The Nigerian Army has debunked speculations that the
Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI) and the Department of State Service
(DSS) created and funded the Biafra National Guard (BNG) to enforce the
sit-at-home order, in a bid to discredit the Indigenous People of Biafra
(IPOB).

 

It claimed Kalu Odinakachi is responsible for the
“mischievous submission”.

 

A statement signed by Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu,
the Director, Army Public Relations, sent on Saturday read in part: “It must be
abundantly clarified that this spurious allegation is unfounded and could be
absolutely described as a hoax.”

 

It added that “the activities of IPOB/ESN have undoubtedly
assumed a violent dimension.

 

“This unimaginable level of violence is oiled with
propaganda and disinformation to whip-up sentiments and draw sympathy from
unsuspecting citizens in the region.”

 

The Nigerian Army added that “these spineless and
irresponsible actions targeted at the very people they claim they want to
liberate, clearly unmask their heinous and directionless agenda for Ndigbos.”

 

In denying the claims that the DMI and DSS are sponsoring
BNG, the Army said “realising the futility, hollowness and public rejection of
their violent agitation, they resorted to twisting the narrative in the region
to galvanize local support.

 

“Their wild allegation that BNG and UGN were an overt
operation by the DMI and DSS is not only laughable but remains largely elusive
and a ploy to diminish the public support the NA is savouring in the ongoing
exercises.”

 

The Nigerian Army assured the people of the South East that
they will step up efforts to “to rid the region of criminal elements
masquerading as BNG and UGM. We encourage members of the public to provide
actionable information to security agencies as the Exercises progress.”
