17 Members Missing After Asaba Attack – IPOB




The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has declared 17 of its members missing, after alleged attack on their members in Asaba on Sunday.

The group claimed that its members were having a meeting on Sunday in Okwe Primary School, Asaba, the Delta State capital when some military men declared war on them.

The pro-Biafra group also alleged that the military had been harassing and arresting their members and other Biafra agitators, "who wear Biafra uniform and other Biafra materials, in Asaba and other states in the South-East since Sunday's attack."

IPOB in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Mr Emma Powerful, described the attacks on their members as evil and pure wickedness.

Powerful further noted that the 17 people were whisked away after the attack at the meeting venue at Okwe in Asaba, Delta State.

"We cannot stop the agitation at this stage where freedom is at sight. So, no amount of intimidation, harassment and arrest of our members will deter us.

"The IPOB intelligence unit uncovered heinous plans against our members whom they believe are bent on restoration of Biafra nation.

"The annoying thing about the arrest and shooting of our members is that the Hausa-Fulani terror group is still parading in Nigeria, killing and maiming people at random without any arrest but soldiers and security agencies are arresting Biafrans for doing nothing wrong.

"It is quite sad that the Nigerian government and her security agencies will be pursuing the non-violent group which uses no arms to pursue the restoration of Biafra, while Fulani herdsmen are killing people with impunity, using guns and other dangerous weapons and no security agency has arrested anyone of them.

"We, therefore, call on the international community, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and all human rights organizations, countries and all well-meaning world leaders to prevail on Nigerian government to stop the barbaric attitude of killing our non-violent members by the Nigerian Army and other security agencies, and release our members they arrested in Asaba or charge them to court if they committed any offence."
