BBnaija Host, Ebuka, And Other Nigerians React To The Arrest Of 112 Women In Owerri Who Were Charged With Terrorism And Treason For Protesting Top less. Names Of Arrested Women Released!



On Monday, 112 women in Owerri were arrested and charged with Terrorism and Treason for protesting the “disappearance” of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) topless. 







Kanu has not been seen in public since IPOB had a clash with soldiers of the Nigerian army in Abia, last year.


The women were picked close to Warehouse junction in the state capital, after attempts by the policemen to disperse them with teargas were unsuccessful.





The women were remanded in jail till September 3 by Magistrate S.K Durumba for embarking on a peaceful protest.

It was also gathered that one of the women (a pregnant woman) who broke down in the court as a result of the alleged beaten earlier received from the police during the peaceful protest was said to have bled profusely before she was rushed to an undisclosed hospital.



When contacted on Thursday, Andrew Enwerem, spokesman of the Imo state police command, declined to state the offence of the protesters. 








When asked why the police picked them up, he replied : “Go to Owerri prison, you are a reporter. Go to the prison and find out.”


Big Brother Naija Host, Ebuka Obi Uchendu, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, including many Nigerians have demanded the unconditional release of the 112 pro-Biafra Imo women.
