Biafra: IPOB raises alarm over alleged arrest, missing members in Enugu

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Wednesday alleged that several of their members were arrested in Enugu State, with their whereabouts unknown.

IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, in a statement, said the unspecified number of their members were arrested around Nike Area of Enugu State, en-route Nsukka.

He further alleged that the members have been moved to an unknown location for possible execution.

He claimed that “The state sponsored criminal abduction, kidnapping, torture and execution of defenceless citizens by the Fulani terror-herdsmen is ongoing in Enugu State right now.

“It was reported that they have now been moved to an unknown location for possible execution.

“We are placing all diplomatic missions to Nigeria, especially the United States, European Union and African Union, on notice with regards to their obligation to report these levels of unimaginable atrocity by the Nigerian state against Biafrans to their home countries and relevant agencies.

“It is in the best interest of all that all those abducted are released immediately.”

However, when contacted, the Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu said the command was not aware of such arrest.
