The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has stated that it produces its weapons locally.
The statement came as a response to the Department of State Service (DSS). The secret service had warned that IPOB was plotting to attack banks to get money to purchase arms.
The secessionist group however denied the allegation, saying that members of the group were not criminals, but freedom fighters.
“We are not looking for money to buy arms because we produce our arms locally,” IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, said.
The group assured banks in Alaigbo of their safety, adding that the allegations were deliberate to blackmail the Eastern Security Network and IPOB.
“The DSS is propelling this wicked propaganda to blackmail Eastern Security Network and IPOB, and dent our global reputation.
“IPOB and ESN are not criminals and we have no plans or agenda to touch any institution particularly banks.
“We are not looking for money to buy arms because we produce our arms locally and cannot attack or kidnap anybody for ransom. “We don’t inflict pains on the people we are fighting for their freedom. DSS must stop this rubbish and engage their time on something more meaningful. This poor script cannot fly… ESN has never left its mandate which is to defend Biafra land against Fulani terrorists and killer herdsmen.”
“All banks in Biafraland must be wary of the DSS because it is possible they are planning to sponsor attacks on banks and turn around as usual to blame it on IPOB and ESN.”
