The country’s south-eastern region is in shambles. Since the civil war ended in 1970, there have been no such killings in the east. Residents are abducted from their homes and slaughtered by both known and unknown gunmen, with scores of unidentified bodies placed in mortuaries every day.

Residents are living in dread, and victims’ families are pleading for justice as indiscriminate arrests of innocent civilians continue. In the region, there is a storey of sadness, tears, and blood.

In Abia, Edith Amadi, 46, described how her son, Onyebuchi Anthony Amadi, 27, and nephew, Obinna Onyebuchi Egekwu, 30, were purportedly killed by security forces during the attack on the State CID by unknown gunmen. The widow, from Oforola in Imo State’s Owerri West Local Government Area, lost her spouse in 2009.

Her son, nephew, and another boy just known as “Onye Photo” (photography) were arrested at their family house at Ugwunchara Umuahia, she added, accusing the Nigerian Army of murdering her son and others in cold blood.

Her son and other victims hauled away from their family home were not members of the gang of unknown gunmen that supposedly stormed the police station, according to the window, and she questioned the justification for their extrajudicial killings.


According to a special report signed by Emeka Umeagbalasi, Chinwe Umeche, and Chidimma Udegbunam from the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law, the rights group had graphic details of how soldiers, police, and other Nigerian security operatives currently deployed in the East abducted and allegedly killed innocent citizens.

According to the report, “these have resulted in at least 170 open killings, secret abduction and permanent disappearance of at least 550 people, and general arrest/abduction of at least 2100 people.”

“The arrested/abducted are currently being imprisoned in various open and secret dungeons both within and outside the East, including Makurdi Prisons in Benue State, where over 300 were recently discovered to have been transported and imprisoned. Other detention facilities in Abuja, Niger State, and other undisclosed places in the north include conventional and unusual military, police, and SSS holding facilities.

They are also in state CIDs in Owerri, Awka, Port Harcourt, and Abakiliki, as well as prisons and correctional facilities such as Owerri Prisons, which contain over 130 people, including 107 who were remanded just a few days ago.

“Shockingly, not less than 30 open and secret killings by troops and police have occurred in the last week, from Monday, May 24th, to Sunday, May 30th, 2021, with the majority occurring in Imo State, where scores of corpses have been freshly traced to the mortuaries of Government Medical Centers.

The victims of extrajudicial executions include innocent civilians who were “killed after the fact” at crime scenes and erroneously branded as heroes. The data presented here pertains to the first five months of 2021 or January to May 2021.”

“Intersociety investigated and discovered the following: Since January 2021, soldiers, police, and other security operatives have openly shot and killed over 170 people in the two regions, with at least 145 of them being innocent citizens or victims of extrajudicial killings, and 25 others being combatively involved.

“That: the named security agencies have abducted over 2100 people and falsely labelled over 90% of them as “ESN hoodlums/terrorists,” including over 300 people who were recently dumped in faraway Makurdi Prisons in Benue State, over 70 people who were dumped at Awka State CID, and over 107 others who were recently remanded in Owerri Prisons after “mobile court” mumbo jumbo arraignment.”

“That: military were responsible for the majority of abductions and disappearances, including at least 550 individuals who have gone missing since January 2021 or are suspected of being victims of unlawful executions. That over 90% of those paraded by military and police as “ESN hoodlums/terrorists” are innocent, as are over 90% of the bodies labelled as “ESN hoodlums killed in a gun duel with security forces.” “They are victims of ‘after the act’ crime scene shootings and murders,” they claimed.

“The six innocent individuals of Imo State who were wrongfully arrested and erroneously labelled by the Imo State Command have been released,” they stated. Five of the six were released from Imo State CID Headquarters and Owerri Correctional Headquarters or Prisons late last night, June 3rd, 2021. Smith Amadikwa, Casmir Ugbor, Ojukwu Ukonu, Emeka Mbonu, and Engineer Ikechukwu Okomah are the five freshly freed innocent persons. They were wrongfully detained on the 12th, 13th, 14th, 13th, and 19th of May 2021, and publicly paraded on the 28th of May 2021, erroneously described as “ESN hoodlums that stormed Imo State Correctional/Prisons Headquarters and others.”


In response to the recent spate of insecurity at the region, the Catholic Archbishop of Owerri Ecclesiastical Province, Most Rev. Anthony J. V. Obinna, bemoaned the reckless and covert disposal of 35 unidentified bodies in the Federal Medical Centre mortuary in Owerri in a matter of days.
