Jailbreak in Owerri: Tension over arrests in Imo communities


Fear is palpable in some communities in Imo state, over the alleged arrest of persons suspected to be members of Pro -Biafra groups.

It was gathered that the arrest is said to be in connection with the various attacks on police stations and Owerri correctional centre in Imo.

A source who is a member of a pro-Biafra group disclosed to reporters that such arrest also happened in some local government areas in the state, places as Ohaji/Egbema and Orsu local government areas. Also in Izombe and Agwa both in the Oguta local government area of the state.

A source from Ugbele in Izombe, Oguta local government area of Imo state, said that, one Charles Nwuzi and wife was taken away by security operatives.

He said: “Since last week, this thing started, as I am talking to you, Mr Charles Nwuzi and his wife was taken away by some people with a gun. I don’t know if they are police or Army Officers. They were taken away around 3 o’clock in the night five days ago.

“I suspect it is because of these attacks happening in Imo, the attack on the police stations and the prison. I know Nwuzi is a member of one of the Biafra groups. As I am talking to you everybody is running away because of fear.”
