The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned the continued incarceration of the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capital Oil and Gas, Ifeanyi Ubah, describing it as part of the plots aimed at frustrating Igbo businessmen.

Speaking through a statement made available to journalists in Awka, signed by the IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, the group warned that if anything happened to Ubah, those keeping him in custody should be prepared to face the wrath of the group.

The statement reads: “We want the DSS to know that an attack on Ifeanyi Ubah is an attack on Biafra; the DSS should know that we are watching on this matter and must continue following it until it gets to its logical conclusion.

“We have been informed by IPOB intelligence unit that this Ifeanyi Uba arrest by the DSS was the perfection of hard economic policies against our people and strangulation of Igbo businessmen in Nigeria.

“The grand plan to stop every business controlled by our people in Nigeria is eating deep into Nigerian economy.

“Arresting Dr. Ifeanyi Uba because of his legitimate business proves to all and sundry that we are no more needed in the contraption called Nigeria.

“We want to state it categorically clear to all the Northern dominated DSS and other politicians that nothing should happen to our brother, Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah because he committed no crime against anybody or Nigeria state.

“In line with this, we warn that Ifeanyi Uba should be released before it is too late. We cannot afford to watch them continue to humiliate and intimidate him for no just cause.”

IPOB further claimed that its intelligence unit had uncovered a grand plot to kill businesses in Igbo land, adding that such actions were indicative that the people of the area were no longer needed in Nigeria.

The group wondered why a court of competent jurisdiction would order the release of Ubah yet the DSS continued to detain him.

While describing as pathetic, the silence of well meaning Nigerians who are keeping mum over the continued damage the DSS is causing Nigeria, the group vowed to resist any of such policies that are against the people of the area.
