At least thirty members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra who returned from the United Kingdom to Nigeria are alleged to be missing and there where about is yet unknown.
Disclosing this to reporters, a Human Rights Lawyer, Bar John Bosco Udeaja said that the British authorities do not appreciate the situation in Nigeria adding that should the other three be deported they cannot guarantee their safety.
“We have been following the process of repatriating these members of IPOB, three of them include, Mr. Nduka Jonadad Iwunze , Benjamin Okafor and Emmanuel Chikelue .
“They have had their Appeals against the administrative removal dismissed for the reason that they have not been able to know the fate of IPOB Members that have returned from the U.K .
” Obviously, the British authorities do not seem to know that about thirty members of IPOB that returned to Nigeria we’re reported to be missing and their family members do not know where they are and the security system in this country have not been helping matters in assisting their relatives to find them.
“The arrest of IPOB members is like a cash cow for security operatives because family members and friends pay lump sums to find them we do not know if they are under the custody of the operatives.
“Against the this backdrop, we urge the U.K government not to deport the three young men due to the fact that we cannot guarantee their safety at the moment and it would not speak well of the government over there to send these young men only for them to be abducted or killed.” he said.
