Description


According to Amnesty International: "On 22 June 2016, at around 2am, DSS officers arrested Chidiebere Onwudiwe, a mechanical engineer and Nigeria’s National Coordinator of IPOB, at his house in Port Harcourt. He was suspected of “planning to carry out coordinated attacks against religious bodies/edifices, Police-Check Points and the computer village in Ikeja, Lagos State, with Improvised Explosive devices”. He was first brought to court on 7 November and charged along with Nnamdi Kanu with several offences including terrorism. On 14 July, a lawyer filed an application for an order enforcing his fundamental rights. This case is ongoing." [+]
