The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, has denied killing a medical doctor and husband of late Dora Akunyili, the ex Director-General of NAFDAC, Chike Akunyili saying the killing is politically motivated.

In a statement by its spokesperson Emma Powerful, it stated that it had no reason to kill the renowned and first-class medical doctor revealing that Dr Akunyili was killed by same people who poisoned the late Dora Akunyili.

In a viral video, Dr Akunyili was killed by gunmen on his way from Onitsha to Enugu State after a meeting in honour of his late wife on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the statement by Powerful reads partly: “Those who killed Dora Akunyili’s husband killed his wife with poison are Fulani because she exposed Yar’adua’s death for Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to take over as President of failed Nigeria. They know themselves, Those that conspired to poisoned prof. Dora Akunyili, they’re contesting the governorship election in Anambra State today.

“We have no issues with Chike Akunyili and we don’t know him, those behind this act must stop this and stop using IPOB name, we don’t want anybody to blame IPOB because we must get them, this is pure political assassination going on in Anambra State now and it been perfected by Nigeria DSS security agents are doing this to paint IPOB back in the face of support and encouragement we are getting from our people.

“We know their plans and gimmick to discourage Biafrans who are encouraging and supporting us but it can’t work for them, in the near future those committing these atrocities in Imo and Anambra state will hear from IPOB and our people should not blame us because we must get them.”
