JUST IN: 12 IPOB Members arrested in Enugu by the Nigerian Police

Even as the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB),  have prepared pigeons in Biafran colors to fly across the sky on September 23, for more awareness of their struggle for the release of their imprisoned leader, Nnamdi Kanu. This is first of its kind.

The police in Enugu have cracked down on the IPOB as they arrested no fewer than 12 suspected members of the outlawed group.
According to Vanguard, Mr Ebere Amarizu, the Enugu state command’s spokesman in a statement signed by him and made available to newsmen in Enugu on Tuesday, September 20 said that the suspects were arrested during their ‘sit-at-home’ campaign at the Ogbette Main Market in Enugu.

The statement explained that the suspects allegedly went into the market with a public address system and ordered the traders to observe a sit-at-home directive on Sept. 23.

“Suspects were arrested by our operatives, as the alleged announcement was being carried out and 21 handsets were recovered from them.

“Also recovered, include flags suspected to be that of the group with their insignia, public address systems, one wireless microphone,” the statement said.
The statement also went on to explain that the suspects would be arraigned in court after investigation. Meanwhile, in preparation for September 23, Amarizu said that the command had collaborated with other sister agencies to beef up security in parts of the state so as to forestall any breakdown of law and order.
“We advise the public not to allow themselves to be used under any guise to cause mischief, as anyone caught will be made to face the full wrath of the law,” Amarizu said.
Meanwhile, 16 different groups with bases in the south-western part of Nigeria have reportedly backed the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as the latter plans a massive protest to call attention to the continued detention of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

The groups are fusing under the aegis of Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ) and have said they are throwing their weights behind the open protest.
