There was wild jubilation in the commercial town of Onitsha on Thursday after the federal government, through the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, released all members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, who have been in detention.
They were earlier arrested by various security agencies in Aba, Abia state, during their prayer rally in February.
A statement issued to newsmen Thursday in Onitsha, by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary,
Emma Powerful confirmed that their members had been released.
He said all IPOB members worldwide under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Director of Radio Biafra were commending the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF and all those who had common sense to understand that all those arrested in Aba must be released.
Powerful described the freedom of their members as a good omen for the birth of Biafra.
