The Ghana police have arrested some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

IPOB Directorate Of State (DOS) disclosed this in a retweet on its Twitter handle, asking the President of the Republic of Ghana, Mr. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to release the detainees.

It is not yet clear the reason behind their arrests on Saturday as at the time of this publication but report has it they were arrested while hosting their general peaceful meeting.

The DOS, however, reminded President Akufo-Addo that the people the country arrested are peace loving people who participated in humanitarian work in Ghana including charity work and keeping Accra, the capital of Ghana, clean.

“Hello Mr. President @NAkufoAddo sir, the IPOB family members Ghana police arrested are peace loving people that have participated in so many humanitarian work in Ghana including charity work & keeping Accra clean. We urge you to free our people they committed no crime @RAkufoAddo.”

Meanwhile, DOS has assured Biafrans and friends of Biafra that every effort are being put in place the secure the release of IPOB family members arrested in Ghana.

Mazi Chukwuemeka Nzurumike the Deputy head of the Directorate of State (DHOD) accused Nigeria government of connivance and masterminding the arrest of innocent Biafrans who are exercising their universal right to self-determination which Ghana is signatory to.

“Their freedom was arbitrarily violated recently in what appeared to be in connivance with the oppressive and crumbling regime in Abuja,” he said.

He called on Ghanaian government not to allow government of Nigeria to drag the good reputation “friendly nation” Ghana to the mud.

“We call on our friendly nation, Ghana to countermand this unsusceptible approach that reduces the Ghanaian graceful creed that sums up in defense of freedom, rights, and a crave for true humility,” he stated

The statement read in full:

The directorate of state of the indigenous people of Biafra wishes to familiarize all and sundry that relentless efforts are being deployed in ensuring the total release of the innocent Biafran citizens with legal domiciliation in Ghana. Their freedom was arbitrarily violated recently in what appeared to be in connivance with the oppressive and crumbling regime in Abuja.

Biafrans in Ghana have always cherished their host country known for its remarkable avowed qualities of civility amongs countries of sub-sahara Africa.

However, the DOS condemns in strong terms this cruel treatment recently meted out with insularity and parochialism disregarding the rule of law. As a matter of urgency, we call on our friendly nation, Ghana to countermand this unsusceptible approach that reduces the Ghanaian graceful creed that sums up in defense of freedom, rights, and a crave for true humility.

Biafrans will continue to remain democratically oriented, be law abiding and promote peace in all host countries around the globe!”

Recall that the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was arrested in May in Kenya for unknown offense and extradited to Nigeria.

He is currently in detention while facing charges of treason, treasonable felony, killing of security operatives, sponsoring a banned organisation, amongst others.

He is expected to appear in court in October for continuation of his trial.
