The Indigenous People of Biafra has accused the Nigerian security operatives attached to Ebonyi of arresting and killing youths in the state. 

According to the group, the victims were labelled members of its militia arm, the Eastern Security Network (ESN) and taken to a slaughterhouse for murder. 

The pro-Biafra secessionist group revealed this in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful on Friday.
