107 IPOB members arrested in GHANA, 82 missing, official denies
The Ghanaian government has arrested no fewer than 107 members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra IPOB Members in the country.
Sources told 774ngr correspondent that they were arrested for various offences and 25 of those arrested have been deported and over the whereabouts of 82 persons are largely unknown.
The IPOB spokesperson released a press statement claiming that her members living in Ghana were unduly arrested, intimidated, harassed, tortured and humiliated by the Govt of Ghana and its security agencies.
The statement reads; ” We still remember the role by Ghana during the genocidal war unleashed to the good people of Biafra between 1967 and 1970. IPOB has not forgotten how Ghana refused to help the children of Biafra during that war of annihilation by the Nigeria Government supported by British authorities in their botched bid to annihilate Biafra from the surface of the earth.
“It is shameful and unfortunate that Ghana government and her security operatives could arrest Biafrans living in their country about 107 people in their monthly meeting, detained and deported 25 people of them to Nigeria and others were nowhere to found. Our family in Ghana were still looking for whereabouts of them, we are telling good people of Ghana to look for our people living in Ghana and produce them to Biafrans government or they ready for the consequences,”
“We are looking for 82 citizens of Biafra in Ghana. Ghana arrested 2-year old citizens of Biafra and detained her incommunicado for two weeks in Ghana prison yards without taking them to court.”
“Recently Ghana government led by Nana Dankwa Akufua Ado and his security agencies renewed their hatred on the people of Biafra. From 2019 till date, the Ghana government and its partners in crime have been clamping down on Biafra businesses in Ghana. This is sheer wickedness.”
“We are calling on Ghanaians and friends of Ghana President to inform him that he should stop collaborating with the Fulani-controlled Federal Government of Nigeria to oppress Biafra. We are keeping records. Nana Ado should not be allowed to make Ghana perpetual enemies of Biafra because of his selfish interest.”
A Government source in Ghana, who pleaded anonymity, denied the allegations stating that if it was true “the Nigerian High Commission in Ghana would have spoken about it.”
