While the security agencies claimed they invaded the headquarters of the ESN and killed the deceased, the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) which owns the security outfit says the late commander was ambushed and murdered in cold blood.

The secessionist group yesterday renamed some infrastructures in the state after the slain warlord.

Mbaka who had earlier warned President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Hope Uzodinma of extrajudicially killing members of IPOB berated security agencies, asking it to deploy same measures in tackling woes befalling the nation.

The military, the police, the SSS, how is it difficult for you to arrest one person?,” the Catholic cleric who spoke during a programme at his Adoration Ministry in Enugu asked. “What of the person you killed is innocent of what he is accused of?”

“You killed Ikonso, you are parading his body all over as if you have done whatever…,go and kill poverty for us, kill unemployment for us, kill insecurity for us. You know how to kill, wicked people,” he added.
