The Commander of Ebubeagu security outfit in Imo State, Mr Izuchukwu Akuegbulanwa aka Aka Ogwu has been declared wanted by the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), for the murder of 14 youths in Otulu and Awo-Mmamma area of the state.

The group also placed a N2 million bounty on him.

A statement by IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, said the Eastern Security Network, ESN, in Imo State has been given a matching order to “fish out” the Ebubeagu Commander in the state.

The separatist group also linked the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma to the killings in the state.

The statement reads partly: “Hope Uzodinma of Imo State is killing his people in honour of his agreement with the caliphate and consistently lies to the public.

“The head of this murderous militia named Ebube-Agu in Imo State is one drug and cult leader returnee from Mozambique, Mr Izuchukwu Akuegbulanwa {Aka Ogwu}. As a result of his murderous terrorist activities against our people, IPOB hereby declares this Ebube-Agu Commander in Imo State wanted. He is now a wanted person in Biafra land.

“Anybody who gives useful information about him and what will lead to the capture of this murderer will get a reward of 2 million Naira from IPOB. ESN Imo State Command has also been given a matching order to look for him to account for the innocent blood of Biafrans his criminal gang has wasted.”

The deceased were killed by operatives of Ebubeagu while returning from a wedding.

However, the security outfit and security agents claimed those killed were criminals.

The Department of State Services, DSS, classified those killed as members of ESN and not wedding guests.

DSS disclosed that the youths were killed during an exchange of fierce gunfire with a joint security team.
