WATCH: IPOB Women Go Topless Over Military Harassment
A Facebook user streaming live from the venue of the Indigenous People of Biafra Women’s Conference in Abiriba, Abia State, is claiming the women are walking around topless.
The caption attached to the video alleged that men of the Nigerian army stormed the venue of the conference in Abiriba, and arrested their young ladies and mothers after assaulting them.
In the video live streamed by a Facebook user, Chukwuebuka Idoko, some of the women were seen unclad, chanting ‘disagreement songs’ in their indigenous language.
Meanwhile, IPOB has reacted to the alleged harassment by men of the Nigerian Army.
The group in a statement, said, "It condemns the barbaric and unprofessional conduct of the Nigerian Army located in Ohafia against the Biafran and IPOB Women General Meeting holding in Abiriba in Abia State.
"The Nigerian soldiers stormed the venue of the meeting with 20 Hilux vans and without provocation started beating, arresting and tearing the women's clothes off their bodies that resulted in some of them being stripped naked before taking them to their barrack.
"Food, clothing and accessories belonging to some of the women were seized by the mostly Northern Hausa Fulani soldiers and taken to the Ohafia Barracks in Abia State.
"We further gathered from an eye witness account present at the conference venue that some of the women who were arrested by the Nigerian Army were totally naked without anything on their body.
"This is the highest form of criminal brutality against Biafrans by Hausa Fulani dominated Nigeria security apparatus.
"We also call on Queen Elizabeth II of England, Theresa May the British Prime Minister, Angela Merkel the German Chancellor, and other notable women including human rights organisations across".
