Men of the Nigerian Army and Police stormed a church in session in Enugu state on Sunday morning, May 30, and reportedly arrested over 50 members alleging that the members are members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The arrested members who were still worshipping in the church on Owerri Road, Enugu, were stunned when the church service was brought to a halt by the soldiers and policemen.
In a video currently trending, it shows policemen and soldiers ordering male members of the church to raise their hands as they marched out of the church.
An anonymous source told SaharaReporters that the arrested worshippers were men, both young and old;
The source said;
“The Nigeria police and military have just stormed a church in Owerri Road, Enugu State, molesting over 50 men, both old and young while matching them to an unknown destination.
It also alerted the public that the arrested worshippers had no arms and therefore no harm should be done to them.
“We are bringing this to the attention of the world. The lives of these men should not be wasted for no crime committed. They were only at a place of worship today being Sunday the 30th of May 2021 and no arms were found with them.”
