned about what is happening at Isiodo, Ugwuaborshi, and Achalla.”
Chikodili should tell the governor about the miscreants, “who are operating near his sister’s house and those who climbed on top of trees monitoring when people are coming.”
The press release stated that Igbakigba is aware of the criminal camps at Ugwuaborshi and Isiodo in the areas where they operate. The local security lead Chikodili’ under the watchful eyes of Nigeria’s compromised security agents never attack these criminal camps, why is this so? “They all have shared in the ramson these criminals collect from their victim,.” Emma stated in the communiqué.
IPOB argued that the Commissioner of homeland security Mr Anara, must explain why his security outfit refused to chase away the aforementioned criminals and stated that they are partners in crime.
Emma said, “Some unscrupulous elements used my name, Emma Powerful to dupe some politicians, and that is what is happening with Igbakigba with those who visited him. Those people claimed that they are Emma Powerful or that Emma Powerful sent them to dupe people. Such people are criminals and kidnappers and are trying to blackmail IPOB, ESN, and Emma Powerful.”
“Again, those people he mentioned in Anambra State who were arraigned at a court case, I, Powerful don’t know them. Igbakigba, you must answer questions about what is happening in these communities because everyone knows your role in these criminal camps terrorizing our people.”
“Although Mazi Chikodili Anara, aka Igbakigba, recently denied an attempt of blackmail against Emma Powerful. He was reacting to our exposition of his atrocities. I don’t know who he mentioned in his denial statement that he had a court case.
‘IPOB has no other media director than Emma Powerful, who is still serving as the Media Director. I do not do the bidding of individuals but the bidding and interest of IPOB who serves the great people of Biafra.”
“Moreso, Igbakigba should save his energy because Emma Powerful and IPOB will never meet him for any security dialogue and If the government of Anambra State fails to call Igbakigba to order for his involvement in the growing crime and insecurity in Anambra State, ESN will call him to order.”
“In fact, ESN Operatives has been given special permission and orders to ensure they bring Igbakigba and Co to answer for their crimes unless the Governor, Prof. Soludo calls for his investigation and possible arrest.”
“Igbakigba is the sponsor of many criminal activities and causes of insecurity happening around Ogbaru because of oil bunkering. Igbakigba must have been aware of those who attacked the US Embassy staff convoy because his boys control the security around Ogbaru.”
“Many kidnapping and car snatching operations within Anambra and Imo State were done under Igbakigba’s nose. Some of the cars snatched were dismantled and sold in parts following his instructions”
“We are sure of what we are saying about this man and his group. Professor Soludo must investigate Igbakigba if he is serious about curtailing the insecurity situation in Anambra State.”
“Until Chikodili Anara, aka Igbakigba and his criminal gangs, are investigated and apprehended, IPOB will continue to expose and follow up on him and other criminals in government in Biafra Land.”
