Abiriba Conference: Monarch Condemns Army’s Invasion, Harassment Of Biafran Women

Abiriba condemns Army brutality

The Biafra Writers’ Forum, a media arm of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu wishes to condemn in its entirety, the brutal harassment and molestation of IPOB women who had peacefully convened for a general conference in Abiriba, Abia state by agents of the Nigerian army.
It was widely reported that the Nigerian army armed with sophisticated weapons invaded the Abiriba Stadium where these innocent women gathered for the conference and started molesting them in an unprofessional manner which resulted in the women going unclad.

While it was noted that the women conducted themselves in a highly respected and peaceful manner, we wondered what the Nigerian security operatives wishes to gain by defying all ethics and swooping and illegally arresting unarmed women merely exercising their rights to freedom of assembly.
One wonders what threat or danger the women posed to the Nigerian government and residents of Abia state such that will warrant the ill-mannered and brutal treatment meted out on these women if not that the Nigerian army out of sheer ignorance and disregard to the rule of law, deliberately acted to disrupt their activities.

Across the country, allegations of abuses including arbitrary arrests and detention, torture, forced disappearance, and extrajudicial killings continue to trail security operations in Nigeria yet the authorities are unperturbed by the growing concerns of threat to lives and gross violation of human rights by the Nigerian security agencies.
