The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has called on the Imo State Commissioner of Police, Dazuki Galadanchi, to disclose where bodies of its members allegedly killed in recent clash with security forces in the state are kept.
Speaking to newsmen on Tuesday, counsel to the group, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, claimed that the police had killed five members during the clash and arrested about 15 of them.
He accused the police of taking away the bodies of the said members to an unknown destination.
Ejiofor said: “We have a confirmed report that some members of IPOB were killed by the police of the anti-robbery squad in Imo state.
“Also many were arrested on account we cannot explain. We saw it as a serious case of police brutality and violation of the fundamental rights of people who are merely working around.
“There is no reason why they should be arrested talk more of being killed. In the manner they are being killed. We learnt they also took away their corpse. What it means is that after killing them they made away with their corpses.
“The number of injured are many but we will take appropriate action to compel them for their production of the dead bodies. Also, the release of those arrested.”
