Detains Israeli Filmmakers Arrested By DSS For Supporting IPOB

Report gathered that the three Israeli filmmakers have been arrested by the Department of State Security Service (DSS), over supporting the activities of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

A Zionist activist, Rudy Rochman, filmmaker Noam Leibman and French-Israeli Journalist E. David Benaym were arrested last week when they visited Ogidi village, Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State to shoot a documentary.

The Israelis were in Nigeria to film “We Were Never Lost,” a documentary exploring Jewish communities in African countries such as Kenya, Madagascar, Uganda, and Nigeria.

They took off from Ben Gurion Airport on July 5 and landed in Nigeria the next day.

According to Nigeria’s Foreign Ministry, the Israeli Embassy in Abuja is following the case closely and is in contact with Nigerian authorities.

Residents said the operatives interrogated and detained the crew at a synagogue during Friday night service in Ogidi and were subsequently taken to Abuja.

The filmmakers were aware of the political sensitivity surrounding the filming of the Igbo community.

Last Thursday, the We Were Never Lost” Facebook page stressed: “We do not take any position on political movements as we are not here as politicians nor as a part of any governmental delegations.
