Enugu Govt House Attack: Police Reveals Those Involved
The Enugu State command of the Nigerian Police Force has revealed that the Saturday attack carried out by by gunmen on the Enugu Government House involved members of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB).
Confirming the incident, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Abubakar Mohammed Adamu, said one of the alleged attackers, Ifeanyi Chukwuma, from Anambra State, shot during the attack, was still receiving treatment at a hospital.
Those arrested in connection with the crime are: Shedrack Onwuka, Francis Nwokocha and Sunday Okafor, all indigenes of Anambra State.
The detained men confessed that “they were invited by some people to go to Enugu and hoist Biafra flags”. However, the motive is still not clear.
It would be recalled that the attack, which was stopped by the military, claimed one life.
The items recovered from the suspects include MASSOB banners, Biafra flags, matchets and one bag containing charms. It was mentioned though, that MASSOB was not inscribed on the banners.
The banner read: “The Republic of Biafra, aka, The Tribe of God; Amalgamation Dissolved; Biafra an Ally and Supporter of Israel”.
