HELP! 47 Boko Haram prisoners FINALLY arrive Anambra prison by night

-More coming to south east prisons
There are strong indications that despite the mass protest which was witnessed in various cities across anambra sgtate last Saturday, about 47 Boko Haram prisoners were late Sunday night transferred to ekwulobia prison in Anambra State.
A source from Ekwulobia said it was late in the night that the prisoners were escorted into the prison amidst heavy security, which was the reason inhabitants of the area concluded that the much dreaded terrorists may have atlast been brought to town.
Though prisons authority refused to confirm the arrival of the prisoners, a visit to Ekwulobia Prisons showed abnormal security presence that betrayed the arrival.
The Deputy Controller in charge of ekwulobia prisons, Mr Pascal Ibegbulem could not be reached, a senior prisons official in Awka who sought anonymity said it was not true as no prisoners have been shipped to the prison.
A human right activits and Chairman board of trustees of International Society for Civil Liberties and the rule of Law, Comrade Emeka Umeagbalasi who alerted journalists about the arrival of the prisoners said it was true.
Umeagbalasi said though only 47 prisoners were brought to ekwulobia prison, there are several Boko Haram prisoners who are still waiting to be transferred to various prisons in the South East. He said Okigwe, Aba and other prisons around the south east will get more number soon.
He insisted that the transfer was politically motivated and that it was a post war vendetta being embarked upon by President Buhari who is known to have participated actively in the war.
He also added that it was also the price the south east will pay for not voting president Buhari, and that it was unfortunate that the people of the south east could be so greatly targeted for punishments for exercising their freedom to vote.
“You can now see that the Presidency reaction, the NPS and the APC reaction which stated that the prisoner transfer news was all rumour has now been corroborated. They Wanted something secret but were surprised that it was let open. The denial was just damage control, and I think the presidency may have called prisons authority to deny it.
“This is A post civil war vendetta politic and Buhari is on a revenge mission to the people of the South east for not voting him and there is no justification for such to be done. The prisoners are still being tried in various states in the North where they committed the atrocities, and there should not be brought here as they cannot be tried in states where they did not commit the crime.
“What the president is doing is another way of escalating and expanding the boko haram thing and we are very densely populated unlike north, so if the boko Haram make an inroad here there will be very gruesome killings.
