Police arrests 57 Pro-Biafra group agitators

The Biafra Zionists Federation (BZF), had alleged that policemen from Ogui Division in Enugu raged their meeting venue and took away 57 of its members.

But, the police Command spokesman, Daniel Ndukwe, said the agitators were only invited for quizzing but freed when nothing implicating was found on them.

Meanwhile, the pro-Biafra groups were urged by the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Enugu, Most Rev. Callistus Onaga, against boosting war drums in Igboland.

Police arrests 57 Pro-Biafra group agitators

The sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was somewhat observed in Anambra, Abia, and Imo states.

BZF Leader Benjamin Onwuka said:

They arrested 57 of our members this (Sunday) morning. We were preparing to go for our Biafra parade.

We are non-violent people; we are peaceful agitators. They should be released immediately, unconditionally, without charge; they committed no crime.

But Ndukwe refuted the arrest, saying the 57 agitators assembled unlawfully at Owerri Road in Ogui and were taken to the Police command headquarters for querying.

After nothing incriminating was found on them, the Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Aliyu, addressed and cautioned them to go home and maintain peace. They all left happily, the police spokesman explained.
