The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has alleged that hundreds of its members are either missing or dead in Rivers State, Abia.
In a statement made by the Spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful, he noted that those missing have been presumed dead.
Since the inception of the clash between its members and the Nigerian Army, hundreds of IPOB members have been unaccounted for.
“Hundreds of Biafran youths are still missing and presumed dead at the time of this statement. The few survivors of the Isiala Ngwa massacre, taken to secret detention centers in army barracks in and around Abia and Rivers states, are still unaccounted for,” Emma Powerful said.
He said they have a “video footage” of men of the Nigerian Army stationed at the Isiala Ngwa junction dragging people out of their cars and executing them in broad daylight.
In addition, the group accused the Nigerian Army of Genocide and mass killings of Biafrans and Christian communities, especially in northern Nigeria.
“The more troubling issue is that certain political office holders in the south east are comfortable with the idea of inviting Hausa-Fulani Islamic army to come into Abia State to execute hundreds of young men and women in cold blood” he said.
“They have been subject to all these simply because they demanded for their right to self-determination”.
“We hold Major Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai and Governor Okezie Ikpeazu majorly responsible for the cold blooded execution going on now in and around Abia State at such a time as this”.
“Gov. Okezize Ikpeazu saw it fit to invite the Nigerian military with their deplorable human rights records, to his state to kill innocent civilians”
