Nigerian Army Releases Picture Of Arrested IPOB Commander With Nnamdi Kanu

The Nigerian Army has arrested another IPOB strongman, Awurum Eze, who is the second-in-command to Ikonso Don. He was arrested by security agents in Abia State on Wednesday.

The Nigerian Army has released a picture of the criminal with the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nmandi Kanu. The military said Awurum has a direct communication link with Nnamdi Kanu. 

According to the statement released by the military on Thursday, Awurum sponsored numerous killings in Imo State and has been on the wanted list of security agents for more than three months. Many of the arrested IPOB/ESN members had earlier mentioned him as their key sponsor.

Awurum's arrest came a few weeks after the notorious IPOB commander, Ikonso Don, was neutralised by the military in Imo State. 

Many Nigerians have commended the military for arresting Awurum. They urged the soldiers to intensify their operations in the southeast and ensure peace returns to the region.
