Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, his lawyer has revealed the names of the IPOB members detained by the military and missing.
Nnamdi’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, in a remark, said the IPOB members were allegedly held hostage by soldiers at a location in Aba, Abia State.
Ejiofor released the names of the detained IPOB members as: Chukwuemaka Umelo (Ejima); Eze Monday; Chibueke Eke; Sunday Isaiah; Gebriel Isaiah; Gentle Odu.
Kanu’s lawyer noted that the six members of the IPOB are a few of the list of numerous members of the group whom their whereabouts are yet to be ascertained.
“It is important that this development is made public to avoid them being killed in mysterious circumstances, akin to the style of operation in the South East, “he also added.
“The situation is very serious. We are appealing for prompt intervention of International Community before things get out of hands.
“Ngwa High School Aba is the same place, Nigeria Military personnel attacked and massacred over 100 IPOB members last year, while praying for my client on a day he was scheduled to appeal in court.
“You can check the Amnesty International’s report that hugely indicted the Nigeria soldiers on the mindless killing of unarmed members of Indigenous People of Biafra, last year at Ngwa High School, where they have now turned to their base.”he said.
