www.odogwublog.com reports that the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) has released the names of the One Hundred and Twelve (112) Igbo women arrested, tortured and criminally incarcerated by the Police in Imo state.


Intersociety demanded for their immediate and unconditional release from the Owerri Prison custody and discontinuation of further harassment of such vulnerable members of the Nigerian Human Family even as it frowned at the hatchet job Magistrate S.K. Kadurumba allowed himself to be used even when he has no jurisdiction on the matter.

Intersociety called for an unreserved apologies and reparative packages for their wrongful detention and being labeled “terrorists” and “felons” in Government’s panicky and draconian response to their use of “braziers as human rights kits” to protest Government’s sundry atrocities against their children and husbands.
