Solomon Arase Declared ‘Wanted’ 24 Hours After Retirement As IGP

share on:

Barely a day after his retirement as the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, has been declared wanted by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Vanguard gathered that the leadership of the IPOB, on Thursday, said it has directed all its members worldwide to closely monitor the movements and whereabouts of Arase, in order to have him arrested and arraigned at the International Criminal Court (ICC) as soon as an international bench warrant is issued for his arrest.

In a statement signed by its spokesman, Dr. Clifford Iroegbu, the IPOB stressed that the rationale behind its 24-hour surveillance on Arase was due to his alleged connection to the extra-judicial killings of over 1,000 pro-Biafra agitators between July, 2015 and May 30, 2016.

The statement read: “it is very important to keep a record of his movements so that when the ICC finally issues the long-awaited international warrant order for his arrest, it will be easy to locate, apprehend, handcuff and fly him to the Hague for prosecution at the ICC”.

“If anyone happens to see him fleeing the country, please make calls to alert IPOB officials. For those who do not know the atrocious crimes committed by him (Arase), we have posted two of his pictures and the pictures of some of the victims he shot dead because we believe that pictures speak more than a thousand words.”
