Abia - The Federal Government, through the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, has released all the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB who were arrested by various security agencies in Aba, Abia State.
Consequently, the release of their members threw the IPOB members into jubilation in various parts of Onitsha, Anambra state, although the jubilation did not take place publicly.

In a press statement issued to newsmen yesterday in Onitsha, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful who confirmed that their members have been released, said all IPOB members worldwide under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Director of Radio Biafra were commending the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF and all those who have common sense to understand that all those arrested in Aba must be released.
Powerful contended that the release of their members was a good omen since the plight of IPOB is only for the restoration of Biafra and not to take over the rulership of Nigeria from the incumbent Muhammadu Buhari-led government .
According to the statement, “We also urge the AGF and his team who understand the meaning of non-violent approach towards the liberation of those in bondage in this country to extend such a gesture to other members who were detained in different prisons and security cells in the country, including their leader, Nnamdi Kanu by releasing them without any conditional attachment.”
