The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused the Department of State Services (DSS) of harassing its members.

IPOB also revealed that the DSS has been arresting innocent citizens under the guise of searching for Biafra agitators.

IPOB said “Since the May 29 and 30, 2016 cold blooded massacre of our members and non-members inside the church at Nkpor in Anambra State, the DSS  and other security agents have been going around and arresting anybody they suspect to be our members and dumping them in their detention cells without trial.

“The security agents are causing much harm and injuries on our people by going round the cities of Biafra land and arresting innocent people they believe to be members of IPOB.”

The group’s Media and Publicity Officer, Emma Powerful, also alleged that most of its members are missing.

Powerful also said “We are still looking for so many of our members, who have been missing since the attack during the Biafra remembrance. We are appealing to the international community to do something about this.

“Most IPOB members and their families are now living in fear following harassment from security agents. We cannot continue living in such condition just because we are demanding for the independent state of Biafra.”

Some IPOB members were recently arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) for allegedly planning to carry out attacks on the Computer Village in Ikeja, Lagos State.
