Within the first place, what risk did the late Gulak represent to our trigger to warrant his elimination? We had nothing in frequent with him and couldn’t have in any method killed him.
“Pointing accusing fingers at IPOB for this barbaric act is just meant to divert consideration away from the true masterminds. This is identical method terrorists in safety uniform commit varied atrocities in South-East and switch round in charge IPOB for his or her crimes simply to tarnish our world popularity.
That is purely a smokescreen to justify their lengthy awaited plan to declare one other particular army operation within the Japanese area to kill extra harmless Biafrans.”

“As soon as once more we urge the illiterate and clearly unintelligent companies masquerades as intelligence companies we have now in Nigeria to please go away IPOB out of their messy incompetence.
