The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Thursday, told the Federal Government to halt “the incessant harassment and arrest of its members and their families in South-East.”
It also called on South-East and South-South governors, particularly Ebonyi State government, to prevail on the security agents in their states to release IPOB and their family members, particularly its Ebonyi State Coordinator, Mazi Igwe Ogbonnaya, without further delay.
The pro-Biafra group said it is particularly upset by the alleged recent arrest of its Coordinator in Ebonyi State; and the intimidation of an innocent woman who recently put to bed in Oji River Council Area of Enugu State by security operatives in the guise of searching for Radio Biafra Station.
In a statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the group told the government and her security operatives to stop testing its will.
IPOB’s statement also alleged that the “Police, Army and DSS once again have started their normal house-to-house search of IPOB family members and those suspected to be IPOB supporters in Biafraland.
“We, the global family of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, ably led by our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, hereby demand immediate stoppage of the incessant harassment and arrest of IPOB family members in different parts of Biafraland.
