Awurum Eze, the second-in-command to the late leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Commander Ikonso, has been arrested by security operatives.

This was confirmed by the Nigerian Army in a statement on Wednesday night.

The statement said Eze was arrested in Aba, Abia State, where he was hiding.

The statement, which was signed by Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Mohammed Yerima, was titled, ‘Security Forces Arrest Another IPOB/ESN Terrorists’ Henchman’.

Yerima said 48-year-old Eze, a native of Umoneke Nta, Isiala-Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State, was also a member of IPOB’s security outfit, Eastern Security Network.

The Army said Eze had on May 4, 2021 escaped when operatives of Intelligence Response Team stormed his village house in Isiala Mbano where he was hiding.

Intensive manhunt was thereafter launched towards tracing and arresting him. He was eventually apprehended on Wednesday, 12 May 2022, in Aba after weeks of unrelenting follow-ups by operatives.

“Awurum Eze is one of the main sponsors of the numerous killings in Imo State and has been on the wanted list of security agents for more than 3 months. Many of the arrested IPOB/ESN terrorists had earlier mentioned him as their key sponsor, mastermind and Second in Command to late Ikonso.

“According to them, amongst all their leaders in Imo State, only Ikonso and Awurum have direct communication link with Nnamdi Kanu. He can be seen in several photographs posing with the fugitive terrorist leader, Nnamdi Kanu,” the statement partly read. The statement also added that investigation by the combined team of security operatives would continue.

Pardon me for my choice of words; but, you arrested a person who says he wants to be out of Naoija! Meanwhile Shekau who is a bonafide terrorist is left to roam the streets free terrorizing everybody.
Haba it ain't fair.

Now its clear that Nigeria is not one. The southern governors are supporting the Nigeria security agencies to fight criminals in their States but the northern governors are sponsoring terrorism, kidnapping or either turning a blind eye to appointment of terrorists into federal political positions that had now made Nigeria a failed State.
