Nigeria’s internal security agency, the Department of State Services, claims that two of its officials were killed by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a separatist group that is seeking a sovereign state for the five South-East states of Anambra, Abia, Imo, Enugu and Ebonyi.

In a statement seen by Lagos Times, the spokesperson of the DSS, Peter Afunnaya said that its patrol team was attacked on August 23, 2020 in Emene, Enugu state by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

According to Mr Afunnaya, the DSS lost two personnel in the alleged unprovoked attack. The statement ended with: “The Service hereby condoles with families of the departed officers and also prays for the repose of their souls.

“However, all measures have been put in place to ensure that their killers and everyone involved in this dastardly act are promptly apprehended and brought to justice. Consequently, a full scale investigation will be carried out with regard to the incident.

“Once again, the Service reaffirms its commitment to assiduously work with other security agencies to maintain public safety and order. It, therefore urges law abiding citizens and residents to go about their normal businesses without fear.”
