Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lead counsel for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has said that legal action will be taken against the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Federal government of Nigeria headed by Muhammadu Buhari for allegedly arresting a young woman, named Idara Gold in Enugu for wearing Biafran outfit.
Idara Gold, a young self-proclaimed Biafra activist from Mbiafun Nkwono in Akwa Ibom State, dressed in red, green and black attire inspired by the Biafran flag to celebrate her birthday. She was later taken away alongside four other persons by a joint task force of the Nigerian security agents and troops.
When Journalists contacted Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, he said the secret police denied arresting her, but he and his team were making efforts to get justice for the young girl.
According to his words; “We are on the matter, we have called the DSS in charge of the case. They denied having her in their custody. We are currently on it, we have made contact with some of the family members of the persons arrested. We are on it and preparing to take legal action against it,” Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor stated.
All attempts to reach the Public Relations Officer of the Enugu State Police Command, ASP Daniel Ndukwe were futile as his mobile line could not be reached.
Similarly, last month, the Nigerian Army personnel had arrested a veteran Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu in Onitsha, Anambra State for wearing Biafra attire. After he was released by the army, the DSS re-arrested him and flew him to its headquarters in Abuja. He later regained his freedom when they had no evidence to prosecute him.
