KanyiDaily recalled on August 9, 2020, 67 IPOB members were arrested while on their way to meet a native doctor to fortify them against bullet penetration in Imo State.

In a statement issued by Emma Powerful, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Kanu said he has written to UK and US respectively, warning that a peaceful agitation should not be construed as weakness.

The IPOB leader also called on Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, and the state’s commissioner for police, Isaac Olutayo Akinmode, to immediately released the arrested persons. He wrote:

“We wish to draw the attention of the creator of Nigeria, the Almighty Great Britain through the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, UK in Nigeria, the US State Department through U.S. Mission Nigeria, to the deliberate and orchestrated provocations/actions of the government against peaceful Biafrans.

“Without provocation and having not committed any crime known to law, a group of Biafrans numbering over 70 were arrested, humiliated and detained by Isaac Olutayo Akinmoyede, Police Commissioner in Imo State.

“Despite the daily carnage and mayhem in Imo State by herdsmen, no one has been arrested and detained in the police custody.

“Police are yet to arrest or parade suspects involved in the killings and destruction of farmlands in the State.

“This same police had the temerity to detain innocent people going about their business because they are Biafrans.

“Is the state governor and commissioner for police saying that Biafrans can be arrested at will even when no crime has been committed but herdsmen are free to roam and kill at will.

“This level of provocation is unacceptable. If and when Biafran people decide to take matters into their own hands, let it be on record that the duo caused it. Peaceful agitation should not be construed as weakness.”

KanyiDaily had also reported how the police arrested 51 persons suspected members of IPOB operating as members of “Judaism” in Umuahia, Abia State.
