Obinwannem News Emene Killings: Detained IPOB Members Regain Freedom

A Magistrate Court has on Monday granted bail to four (4) family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that were arrested and detained during the Emene killings, in Enugu State.

A combined team of the Nigerian armed forces had invaded the Emene Community School on August 22, killing more than 22 persons.

Members of IPOB were said to be having prayer sessions before the attack.

Some who were arrested were charged with treasonable Felony, Murder and Belonging to an unlawful/ proscribed society.

Despite these stringent charges, the defendants were granted bail under the condition to present a family member respectively, for surety on their behalf.

Obinwannem gathered that the plaintiff being the police, refused to appear in court following series of petitions against them.

According to reports, the IPOB Legal Department, headed by Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, and was represented by Ogeh Chijioke Oscar Esq, fought relentlessly for the release of the defendants.
