Police reject IPOB’s claim that they killed the monarch of Imo state

Posted by

Eze Joe Ochulor, traditional ruler of the Otulu Community of Amaumara Mbaise in Ezinihite Local Government Area of Imo State, was allegedly killed by personnel of the Nigeria Police Force, according to IPOB.

On Thursday, IPOB spokeswoman Emma Powerful issued a statement denying the group’s role in the murder.

This statement was part of a larger effort by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to discredit the Nigerian Police for their piecemeal and confusing account of IPOB’s alleged role in the abduction and murder of the monarch of Imo State.

Eze Joe Ochulor, traditional ruler of the Otulu Community in Imo State’s Ezinihite Local Government Area, was assassinated, according to the Nigerian Police. The perpetrators are believed to be members of IPOB.

“Some indigenous members of the community alleged that his attackers were IPOB members, and he may have been killed because of his association with one of their indigenous people, Chidiebere, who went to see the late traditional ruler after receiving death threats from some IPOB members,” the Nigerian Police said.
