The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has condemned the alleged “barbaric” and “unprofessional conduct” of the Nigerian Army located in Ohafia against women of the group during its conference held in Abiriba, Abia State.
IPOB claimed that, some soldiers stormed the venue of a meeting held by the women in 20 Hilux vans and without “provocation started beating, arresting and tearing the women’s clothes off their bodies.”
The action of the soldiers, IPOB alleged resulted in some of them being “stripped naked before they were taken to their barracks.”
The pro-Biafra group, in a statement by its spokesperson, EMMA Powerful said the “primitive approach to civil policing adopted by the Hausa/Fulani dominated Islamic army was a mockery to Nigeria.”
Wondering why such action could be meted out on women, the group called on Queen Elizabeth II of England, Theresa May the British Prime Minister, Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, and other human right organisation to condemn such.
It was also gathered from an eye witness account present at the conference venue that some of the women who were arrested by the Nigerian Army were totally naked without anything on their body.
“This is the highest form of criminal brutality against Biafrans by Hausa Fulani dominated Nigeria security apparatus. When will this crime against humanity and unprofessional conduct of the Nigerian Army stop.
