Group calls for re­lease of IPOB co­or­di­na­tor

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Emma Elekwa, Awka

The Cam­paign for Democ­racy (CD), a hu­man rights group in Anam­bra State, yes­ter­day staged a peace­ful protest over the al­leged killings of Igbo youths by se­cu­rity agen­cies across the coun­try, just as it called for an un­con­di­tional re­lease of the na­tional co­or­di­na­tor of Indigenous Peo­ple of Bi­afra (IPOB) leader, Mr. Chi­diebere On­wudiwe by the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment.

Ad­dress­ing news­men dur­ing the protest, the Na­tional Pub­lic­ity Sec­re­tary of the group, Dede Uzor Dede, said the protest was in re­spect of the re­cent killings of un­harmed Igbo youths and the non-con­duct of elec­tion in Anam­bra Cen­tral Se­na­to­rial zone of the state and other parts of the coun­try.

“This or­ga­ni­za­tion is not happy with the devel­op­ment and so, we de­cided to em­bark on protest to show the world that we want the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment to look into the is­sues,” Uzor Said.
