MASS ABDUCTION OF BIAFRANS IN BAYELSA: "I DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY CARRIED MY FATHER TO"--- SON OF VICTIM RAISES ALARM

MASS ABDUCTION OF BIAFRANS IN BAYELSA: "I DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY CARRIED MY FATHER TO"--- SON OF VICTIM RAISES ALARM

By Paul Ihechi Alagba
For Family Writers

Ezeagu Joseph, the eldest son of Mr.  Ezeagu Hillary has raised an outcry over the unknown whereabout of his father ever since he left home to attend an IPOB Meeting in Bayelsa state on Saturday.
   Mr. Hillary Ezeagu, 67, was among scores of Biafran activists bundled away by highly equipped members of the Nigerian Army at Lake View Lodge Okaka, Bayelsa state on October 22, 2016.

According to the young man, Joseph who spoke with Family Writers, the disappearance of Mr. Hillary, the sole bread winner of his family have been grossly felt by the rest of his entire family.
    "My Dad went for the IPOB general meeting at Lake View Hotel on Saturday. Since then we have not set eyes on him again. It was on Sunday morning that we received information that my father have been arrested by Army people," 22year old Joseph told Family Writers.
   "We are completely devastated by this horrible news. My dad has done nothing wrong to deserve this kind of wickedness," he said.
   When asked if he knows the current location where his father and others are being detained, Joseph said: "I don't know where they carried my father to, I don't know his whereabout up till now.
  "Someone told us that the army people have been moving them to different Army Barracks since yesterday, but we have information that they are currently at Okaka Barracks.
  "I'm afraid of going there because they may arrest or kill me there. We really need help to get my dad out" he stated.

   Meanwhile, the abduction of IPOB members numbering not less than one hundred in Bayelsa state have continued to generate outrage among Biafrans, with many already asking for a reform on the peaceful approach of the agitation.
   An activist who escaped the raid narrated how the army officials came with two open vans, which was completely filled up by scores of Biafrans they abducted by the time they left the venue of the incident.
   "I went for the meeting around 6pm. While the meeting was in progress, the army people came to the hotel and asked the hotel attendants to step aside. They started asking us some questions, after which the Commander ordered them to arrest everybody. I managed to escape because of the rowdy scenario.
 "After that, they waited behind for others who will come late. As soon they drop from their Keke or taxi, they immediately arrest them and throw them into their van," the activist who pleaded anonymity revealed.


ALLEGATIONS OF PLANNED EXTRAJUDICIAL EXECUTIONS
 
Reliable sources have revealed that the Nigerian military plans on secretly executing the activists they illegally arrested. It also revealed the intention of the military to tag the activists as cultists and criminals in order to justify their evil plans.
There is need for the international community and all lovers of freedom to rise up against the tyrannical outburst of the Muhammadu Buhari led Nigerian government. Self Determination is the inalienable right of all people; it is not a criminal or capital offence.
