About 57 members of the Barr. Benjamin Onwuka-led Biafra Zionists Federation, BZF, have been arrested in Enugu State, IgbereTV has learned.

According to Daily Post, they were picked up on Sunday morning shortly before the commencement of their Biafra Day parade.

Leader of the group, Onwuka claimed that policemen from Ogui Division stormed their meeting venue and whisked his members away.

In a message he sent out on Sunday, the self-acclaimed BZF leader said “they arrested 57 of our members this morning. We were preparing to go for our Biafra parade.

“We are non-violent people, we are peaceful agitators. They should be released immediately, unconditionally, without charge, they committed no crime.

“We have informed the United States of this development,” he claimed.

Onwuka had a few days ago announced that they would storm the Michael Okpara Square, Enugu, today, for a Biafra parade.

When contacted, the PPRO of the Enugu State Police Command, Daniel Ndukwe, he said, “call me back please.”

Then, a text message was sent to him explaining the reason for the call. He is yet to respond as of the time of filing this report.

We'll keep an eye on the development and bring you updates as events unfold.
