Enemies of Israel in the Nigerian Government Are Using DSS to Suppress Thos Practicing Judaism - IPOB


The Indigenous People of Biafra has reacted to the renewed illegal arrests and harassment going on in Biafra land where the Nigerian government through the DSS went to worship places and whisked away a good number of worshipers.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Wednesday pointed out that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government is persecuting people of the South East.
 IPOB made the said this in reaction to the arrest of its members from the Shalom Synagogue Church of Israel in Aba, Abia State.

Emma Powerful explained that it was unfortunate that the Nigerian government through the instrumentality of the police and the Department of State Services, DSS, have reduced themselves to playing the role of religious police.

In a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, attention is drawn to the fact that the police and DSS have effectively constituted themselves into instruments with which enemies of Israel in the Nigerian government are now using to suppress those practicing Judaism.

The statement reads, “It is on record that IPOB activities are firmly anchored on the finest Judeo-Christian traditions, which has made Biafrans and IPOB in particular the target of these state sponsored indiscriminate and arbitrary arrests of innocent civilians by agents of Nigerian government in pursuit of an Islamist agenda. There have been repeated raids of synagogues and places of worship in Aba and Igweocha (Port Harcourt) respectively.

“Security operatives whose constitutional role is to protect the lives and property of citizens, have now turned to instruments of oppression against innocent civilian populations.
“Arresting members of Shalom Christian Church because they are connected to the Jews in Israel is religious discrimination of the worst kind. Every religion has a root and in as much as nobody can deny that Saudi Arabia is the root of Islam, nobody can deny that Israel is the foundation of both Judaism and later Christianity. Discrimination based on religious affiliation to Israel is misplaced and a crime against the very principles of freedom of worship and association.
