Not less than 100 Biafran activists have been declared missing in Biafra land and beyond as Nigerian Army and Police goes on rampage in a renewed clamp down on Indigenous People of Biafra across the country.

For the past 24 hours, Family Writers has received a wide range of calls from notable IPOB Intelligence Officers in Biafra land, narrating the siege laid by the Nigerian security agencies at their various meeting venues, even as scores have been whisked away to unknown destinations.

An IPOB Principle Officer from Bayelsa state of Biafra land, while speaking with Family Writers, disclosed that the Nigerian Army and Police are "massively arresting our members at Okahka area of Yenegoa in Bayelsa."

 According to the Principal Officer, "people arrested were up to two fully loaded military trucks."

In Anambra, the abduction of IPOB members at the slightest opportunity by the security agencies has become the order of the day. For the past two weeks, not less than 10 IPOB members who usually embarks on evangelism and sensitisation programmes across the state have been arrested by either the police, DSS or military personnels.

 Another pathetic reports of the clamp down has been received from Enugu and Rivers states respectively.

 In Enugu, a recent confirmed report says that top saboteur politicians in the state are collaborating with security agencies, by providing them with informations on the regular meeting venues of IPOB members in the state. Some of the political puppets of the Nigerian government whose names have been gathered by Family Writers includes: Senator Gilbert Emeka Nnaji- representing Enugu East constituency, and his henchmen- Francis Anike and Akaekpuchi Onwa. A report have accused the politicians of receiving huge sums of money from the federal government, in order to destabilise the activities of IPOB.

 Also a report from a Family Writers journalist from the state, Mr. Egwuatu Chukz, has also revealed that the Ogbete market chairman, Mr. Temple Ude, is hell bent on accomplishing his earlier threats to ensure the arrest of all Biafran activists in the state.

   Similar incidents have occurred in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state, where Biafra activists are continually hounded, abducted and incarcerated for many months, while their relatives are kept in the dark over their whereabouts.

Meanwhile statistics have shown that 40% of those abducted by the security agencies are usually executed extra judicially and buried in mass graves.

 Series of complaints have been forwarded to Family Writers by Families and relatives of the abducted activists, who expressed their worries and anxieties over the whereabouts and predicament of their sons and daughters.

Biafrans have complained that being continuously pushed to wall by the Nigerian government.

The international community has been called upon to intervene in the gross abuse of the human rights of Biafrans in Nigeria, which are in violation of international treaties signed by the country based on the protection of human rights and the right to self determination.
