Operation ‘Python Dance’ killed my husband – Slain IPOB member’s wife

The wife of a member of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mrs
Chizoba Agbaisi, whose husband, Mrs Ifechukwu Agbaisi, was killed last
year by soldiers during the Operation Python Dance II, has stated that
her husband would have been alive if he listened to her advice on that
fateful day.

Mrs Agbaisi, a mother of three children, while interrogating her told newsmen that she
quarreled with her husband regularly over his passion for IPOB and their
strive for the attainment of Biafra Republic, adding that when he died,
she knew that he has been consumed by his passion.

The young widow, who was at the 10th anniversary of the establishment
of an Onitsha-based rights groups, International Society for Civil
Liberties and Rule of Law, Intersociety, told our correspondent 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.

She narrated, “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 Powerline 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, 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

She said up till date, she was still not aware of 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

were known to simply dump or even confiscate the bodies of their victims during the Operation Python Dance.

The widow 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 seven years old respectively.

Mr Emeka Umeagbalasi, chairman of Intersociety, explained that he
invited the widow to stand as a representative of victims of crime
against humanity and war crimes, to whom the organization dedicated its
10th anniversary.
