NIGERIAN POLICE ARRESTED IPOB MEMBERS IN EBONYI STATE

NIGERIAN POLICE ARRESTED IPOB MEMBERS IN EBONYI STATE

The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Ebonyi state chapter on the 22nd of May, 2017 organised and went out on evangelism in Ohaukwu LGA of Ebonyi state, to further inform and sensitize the Biafrans in the state especially those within the vicinity about the restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra, and also to enlighten them on the forthcoming SIT AT HOME billed to take place on 30th May, 2017 in honor of  the  Biafran fallen heros and heroines who were murdered during the Nigeria/ Biafra war of 1967-1970 and and those recently murdered by the Nigerian military forces.


Recall that the Indigenous People Of Biafra led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu slated every 30th May as a day set aside to remember the Biafra fallen heroes. While on an awareness rally on Monday 22nd May, the Nigerian Police disrupted their rally and arrested many. Mazi Chimaobim Friday was among those that were arrested alongside the coordinator.

The evangelism which kicked off at Eke Izhia was aimed to go round the city and even beyond.

The state coordinator with his Executive, who could not waste time when the news filtered went to the Ebonyi State Police Area Command to ascertain why his members were arrested, was equally harrased, beaten up and detained but was later released after so many hours but they refused granting freedom to the initially arrested persons of the IPOB who were going on evangelism. The IPOB State  Public Relations Officer Ebonyi state chapter, who spoke to family writers correspondent said that,  "The evangelism started peacefuly and not long after we started, the Nigeria police came and disrupted it and as well arrested some of our members, effort to go and seek for their release by the state coordinator and some state executives who were available at the moment got us into detention by the police in their station; though they later released us unconditionally after so many hours but refused to let go of our members which they arrested earlier"

Nevertheless, the Indigenous people of Biafra are calling for the immediate and unconditional release of our members in Ebonyi State police custody. We call on human rights bodies to as a matter of urgency join their voices in demanding the immediate and unconditional release of IPOB members in the police custody.
