The Indigenous People of Biafra has condemned the continued detention of the Chairman and CEO of Capital Oil and Gas, Ifeanyi Ubah, saying should anything happen to him those keeping him in detention should be prepared to face the wrath of the group.
IPOB said, “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”.
The claimed that the arrest of Ubah was part of the plots to frustrate Igbo businessmen.
In a press statement issued by IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, the group claimed its intelligence unit had uncovered a grand plot to kill businesses in Igboland.
It said 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 Department of State Services would continue to hold him.
The statement read in part, “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 ground plan to stop every business controlling by our people in Nigeria is eating deep in Nigeria economy because our people are the major businessmen in Nigeria today.
“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.
