Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned the continued detention of their colleagues by the operatives of the Direcotrate for State Security (DSS) in Abuja.
They expressed their reservations after visiting their leader Nnamdi Kanu in Kuje prison since last year.
The group alleged that it is wrong and against all known laws of the world that any one should be detained for these number of days without charging them to the court of competent jurisdiction.
The IPOB allegation was contained in statement signed by its media AMD publicity secretary, Emma Powerful and made available to the media via e-mail saying that their members who are being detained were kidnapped by the DSS.
The statement reads, “We are in doubt if Justice Udeh, Bright Chimezie Ishinwa, Moses Agbo and two others who were kidnapped since 29th june 2016 because they visited our leader in Kuje prison are still alive”.
“We are wondering why Britain, USA and other countries of the civilised world are still keeping quiet as flagrant abuse of human rights is going on in Nigeria under Tue present administration”.
“IPOB is calling upon civilised nations of Europe, America, Asia and Australia to impose punitive sanctions against regime henchmen in Nigeria starting with travel ban for all Nigerian ministers until they obey their own laws written in their own constitution”.
They alleged that Nigeria government and her security agencies especially the soldiers and the DSS are doing everything within their reach to exterminate the lives of IPOB members and Biafrans.
“We are calling upon the world leaders, men and women of good conscience around the globe to prevail upon the Nigeria government led by APC to charge our members to court if they are still alive”.
