Security agencies order mass arrests, killings in Imo communities – IPOB.

Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)  has alleged mass arrest and secret killings of indigenes of Orsuihitekwa, Nkwere and Orlu in Orlu Local Government Area of  Imo State by a combined team of Nigeria security agencies.

The group, in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, claimed security agents seven months ago invaded Orsuihitekwa and environs with armoured tanks  and fighter jets searching for its members who they accused of being behind the killings in the area.

He said the invasion led to the death of many innocent people even as he accused Governor Hope Uzodimma of being insensitive to the plight of those killed.

“It is yet to be reported in the media. So many people ran away abandoning their ancestral home and lands, but Uzodinma doesn’t care about the fate of these innocent folks. Few months back some villagers returned  to the village only to discover that their village had been taken over by hoodlums and bad gangs.

“But unfortunately, when these innocent folks alerted security agents of this sad development, instead of the double-faced and compromised security agents going after the bad boys, they rather resorted to mass arrest of the innocent youths in the community after a gun duel with the hoodlums. What a country! The mass arrest of innocent youths of Orsuihiteukwa took place on December 13, 2021 and  26 people from the community were involved in the arrest.”

Powerful called for the unconditional release of all those wrongfully arrested by security operatives in the state.

“These people are innocent and should be released unconditionally. They are not criminals as being tagged by the security agencies. Nigeria security must stop unleashing mayhem on the people  because they are Igbo or Biafrans. The corrupt politicians who connive with the security agencies to oppress our people should be ready for the day of accountability for it will surely come.”
