IPOB in Bayelsa calls for release of Nnamdi Kanu

Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOD) in Bayelsa State numbering over 40 who were arrested by the Operation Delta Safe have called on the federal government to release their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, without further delay.
The members, who are currently facing three count charges of conspiracy, breach of public peace and unlawful gathering filed against them by the police say, despite the persecution and oppression meted to them by the Nigerian Army, they will never cease to agitate for the independence of Biafra.
Speaking to newsmen shortly after the court session, the Bayelsa State Coordinator of IPOB, Igrubia Lucky, who is also a Bayelsan, stated that they were having their monthly prayer meeting in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, when troops of the Operation Delta Safe invaded and arrested them.
Igrubia noted that about 45 of them (men only) were given the beating of a life-time after the army separated the women and children from them, adding that they did not eat, nor drink any water for three complete days even though nothing was found in their possession except their phones and Bibles which they took along for the prayer meeting which he said was about to commence when they were raided.-The Authority
