The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Thursday, disclosed that all its members across the world have been instructed to closely follow the movements and whereabouts of the newly retired Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase.
Arase handed over the reins of the administration of the police force to Ibrahim Idris on Tuesday following the commencement of his retirement after years of service.
IPOB said it had instructed its members to track the former IG to facilitate his arrest and arraignment in the International Criminal Court (ICC) as soon as an international bench warrant was issued for his arrest.
In a press statement signed by its spokesman, Clifford Iroegbu, IPOB said it was keeping a 24-hour surveillance on Arase’s movements because he allegedly presided over the extra-judicial killing of 1,000 Biafran agitators between July, 2015 and May 30, 2016.
The group further said that Arase’s movement would be monitored and logged-in with the office of IPOB headquarters, Victoria, Spain.
“It is very important to keep a record of his movements so that when the ICC finally issues the long-awaited international warrant order for his arrest, it will be easy to locate, apprehend, handcuff and fly him to the Hague for prosecution at the ICC.”
“If anyone happens to see him fleeing the country, please make calls to alert IPOB officials. For those who do not know the atrocious crimes committed by him (Arase), we have posted two of his pictures and the pictures of some of the victims he shot dead because we believe that pictures speak more than a thousand words.”
