The Enugu State Police has confirmed that the arrest of Benjamin Onwuka, the leader of Biafran Zionist Movement (BZM).

Ebere Amaraizu, the Spokesman of Enugu State Police Command, confirmed Onwuka’s arrest in a statement he circulated to journalists in Enugu.

It was gathered that Onwuka and members of his group were marching to Enugu State Government House to hoist Biafran flag when they were arrested.

In the statement, Amaraizu, a Superintendent of Police (SP), confirmed that Onwuka was arrested alongside 21 of his followers, based on the intelligence information.

He recalled that Onwuka has been evading trial in a court of competent court of jurisdiction over his alleged role of murder, armed robbery and unlawful possession of firearms before he resurfaced on Wednesday and fell into the hands of the eagle eyed security operatives of the command.

“Suspects are helping the operatives in their investigations” he said.

Meanwhile, Amaraizu said there was movement of vehicles, commuters and traders within and outside Enugu metropolis contrary to the early threat and order of sit-at-home.

He said security operatives were seen at strategic places just as shops, media houses, markets and banks were open to the members of the public.
