The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has alleged that the Nigerian security operatives are intensifying the ongoing arrests of its members and killing them secretly, while a syndicate is selling their body parts in oversea countries.
The Nnamdi Kanu-led group revealed this in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, obtained by SaharaReporters on Wednesday.
It titled the statement, “Nigerian security agents killing and selling human organs Of Biafra youths – IPOB.”
The statement reads, “The attention of global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been drawn to the incessant abductions of innocent Biafran youths by the Nigerian security agencies. These innocent Biafran youths are taken to the Department of State Services (DSS) dungeons and Nigerian Army barracks particularly the dreaded Abattoir Barracks in Abuja where they are dehumanised and tortured in these secret cells.
“Currently, over 100 innocent Biafran youths are being detained incommunicado at the DSS Headquarters in Abuja. Over 400 others have been detained at the Abattoir cell since this year.
“Intelligence report gathered by IPOB intelligence unit and reliable source indicates that some wicked DSS agents and army personnel are killing some of our people and selling their kidneys and other vital human organs to human organ traffickers abroad.
“These people are currently detained since February this year, arrested in Imo State and moved to (Abattoir) IRT unit in Abuja under the command of Abba Kyari; Maria Ezediaro, Ngozi Umeadi, Ifeyinwa Egole, Pastor Ebere, Mazi Okwuosha, Nnabuike Nwankwo, Gabriel Onyedikachi, Ogochukwu Unamba and Lambert. These people are in Abattoir with many others in detention.
“IPOB is, therefore, calling on all Biafrans who are looking for their brothers and sisters to go to DSS Headquarters Abuja and the notorious Abattoir army barracks Abuja, to check if they are still alive or dead. Seven persons have been slaughtered in the past two weeks according to an intelligence report available to us.
“We are also alerting the world about the atrocities going on in Nigeria against the people of Biafra. We call on the United Nations, Amnesty International, and the global community to prevail on Nigeria to send all these innocent Biafran youths languishing in various secret cells to court for trial instead of subjecting them to extra-judicial killings.”
