IPOB claims that the DSS is perfecting its plans by creating "imaginary" factions of the group namely RE-IPOB and TRIPOB.
The statement signed by IPOB spokespersons, Emma Mmezu and Clifford Iroanya, reads:
"We have it on authority, that the decision to use the DSS to entertain Nigerians on purported factions in the great IPOB was taken at the presidency, in order to humour starving citizens, and take their minds away from the killings and excruciating poverty ravaging the land.
"The fact remains, that the singular choice of attempting to create imaginary splinter groups is a total waste of time, energy and resources.
"It is lost on the public, how the actors in this melodrama are the only people yet to note that they are only making compound fools of themselves.
"This development, says so much, about the quantity, calibre and intelligence of the characters who run the intelligence services. What a tragedy."
