On early Monday morning, several members of the Biafra Zionists Federation, BZF, alongside their self-acclaimed leader, Barr. Benjamin Onwuka, have been arrested in Enugu.
A combined team of security operatives made up of the Department of State Services, DSS, and the Nigeria Police were said to have been involved in the operation.
DAILY POST learnt that they were arrested after another failed attempt to enter the Enugu Government House for the inauguration of Biafra.
Mazi Ambrose Ugwu, Deputy Leader of the group, has confirmed the arrest and told journalists “Our people were prevented from entering the Enugu Government House, after which they were arrested and taken away.
“I learnt they were arrested by men of the DSS and the police.
“Right now, I don’t know how many of them that were arrested; I also don’t know where they took them to.”
DAILY POST recalls that the Enugu State Police Command had on Sunday warned the Zionists not to get close the Enugu Government House as they would be made to face the law squarely.
