Operatives of the Nigerian army and police have stormed a church in Enugu state on Sunday morning, May 30, and arrested over 50 members over claims they belong to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Eye witnesses said the members were worshipping in the church on Owerri Road, Enugu, when the operatives interrupted the service.
A video went viral showing the police and soldiers giving orders while male members of the church marched out of the church with their hands in the air.
According one of the eyewitnesses, “The Nigeria police and military have just stormed a church in Owerri Road, Enugu State, molesting over 50 men, both old and young while marching them to an unknown destination.
“We are bringing this to the attention of the world. The lives of these men should not be wasted for no crime committed. They were only at a place of worship today being Sunday the 30th of May 2021 and no arms were found with them.”
