21 Jewish Worshippers Arrested At Nnamdi Kanu’s Home In Abia
“The leadership and entire family members of IPOB condemn the abduction of 21 Shalom Church members and other Christian denominations praying in the residence of IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, by Nigerian security operatives on Sunday morning,” IPOB said.
According to a statement by IPOB’s Spokesman, Emma Powerful, the worshippers had gathered to pray and cleanse the compound when the security operatives swooped down on them and whisked them away to the Zone 9 Police Headquarters, Umuahia.
“This is to alert the whole world that the Jewish worshippers praying in Afaraukwu Ibeku at IPOB leader’s residence are currently undergoing severe torture in the hands of Nigeria security agents at the Central Police Station, Umuahia, and Zone 9 Force Headquarters, Ehimiri Estate, Ikot Ekpene Road, Umuahia.
“The Nigerian security agents tortured the Jewish worshippers who came to pray at the compound on Sunday morning without any provocation.
“The unprovoked attack on these innocent worshippers, whose crime was to pray and spiritually sanctify the residence of IPOB leader desecrated when the Nigeria army and other security agencies killed and maimed over 28 innocent unarmed members of IPOB, including the abduction of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, since last year, September.”
IPOB condemned the arrest of the innocent worshippers and demanded their immediate and unconditional release.
The pro-Biafra group also sought the United State of America’s intervention to free the arrested worshippers.
It said the action of the operatives was in clear violation of a pact sealed by US President Donald Trump, and his Nigerian counterpart, Muhammadu Buhari, during the latter’s recent visit to Washington.
IPOB said the arrest amounted to a declaration of war against Christians and part of the hidden agenda to ultimately Islamise Nigeria.
When contacted, the Commissioner of Police, Anthony Ogbizi, confirmed that some persons were arrested at Kanu’s home but refused to disclose the exact number.
He said those arrested were currently being interrogated, adding that the arrest was on suspicion that they were members of the proscribed IPOB group.
