Security operatives on Sunday raided a church on Owerri Road, Enugu State, and marched suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra away.

A trending video on the raid showed the security operatives, especially armed policemen ordering members of the church out one after the other.

The church members clutching their Bibles were seen raising their hands and being searched as they were being led away by gun-wielding security operatives.

“The Nigeria police and military have just stormed a church on Owerri Road, Enugu State, molesting over 50 men, both old and young while matching them to an unknown destination.

“We are bringing this to the attention of the world. The lives of these men should not be wasted for no crime committed. They were only at a place of worship today being Sunday the 30th of May 2021 and no arms were found with them,” a source told SaharaReporters.

However, the police said 54 persons were brought to Headquarters for questioning for “gathering unlawfully” at Owerri Road, Ogui, Enugu.

Without making reference to the incident in the church, the Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, in the statement, said, “54 persons were seen to be unlawfully gathered at Owerri Road, Ogui, Enugu, and brought to Headquarters for questioning."
