The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has pleaded with the Imo State Commissioner of Police, Dazuki Galadanchi, to disclose the location of the bodies of its members said to have been killed in a recent clash with security forces in the state.
Speaking to newsmen yesterday, counsel to IPOB, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, claimed that the police had killed five of their members during the clash and arrested about 15 of them.
He accused the police of taking away the bodies of the said members to an unknown destination
Ejiofor said: “We have a confirmed report that some members of IPOB were killed by the police of the anti-robbery squad in Imo state.
“Also many were arrested on account we cannot explain. We saw it as a serious case of police brutality and violation of the fundamental rights of people who are merely working around.
“There is no reason why they should be arrested talk more of being killed. In the manner they are being killed. We learnt they also took away their corpse. What it means is that after killing them they made away with their corpses.
“The number of injured are many but we will take appropriate action to compel them for their production of the dead bodies. Also, the release of those arrested.”
