Release IPOB members now, they are innocent, Enugu Group urges security operatives

An Enugu based sociopolitical human rights organisation, Transparency Watch (TW) has condemned the clash between the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Nigerian security operatives in Emene Enugu yesterday.

In a statement signed by the group’s spokesperson, Ambassador David C Ani, and made available to newsmen, Transparency Watch condemned the attack on the group, describing it as ‘an unwarranted attack innocent and harmless youths’.

Ambassador Ani further argued that the group have freedom of association as citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

He further advised that the arrested 22 members be released unconditionally by the DSS.

The TW Spokesperson then urged President Muhammadu Buhari to look into the issues of IPOB in the country with his high security experience to avoid creating another security issue in the Southern part of Nigeria, which will not go well for the country at this critical time.

Ani also tasked the Governor of Enugu State, Dr Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to make sure peace is restored in the state to make Enugu more conducive for the residents.
