Intersociety marks 10 years anniversary, as woman narrates how Army shot and killed husband, member of IPOB

www.odogwublog.com reports that International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law ( Intersociety) on Sunday marked its 10th year anniversary of its existence with a chilling story of a wife of a member of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mrs ChizobaAgbaisi whose husband, Mr Ifechukwu Agbaisi was killed last year by soldiers, during the operation python dance.



Chairman of BOT of Intersociety Comrade Emeka Umeagbalasi, earlier in his statement said he invited the widow to stand as a representative of victims of crime against
humanity and war crimes, to whom the organization dedicates its 10th
anniversary.
 

Mrs Agbaisi, mother of three children in an interview with
newsmen in Onitsha during the anniversary said she quarreled with her husband regularly over his passion for IPOB and their strive for the attainment of Biafra Republic, and that when he died, she knew he was consumed by his passion.

She revealed that her husband would have been alive if he had listened to her advise on that fateful
day.

The young widow who was at the 10th anniversary said that on
the day of her husband’s death, she had warned him about his passion
for Biafra, but he rebuked her, and the subject almost caused a family
feud between them.

“I was in my shop in Aba on that fateful day when I received a call
from an unknown person, asking me to come to Isiala Ngwa in Abia State
and identify a corpse which may be my husband’s own.

“We had left the house on that day, and while my husband went to his
shop at the shoe section of Power line at Ariaria, and the children
went to school and I to my shop. But not long after, my husband called
me and said he was heading to Umuahia, that their leader, Nnamdi Kanu
had summoned them to Umuahia.

“I prayed for him and told him God would lead him, but after about an
hour, he called again and told me there was trouble, and that he may
not return the same day, and that I should go and pick up the children
from school, and I agreed.”

She added that she did not know it would be the last time she would
see her husband, but when she received a call asking her to come and
identify her husband’s corpse, she knew the unthinkable had happened.

“When I got to the hospital, I was just told that a soldier brought
his corpse to the morgue and asked the attendant to deposit the corpse
there and also gave him his(My husband’s) phone, asking him to contact
his relatives, then added that my husband was a great man, before
leaving.”
She said up till date, she was still not aware the circumstances that
led to her husband’s death, but it still remained a puzzle to her that
a soldier could take the corpse to the mortuary, when they(soldiers)
were known to simply dump or even confiscate the bodies of their
victims during the operation python dance exercise.
She said she has been struggling hard to meet family needs since the
death of her husband on 12th September 2017, with her three children
aged 12, 10 and 7 years old respectively.
