IPOB, the Indigenous People of Biafra, charged Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma on Friday of facilitating the repatriation of 500 youths who were purportedly detained in the state and transferred to Abuja.
Uzodinma, according to IPOB, should expedite the repatriation of these kids before losing patience.
IPOB spokesperson Emma Powerful bemoaned the fact that approximately a year ago, Uzodinma urged security forces to arrest over 500 Biafra youths, and their locations remained unknown.
Powerful stated in a statement that the Governor would be held accountable if anything happened to them.
The statement reads partly: “This is also one year that Hope Uzodinma and his APC party invited military to kill innocent citizens in Imo State and they arrested and abducted many people who they ferried to Abuja. We are also yet to see them.
“They abducted over 500 Biafra youths in Imo State since last year, and we want those youths back for prosecution if they think they committed any crime.
“We gathered through intelligence that those youths were actually being brought back from Abuja to Imo State but unfortunately Nigeria security agents who were escorting them executed them along the way of Abaji and Lokoja in Kogi State.
“We are about to exhaust our patience. Hope Uzodinma should please return those youths before we lose our patience.
“Hope Uzodinma should be held responsible if anything untoward happens to our comrades. He should not expect to conduct his daughter’s traditional wedding in Abuja while the Igbo youths he aided their abduction were executed by security agents. The spirit of those youths won’t allow him go on cerebration spree after making many innocent families childless.”
