Reports reaching Newsdotafrica has it that officers of the Nigeria Police Force in Cross River State have arrested twenty three (23) people suspected to be members of Mass Movement for the Actualisation for Biafra, MASSOB.
The arrest took place on Thursday, April 28, 2022, in Ikom Local Government Area of the State when the police nabbed some of them at a watch repairer’s workshop while others were picked from their homes located within and around the town.
Wives of six of the arrested persons complained they have not been allowed access to their husbands since last week when the arrest took place.
Mrs Beatrice Ikechukwu Ani, wife of Ikechukwu Ani who led five other women told our reporter that their husbands have been without food since their arrest.
She said their husbands were at a watch repairing workshop when the police came and took them to Ikom Police Station and from there to Calabar, the Capital of the State.
When they were at Ikom they did not allow us to see or take food to them and from there they brought them to anti cultism unit not even State CID for detention”.
Mrs Beatrice said their husbands are not cultists or criminals so detaining them among cultists and criminals without food was unjust.
