IPOB accuses DSS of secretly killing its members

29 August 2016, 17:34

Owerri - The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused the Department of State Services (DSS) of secretly killing its members.

The group in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful. said the security members have also failed to charge all its members arrested to court or allowed family members to visit them while in custody.

Part of the statement read: “The security agents and the Nigeria secret police the DSS have started going round the cities of Biafra land arresting those suspected to be members of IPOB.  “We wondered why the federal government will be calling for negotiation and still sending the security agents to be going house to house to search for the members of IPOB and killing them secretly without traces.”

“The DSS and other security agents went to the house of the IPOB members and arrested one Chukwu Obasi Sunday who is living in Nnewi Ichi in Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra State, this was at an odd hour.

“They arrested and shot him on his legs and now detained him with bullets wounds in DSS cell.”
They also accused the DSS for being responsible for the death of one Chidiebere Onwudiwe, the national coordinator of IPOB in Biafraland and Justice O. Ude who were arrested three months ago.

“They have not been taking them to court, and nobody has seen or heard from them, we are sure they have been killed by the DSS, if they are still alive the DSS would have been taking them to court or released them on bail as they committed no crime against the government of Nigeria.”

IPOB added: “We are crying to the entire world to come for our rescue because the Nigeria government and her security agencies programmed the strategy to be going house to house search arresting and stifling lives out of the members of IPOB.

“We also use this medium to inform the whole world the torture and intimidation our members are under going in the hands of the Nigerian government and her security agents that prompted the untimely death of most of our members.”
