Frontline rights group, the International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law (Intersociety) on Tuesday alleged the butchering of innocent pro-Biafra activists belonging to the Independent Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) by security agents in a brutal crackdown on unarmed separatists across the River Niger.

Intersociety announced that it has in its possession “irrefutable, un-concocted and shocking evidence of how jubilant and unarmed IPOB/pro Biafra activists, in their dozens, were shot at close range, maimed, abducted, murdered and dumped at the Anambra State Government owned Onitsha General Hospital by soldiers of the Onitsha Military Cantonment, headed by Col Issah Abdullahi.”

Giving a state-by-state breakdown of the alleged extra-judicial killings, Intersociety said in a statement signed by Board Chairman Emeka Umeagbalasi and Head, Civil Liberties & Rule of Law Programme, Obianuju Joy Igboeli, Esq. that “in the entire shooting, maiming and killing, five locations are associated with those shot and maimed. They are (1) Onitsha, (2) Asaba, (3) Enugu, (4) Aba and (5) Igweocha (in Rivers State). Three locations, on the other hand, are associated with shooting and killing. They are (1) Onitsha (1 &2), (2) Aba (1, 2 & 3) and (3) Igweocha (Rivers State).”

The group promised to, in the next few days, “furnish all Nigerians and members of the international community including all the international rights and media groups the detailed statistics concerning the Butchery Across the Niger perpetrated by soldiers of the Onitsha Military Cantonment, commanded by Col Issah Abdullahi, under the chief security watch of the Government of Anambra State led by Mr. Willie Obiano.”

The statement condemned the “intensification of falsehood, propaganda and evidence destruction by leaderships of the Nigerian Army and the Nigeria Police Force under statutorily retired but cabalistically retained Lt General Turkur Buratai and retiring IGP Solomon Arase respectively; over mass shooting, maiming and killing of dozens of unarmed, non-violent and innocent IPOB/pro Biafra activists and their supporters across the Southeast of Nigeria as ordered by the duo recently.”
