One of the leaders of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Chilota Dunu, in Agwu area of Enugu State, has reacted to the killing of innocent IPOB members in Aba by security operatives.
The members were having a peaceful protest on the street over the detention of their supreme leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Dunu expressed shock at the frequency of attack on IPOB members by security operatives and wondered the motive behind Kanu’s continued detention.
He stated that he could not understand why the Nigerian government finds it very difficult to obey the order of its own Court.
Dunu said he is speaking up in support of higher voices of their leaders through their global spokesperson, Emma Powerful, who has condemned attacks on innocent members protesting peacefully.
“The Nigeria government and her security agencies enjoy killing IPOB members as if we are ants. Nigeria’s government intimidates the judiciary never to give justice to any case on extrajudicial killing, illegal abduction, and forceful disappearance of IPOB members. Irrespective of all these provocations, IPOB has remained peaceful”, Emma Powerful had earlier said.
According to reports from Aba, there were no fewer than five members of IPOB, killed during the attack last Friday.
The protest said to have taken off from East Street and Ngwa road axis through the Azikiwe road and Ama Ogbonna was peaceful until the combined team of security agents comprising soldiers and policemen allegedly blocked them as they marched from Ama Ogbonna junction to Osusu road.
The IPOB members were said to have defied the security order to disperse and began demand the release big their leader by chanting “obey Court order, release our leader, respect your own Court, the Court has freed our leader FG why holding him.”
