The Nigerian Army has arrested a 42 years old man named Awurum Eze, a pillar in the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB movement. According to the Nigerian Army spokesman Brigadier General Mohammed Yerima, Awurum is a strong link in Biafra and a pro sponsored East Security Network intel.
The 48 years old Eze, a native of Umoneke Nta, Isiala-Mbano LGA, Imo State, had on the 4th of May 2021 escaped when operatives of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) stormed his village house in Isiala Mbano where he was hiding. After then, he was eventually apprehended on Wednesday, 12 May 2021, in Aba after weeks of unrelenting follow-ups by operatives.
