LAGOS, (CAJ News) – A proponent of the independence of Biafra has urged fellow supporters to track the movements of retired Inspector General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, in the hope the latter would be declared wanted for alleged crimes against humanity.
Emeka Umeagbalasi, said Biafrans all over the world, including those residing in Nigeria, must keep a “24-hr searchlight” on Arase.
“Biafrans must ensure that his whereabouts are monitored and logged-in with the office of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) headquartered in Vitoria-Spain,” said Umeagbalasi, who is also the chairman of Intersociety, a civil society organisation.
He said it was important to keep a record of Arase’s movements so that when the International Criminal Court (ICC) finally issued the long-awaited international warrant order for his arrest, it would be easy to locate, apprehend, handcuff, and fly him to the Hague for prosecution.
“This man presided over the extra-judicial killing of over one thousand Biafrans between July 2015 and May 30th 2016.”
Ibrahim Idriss has succeeded Arase, who turned 60 on Tuesday.
