IPOB: Fresh Confession By Suspect Vindicates Eze Nwokocha

IPOB: Fresh Confession By Suspect Vindicates Eze Nwokocha

Chinwendu Nwagwu A.K.A Onye Army suspected to be a member of the Indigenous people of Biafra IPOB, has vindicated Eze Leo Nwokocha and Eze Mmirioma.

The suspect in a fresh confession disclosed that he implicated the traditional rulers because he felt they were the masterminds of his arrest.

According to an independent investigation by our correspondent, the suspect made the fresh confession while being subjected to more interrogations by the police in Owerri.

It can be recalled that the acclaimed IPOB member, Chinwendu Nwagwu A.K.A Onye Army from Umunneato Nguru Autonomous community was arrested by the Army on Friday 23rd December 2022 in his hometown when he returned home to bury his father.

He was reportedly a lance Corporal who left the Army in 2013 without handing over his kits but was accused of using them to terrorize the society.

In his first confession when he was paraded by the police, he mentioned Eze Leo Nwokocha as one of their sponsors who gave them one hundred and twenty thousand (#120,000) through one Mr. Ihedioha whom he described as their coordinator in Mbaise.

He also implicated Eze Mmirioma who was also arrested but has been released by the police but Eze Nwokocha who is the chairman of Mbaise council of Traditional Rulers is still detained by the police.

But in a fresh confession, the suspect vindicated Eze Nwokocha, and described his earlier confession as an effort to implicate and tarnish the image of the traditional ruler by saying that he sponsored their activities.

The confession

as learnt was also recorded by the police who are yet to release the video.
But efforts to reach the police Public Relations Officer Imo state CSP Michael Abattam over the unconfirmed development has not yielded result.

Meanwhile, the people of Mbaise in Imo state have questioned why the security agencies were quick to broadcast the first video where the traditional rulers were accused of sponsoring IPOB but have continued to delay in circulating the recent video where the suspect later vindicated them.

The request came from some indigenes of Mbaise during an interview conducted randomly by our correspondent.

One of the people who only gave his name as Ifeanyi, from Ibeku Aboh Mbaise suspected that the arrest and continued detention of Eze Leo Nwokocha might be unconnected to his refusal to lead other traditional rulers in Mbaise to give chieftaincy title to His Excellency Governor Hope Uzodinma.

“Yes, after being vindicated there is no other thing which could have still kept the traditional ruler in detention if not from the Governor whom the Imo state House of Assembly has given too much powers to detain people at his will,” the source suspected.

Another source who did not want his name mentioned also suspected that Eze Nwokocha’s continued detention could be a witch-hunt; considering that he does not bootlick the Governor like others he described as ‘sycophant’ traditional rulers in Imo state.

He explained that Mbaise People would no longer tolerate unlawful detention of their revered traditional ruler after he must have been vindicated by investigations.
