Federal Government Frees Suspected IPOB Members Arrested In 2020
Suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have regained freedom after being in Federal Government's detention.
Recall that Nigerian Army on February 27, 2020 arrested some suspected members of the secessionist group at the Imo River community in Abia State.
The victims, who were held at the 14 Brigade Nigerian Army Ohafia Abia State, includes Sunday Nwafor, 59; Uzonwanne Ejiofor, 48; and Wilfred Dike, 36.
Meanwhile, Amnesty International, in a statement released on Wednesday night, charged the Federal Government to release information about other victims who are in detention.
It also called on the Federal Government to grant the families and lawyers access to the victims in detention.
Amnesty International also appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to charge the victims to a court or release them in the absence of any legal authority used to justify their continued detention.
The statement reads, “Amnesty International urges Nigerian authorities to provide information about the status of other victims of enforced disappearance and incommunicado detention, grant their families and lawyers access to them, charge them to court, or release them in the absence of any legal authority used to justify their continued detention.”
