The leadership of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Thursday, disclosed that it has directed all its members worldwide to closely monitor the movements and whereabouts of the retired Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Solomon Arase, to facilitate his arrest and arraignment in the International Criminal Court, ICC, as soon as an international bench warrant is issued for his arrest.
IPOB said that the essence of keeping such a 24-hour surveillance on Arase’s movements was because he (Arase) allegedly presided over the extra-judicial killings of over 1,000 Biafrans between July, 2015 and May 30, 2016.
In a press statement signed by its spokesman, Dr. Clifford Iroegbu, IPOB directed that Arase’s whereabouts must also be monitored and logged-in with the office of IPOB headquarters, Victoria, Spain.
The statement added: “it is very important to keep a record of his movements so that when the ICC finally issues the long-awaited international warrant order for his arrest, it will be easy to locate, apprehend, handcuff and fly him to the Hague for prosecution at the ICC”.
The statement further added: “if anyone happens to see him fleeing the country, please make calls to alert IPOB officials. For those who do not know the atrocious crimes committed by him (Arase), we have posted two of his pictures and the pictures of some of the victims he shot dead because we believe that pictures speak more than a thousand words”.
