A call has gone to the Nigeria Security Forces by the family of one Mr. Ifeanyichukwu Collins Uwanna, their son who has been missing after leading a protest in Umuahia, Abia State on 8th of April 2022, demanding an unconditional release of their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Indigenous People of Biafra leader who has been facing a treason charges against Nigeria since his abduction from Kenya.
Mr. Ifeanyichukwu, a top member of the Eastern Security Network of the IPOB, held from Amuro in Ikwuano Local Government Area of Abia State, who among those has been fighting for the emancipation of Biafra land as an independent country.
Before the reported missing, Mr. Ifeanyichukwu, has had altercations with the Nigeria police and had been detained sometime ago in October 2021 and released over his activities with IPOB.
However, a spokesman of the family, Chief Augustine Uwanna, described Mr. Ifeanyichukwu, as a peaceful man with a wife and 3, children who hate marginalisation of all persons, reasons why he joined IPOB to agitate for the liberation of the South Eastern region from Nigeria.
He call on the Nigeria Police to release Mr. Ifeanyichukwu Uwanna, so that he could return to his family to care for his children.
Meanwhile, efforts to reach the police spokesperson in Abia State Central Police Station in Umuahia, Mr. Geoffrey Ogbonna, through phone calls proved abortive, his number fail to go through before filing this report.
Also recall that before now the IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful, has questioned the unlawful detention of IPOB members who are only protesting for freedom while the terrorists herdsmen are roaming freely on the streets of Nigeria causing mayhem.
