IPOB raises alarm over fresh FG plot to re-arrest recently released members

Four IPOB members arrested alongside Nnamdi Kanu jubilates after being granted bail by Abuja court

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has raised the alarm over a fresh plot by agents of the federal government to allegedly re-arrest four of its members who were recently granted bail after three years of being in prison.

The group said it has uncovered a plot by the military to invade the South-east and some part of South-south again, adding that part of the plan would be to re-arrest its members who were recently granted bail by the Justice Binta Nyako-led court in Abuja.

A press release by the media and publicity secretary of the group, Mr Emma Powerful, which was made available to our news desk in Awka, alleged that the move was geared towards intimidating the people out of pressing for the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who they claimed was whisked away by security operatives on 14 September 2017, after invading his house.

Part of the release read, “Plans are at advanced stages for another possible military invasion of the South East and parts of South-South. We envisage another extra-judicial murderous attack on the homes of Nnamdi Kanu’s co-defendant that was only recently granted bail after spending three years in prison custody for a crime that does not yet exist.”

The quartet of Benjamin Madubugwu, Bright Chimezie, David Nwawuisi and Chidiebere Onwudiwe had recently secured bail more than one year after their co-defendant, Nnamdi Kanu was granted bail by the same court.

IPOB, however, chided the federal government over the purported plot, stressing that, “it is needless to emphasize that Justice Binta Nyako had, pursuant to an application made in open court by IPOB lawyers, placed a ban on any form of threat or invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s co-defendant's homes. The judge ordered that no security personnel should disturb their peace.”

Powerful further stated that “We continue to demand that the military produces Nnamdi Kanu wherever he is being kept. The federal government of Nigeria is yet to formally respond to numerous queries from the British government demanding an explanation on the whereabouts of their citizen.

“The Nigerian army’s involvement in the invasion and massacre of defenceless and unarmed members of IPOB present in Afaraukwu on that fateful day of 14 September 2017 is the irreducible and constant critical point of reference in any discussions regarding the whereabouts of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“It is a matter of common knowledge, backed by quantum and incontrovertible photographic and video evidence, that the murderous military invasion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s home and his abduction therein by the invading soldiers was an occurrence which the international community and responsible human rights bodies, such as Amnesty International had severally indicted the Nigerian military.”
