The recent survey conducted by the Igbo National Council (INC) reveals that over thirty thousand (30,000) pro-Biafran activists are languishing in different solitary conferment and prisons across Nigeria without trials.
The saddest of it is that these Prisoners of Conscience (POC) did not commit any tangible offence that would warrant them go through the torture they are arbitrary subjected to by the sadistic Nigeria Government.
We wish to inform the Nigerian people and the world at large that many of the women among these pro-Biafran Prisoners of Conscience (POC) illegally held in different detention centers and prisons by the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration has given birth to children while in detention and their children taken away from them to unknown destination without their consent.
Many of these illegally detained pro-Biafran activists are daily subjected to Mental, Psychological, Emotional and Spiritual torture by the Nigeria security agents on the order of the Federal Government. We strongly suspect that the female among these detained pro-Biafran activists are regularly subjected to sexual harassments and rapes by their captors, while many of the men folks can no longer be accounted for as a result of dead while in detention.
We note with anger that many Boko Haram terrorists and Fulani Herdsmen arrested with arms for terrorist attacks on Nigerian people has long been released or swap. The above is a clear sign of injustice and unholy conspiracy orchestrated against the Igbo Race in Nigeria by the sadistic President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.
Consequent upon the above, the Igbo National Council (INC) therefore calls on the Federal Government of Nigeria and State Governments where these pro-Biafran Prisoners of Conscience (POC) are being held to grant them Judicial Pardon before the end of October 2019.
