RELEASE IGBO PEOPLE DETAINED IN NORTHERN MILITARY FACILITIES, IPOB TELLS FG

The Indigenous People of Biafra have raised the alarm over the unlawful detention of Igbo youths, fathers and mothers in various military facilities in the North, especially in Wawa military barracks, Kainji, Niger State.

The group said the people were secretly arrested in Imo, Anambra, Enugu, Abia, and Ebonyi states and taken to military facilities in the North while some of them were killed.

IPOB in a statement released on Thursday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, titled ‘Nigeria Government And Her Nigeria Security Agents Should Release Igbo People Arrested And Detained In Wawa Military Barracks In Niger State -IPOB’, said the people were unlawfully abducted and moved to the North over a year ago.

The statement read in part that the people were unlawfully abducted and moved to the North one year ago, they were being detained incommunicado, and all efforts made by their lawyers, family and associates were rebuffed by the Nigeria Government and her security agents in the Wawa military barracks of Niger State.

It added that both old and young men, women and ladies since their unlawful abduction without being charged to court, are being prevented from contact with their families, friends and colleagues, they have also been hidden away from lawyers and denied access to legal services, human rights agencies assistance.

IPOB then appeal to the International community to prevail on Nigeria Government and its security agents to discharge all the Igbo people unlawfully arrested without trial from the above-mentioned States, because this act is a purely human rights violation of a particular race, racial profiling, violation of freedom of worship, discrimination and persecution.

The group, therefore, called on the Federal Government to release the Igbos from incarceration in various confinement facilities in the Northern states.
