Police Apprehend 51 Suspected IPOB Members In Umuahia

The Abia State Police Command on Wednesday arrested 51 persons suspected to be members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) but functioning as members of “Judaism’’, in Umuahia.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Geoffrey Ogbonna, confirmed the arrest in an interview with correspondents in Umuahia.

The Police Spokesman, said that the suspects were apprehended for allegedly being in possession of different insignias of the outlawed IPOB.

He said that the suspects included 41 men and 10 women, adding that they would be charged to court at the end of the investigation.

The suspects held a parade on major streets around Umuahia, carrying placards with different writings, written in Jewish Language.

They were interrupted by a team of anti-riot policemen, who shot several teargas canisters in their attempt to scatter the procession.

The development caused pandemonium at Isigate Market as traders, shop owners, passers-by and motorists were seen scampering for safety.

The suspects, who were robed in religious white attires with small caps, similar to the Jewish clothings, began the march from Afaraukwu community, where the Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB leader, hails from but were dispersed at Isigate.

One of the suspects, who identified himself as Israel el-Ibe, told journalists that the procession was arranged to “publicly demonstrate our desire to be allowed to have a Jewish state of our own in Biafra land because we are Jews in Biafra land”.
