The sixteen female members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who were arraigned earlier today at the Magistrate court in Owerri, Imo state, discharged unconditionally. Their release sparked celebration among fellow pro-Biafran supporters.
The IPOB women were arrested and remanded in custody for demanding to know the whereabouts of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The women, who protested on the streets of Owerri last Friday before they were arrested and arraigned in court on Monday, also asked the Federal Government to conduct a referendum for the creation of the Independent State of Biafra.
They threatened that the 2019 general elections would not hold if the referendum was not conducted.
