Family members and friends of a staunch member of the Indigenous People of Biafra ( IPOB), Mr Madu Manuel Sunday, who has been missing since 2016 has cried to the Federal Government to bring him back dead or alive.
The family alleged that he has not returned home or be seen after his house in Umunneochi, Anambra State, was raided by security agencies since 2016.
According to the family, during the raid, three people were reportedly killed while many were injured.
The family also alleged that on February 3, this year at about 2 pm, security agents still stormed Sunday’s residents claiming that they were still searching for IPOB members who the Federal Government had declared a terrorist organization since September 20, 2017.
A spokesman for the family, John Sunday said: ” We have been searching for our brother, an Engineer since 2016 that his house was raided. We have not reached him, our patience has worn through. We can no longer bear the pains.Joint security operation carried out the inversion of his home where a lot of casualties was recorded
” Sunday was last seen in public since 2016. He was being hunted by the government because of his roles and participation in the 2011 General election. His brothers and mother were not spared as they are being harassed by security agents. One of his aides, Segum Timothy, was killed by gunmen who also stormed his Lagos residence. What offense has he committed, rather than the facts that he was a front line campaigner for the actualization of the IPOB and that they were using his residence for Umunneochi chapter monthly meeting by IPOB?
Also, his political activities posed a threat to the ruling party. His country home has been locked up and under siege, since he defected from the All Nigerians Peoples Party to All Progressive Grand Alliance in 2005. The development did not go down well with some politicians in Nigeria as APGA is perceived as an Igbo agenda party and sympathetic to the agitation of Biafra Republic. We want our brother dead or alive. His whereabouts cannot just remain a misery “.
