The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has called for the disbandment of Ebubeagu security outfit in Imo State over what it described as atrocious killings.

While condemning the killing of the youths from Otulu town, who were returning from a traditional marriage ceremony, which Ebubeagu allegedly carried out, the pro-Biafra group said the security outfit was established to fight political enemies in Igboland by the state governors.

It added that since their establishment, Ebubeagu operatives had not engaged Islamic terrorists masquerading as herdsmen that have sacked so many villages and settlements in Igboland; instead, they were killing innocent youths.

MASSOB, in a statement issued by its leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu, on Tuesday, “They (Ebubeagu) are primarily established as a witch-hunting outfit to fight political enemies and non-violence pro-Biafra agitators.

“MASSOB described Ebubeagu security outfit as a Dracula evil and agents of death established by Imo state government.

“MASSOB warns Governor Hope Uzodinma to immediately disband his Ebubeagu security outfit now, or we shall see their activities in Biafra land as a declaration of internal war. The so-called Ebubeagu security outfit must cease their operation in Imo state now.”

The PUNCH had reported that gunmen suspected to be operatives of Ebubeagu Security outfit allegedly opened fire and killed seven wedding guests in Otulu town, Imo State, on Sunday.
