,Department of State Services (DSS) officials have exposed a plot by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to bomb Nigeria’s largest computer market the Computer Village in Lagos State.
According to the DSS, Ipob is planning to blow up the market in Ikeja as part of a programme to make Nigeria ungovernable and force the government to negotiate secession with it. Since last year, Ipob has been campaigning to recreate the defunct state of Biafra and has been agitating for the release of its leader Nnamdi Kanu.
One DSS spokesman named a certain Chidiebere Onwudiwe, a graduate of mechanical and chemical engineering, who is currently under arrest, as the mastermind behind the plot. Apparently, he is working with foreign and local members of IPOB to perfect the plot and there were further plans to bomb worship centres and parks during the coming Eid el Fitri festivities.
