BUHARI’S MINISTER FINALLY REVEALED THE OWNER OF THE WEAPON IMPORTED FROM TURKEY TO NIGERIA.

The minister of defence, Mansur Dan Ali, says IPOB is determined to bring confusion in the country

– He states that the group is supposed to explore constitutional provisions in making their grievances known

– The minister says the Operation Python Dance currently being carried out in the southeast is not targeted at the pro-Biafra group

The federal government has alleged that the double barrel rifles intercepted by the Nigerian Customs Service at the tin can port were imported into the country by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The minister of defence, Mansur Dan Ali, made the allegation in an interview on Channels TV published on Thursday, October 12.

Ali said that the group was responsible for the importation of arms from Turkey into the country.

He said this was one of the reasons why the federal government labeled the group as a terrorist organisation.

The minister said intelligence reports had shown that the group was determined to bring confusion in the country.

He said IPOB should have explored constitutional provisions in making their grievances known instead of trying to cause chaos in Nigeria by producing weapons.

The minister also said the military operation tagged Operation Python Dance currently being carried out in the southeast was not targeted at the pro-Biafra group.

Meanwhile, commissioner of police in Abia, Anthony Ogbizi, has said lethal weapons, including petrol bombs and one double-barrel gun, were recovered during the October 8 raid on the residence of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Ogbizi told newsmen on Thursday, October 12, that the items were recovered during a joint operation by security personnel in the state. According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), he said that the petrol bombs were found in buckets and incriminating documents and letters, concerning IPOB’s activities and plans, were also recovered during the raid.

He said that the raid was carried out based on an intelligence report, regarding the continued activities of some members of the group.
