Insecurity in Southeast act of criminality – DSS


The Department of State Services, DSS, has linked the level of insecurity in the Southeast to criminality wrapped around Biafra agitation.

Imo State Director DSS, Wilcox Idaminabo, made this during a one-day stakeholders roundtable organised by Centre for Transparency Advocacy (CTA) on the November 11 governorship election in Imo State.

Idaminabo said the destruction and killings were simply act of criminality and not Biafra agitations.

He summoned all traditional rulers, pastors, and Igbo leaders to always speak up against the evil of insecurity in the southeast.

According to the DSS Director: “What is going on in the Southeast is criminality wrapped around the ideology of Biafra. Biafra is not to kill or destroy because some traditional rulers and religious leaders cannot even stay in their communities. There is no Biafra anywhere.”

“See, when I led operations to Orsu, what we saw was gory, headless bodies, vehicles that had become abandoned, it was terrible.”

Idaminabo queried why during elections in the zone, threats of no elections arise, saying it fuels allegations that it is sponsored by political parties.

Over the past few years he said, the Southeast has been a theatre of insecurity linked to the continued detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Biafra agitation.

The insecurity in the Southeast has led to the killing and kidnap of several people of the region over the years.
