BREAKING: COPS arrests IPOB members in Abuja
Several members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have been taken to custody of Nigeria police on Monday.
Men of the police arrested them at the Abuja High Court. They were in court in solidarity and support of their leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who was believed to have been arrested in Kenya a month ago.
The IPOB leader, Kanu, according to court, jumped bail and relocated to another country, following bloody raids at his home by the soldiers in Abia state.
A number of them apprehended were singing and chanting in support of the embattled leader, requesting his freedom. Some of them were wearing Jewish apparel.
The total number of arrested members was not ascertained at the time of filing this report.
Legal counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had a day ago instructed supporters not to go near the court premises or put on Biafra branded clothes.
