Enugu State police command,
have declared the leader of the Biafra Zionist Federation, Barrister
Benjamin Igwe Onwuka wanted , Onwuka led the pro-Biafra
group that invaded the Enugu Government House in the early hours
of March 8, 2014 to hoist the Biafra flag.
The police said Onwuka, 52, a native of Item in Bende local
government area of Abia State, is wanted for alleged treasonable
felony.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr. Ebere
Amaraizu, who made this known in a statement, yesterday, said that
“investigations into the alleged attack on Government House on
March 8, 2014 by 4.30 a.m. have been intensified as some arrests have
been made to that effect and suspects already helping the police in their
investigations to unravel all those behind the dastardly act and bring
them to book while manhunt on the fleeing persons are in top gear.”
He said: “The state police command has declared one Onwuka
Benjamin Igwe wanted for treasonable felony. Onwuka Bejamin
Igwe is one of the suspected actors in the unlawful act of 8/3/14 at
Government House and since then has not been seen. He is 5ft 2
inches tall and not too dark in complexion and about 52 years and
speaks English and Ibo languages fluently.
“He is also a native of Item in Bende local Government Area of
Abia state and is resident around Abakpa Nike axis of Enugu state.
The command requests any one with useful information about
Onwuka Benjamin Igwe to contact any nearest police Division or
formation or the State Criminal and Investigations Department
Enugu state for appropriate action as the informant will be
adequately rewarded.”
Onwuka had shortly after leading his group for the night operation at
the Government House claimed responsibility for invasion of Enugu
State seat of power, saying members of his group took control of the
Enugu State seat of power for about four hours after they
successfully hoisted the flag of the Republic of Biafra and some
banners at the main gate.
He told newsmen that their mission was primarily to reclaim the old
headquarters of the former Biafra Republic, dismissing speculations
that the group was sponsored by some politicians in Enugu State.
He explained that the major target of the BZF members was to hoist
the Biafran flag as a symbol of rebirth of the defunct Biafra
Republic, adding that member of his group who were not armed and
who had no charms whatsoever, were in the Government House from
3 am to 7am before soldiers dislodged them, insisting that they
accomplished their mission.
He, however, warned that Nigeria should vacate the Biafra
territory before March 31, 2014 or risk a bloodbath, disclosing that his
group had concluded plans to take over total control of Biafra land
from April 1.
But Onwuka had gone into hiding since the incident even as the police
said that four members of his the group had been arrested and were
helping them in their investigations into the incident.
Meanwhile, security has been beefed up around the Government
House, Enugu as Armoured Personnel Careers had been stationed at
the two entries to the Government House while dozens of armed
security operatives including soldiers, have been deployed to the area.
Meanwhile the MASSOB has threaten to sue the police over the human right abuse,it could be recalled that the police said that MASSOB where responsible for the attack just hours after the attack .
Let watch as the story unfold……
Do you think that Onwuka should be arrested or not ?
