DSS arrests Victor Umeh for sponsoring MASSOB, IPOB


The Department of State Services, DSS, has arrested Sir Victor Umeh. He was picked up at his Enugu residence Thursday afternoon.

Umeh, a former chairman of APGA is the party’s candidate for the postponed Anambra Central Senatorial District re-run election.

His media aide, Mr. Stan Okeke, who confirmed the arrest to journalists in Enugu said it was sequel to a petition by Senator Uche Ekwunife, former Governor Peter Obi and Uzu Awka.

According to Okeke, Umeh is being accused of sponsoring the recent pro-Biafra activities of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB and the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

He, however, said that contrary to reports that Umeh was handcuffed and was flown to Abuja, “They travelled by road and as I speak with you
(8.25PM), they are still on their way to Abuja”.
