“These innocent Biafran youths are taken to the Department of State Services, DSS, dungeons and Army barracks particularly the dreaded Abatti Barracks in Abuja, where they are dehumanized and tortured in secret cells.
 
“Currently, over 100 innocent Biafran youths are being detained incommunicado at the DSS Headquarters in Abuja, over 400 others have been detained at the Abatti Barracks Abuja cell since this year.
 
“Intelligence report gathered by IPOB intelligence unit and reliable source indicate that some wicked DSS agents and Army personnel are killing some of the youths.
 
“These people are currently detained since February this year after they were arrested in Imo State and taken to Abatti Barracks Abuja by Intelligence Response Team, IRT, Unit of the Nigerian Police, where they are kept with many others.

“Seven persons have been slaughtered in the past two weeks according to intelligence report available to us. We are also alerting the world about the atrocities going on in Nigeria against the people of Biafra.
 
“We call on the United Nations, Amnesty International, and the global community to prevail on Nigeria to send all these innocent Biafran youths languishing in various secret cells to court for trial instead of subjecting them to extra-judicial killings.”
