The family of Mrs Ifeoma Anita Ojukwu, who was arrested by the Police on account of her involvement in Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has appealed to the Police authorities to release his wife.
Briefing newsmen in Enugu, the husband, Mr Obiora Ojukwu, pointed out that his wife had never hidden her desire for the actualisation of the Biafra Republic, noting that her absence had cause a lot of hardship and sleepless nights to him and the entire family members.
He said: “She was not only a member but was a financier of the movement. It was during the recent meeting of the movement at the presidential hotel Enugu, that the Police arrested Ifeoma and other notable members of the movement including Mrs Jane Okwuosa, Mr Johnson Igwe, Mrs Agnes Ihechukwu and Mrs. Edna Eze.”
Ojukwu said that on inquiries from the Police Command, the family was told that Ifeoma and other arrested MASSOB members escaped from custody.
