Court frees 60 IPOB members in Owerri

About sixty members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have been freed by the Imo State Police Command after their bail application was granted by the chief judge of the state.

Ifeanyi Ejiofor, a lawyer to the group disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday.

He said the IPOB members were arrested on their way to a burial ceremony in August 2020 and were held for six months before their bail application was accepted.

The police had alleged that they were arrested following an intelligence report that the accused were planning an attack on law enforcement agents in the state.
