Arase declared 'wanted' 24 hours after retirement

24 June 2016, 13:10

Owerri - Twenty-four hours after his retirement as Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase has been declared wanted by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), reports Vanguard.

The group has directed all its members worldwide to closely monitor the movements and whereabouts of Arase, to facilitate his arrest and arraignment in the International Criminal Court, ICC, as soon as an international bench warrant is issued for his arrest.

The group said the essence of keeping surveillance on Arase’s movements was because he allegedly presided over the extra-judicial killings of over 1 000 Biafrans between July, 2015 and May 30, 2016.

Iroegbu said Arase;s picture has been posted on the group's website for those who do not know him.
