The report reads; “The findings from comprehensive review of our Special Research and Investigative Report on Imo Mass Atrocities unveiled on 21st May 2023 have shown that not less than 100 unarmed civilians have been killed by military personnel and other law enforcement agents between 7th June and 30th June 2023, a period of 24 days and an additional 230 civilian homes were burnt down with thousands rendered homeless and forced to flee.

“The two worst hit areas are communities in Izombe and neighboring others including Agwa Autonomous Community; all in Oguta Local Government Area as well as Amucha, Orlu, Njaba, Orsu and others under Orlu Zone of the State. While 80 of the slain 100 unarmed citizens were openly killed, 20 were killed in custody after having been abducted and disappeared.

“Not less than 200 unarmed citizens were arrested under false labeling and taken into custody where they are most likely being tortured or threatened with custodial death. The Nigerian Military and Police authorities have also been detected trying to influence media reports by compromising a section of the media to change their atrocious conducts to attacks carried out by Unknown Gunmen or Members of the IPOB and it armed wing the ESN.

“For instance, attempts have been made by the authorities of the deployed security forces to change the original media reports accusing the security forces of killing ‘at least 50 civilians and burning down of 170 civilian houses in Izombe and environs between 7th June and 19th June 2023.’”

“Therefore, in the past 30 months from January 2021 to 30th June 2023 under Hope Uzodinma as Imo state Governor, a total of 1000 civilians have been killed, 3,700 arrested and 320 disappeared without traces. Not less than 1,400 civilian houses have also been burnt down and more than 72,000 occupants forced into homelessness and displacement during which at least 600,000 members of the defenseless general population were forced to flee to avoid being class-criminalized, falsely profiled, abducted or arbitrarily arrested and detained without trial or killed and false-labeled.”
