IPOB condemns alleged indiscriminate arrest of Abia youths

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned the indiscriminate arrest of youths in Abia State, alleging that it is part of an ethnic cleansing agenda against the Igbo people.

According to IPOB, the Nigerian Army has abducted hundreds of innocent civilians in Abia State, claiming they are searching for IPOB and ESN operatives.

IPOB in a statement on Saturday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, denied any involvement in the attack and murder of soldiers at Obikabia Military checkpoint on May 30th.

Instead, they claimed that the incident was a false flag operation carried out by the Nigerian Army in collaboration with some kidnappers.

The group has called on the Nigerian Army and the Abia State governor to release all illegally abducted citizens and to investigate the incident thoroughly.

 IPOB also urged Igbo leaders to protect their youths and not allow political correctness to lead to their massacre.

“We condemn the indiscriminate arrest and detention of our youths,” said Powerful, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary.

 “We demand their immediate release and an end to the ethnic cleansing agenda against our people.”
