A DSS memo obtained by Pointblanknews.com revealed that the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)/Eastern Security Network (ESN) has acquired Bombs and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) with which to further their subversive activities in the South East.
The memo by the DSS, Imo State command, addressed to the Brigade Commander, 34 Artillery Brigade, Obinze, Owerri West LGA, Imo State, directed that security personnel be deployed to checkpoints in Imo state to conduct thorough search on articulated vehicles to intercept the movement of the items.
The memo signed by Imo State Director of the DSS, I Abdullahi also said, “It-was reliably gathered that the newly acquired items are currently being conveyed from Lagos to an unconfirmed location in Orlu LGA.
