Repeated calls to Brigadier-General, Onyema Nwachukwu, spokesperson of the Nigerian Army, went unanswered. Also, an SMS sent to his line did not receive a reply.

It is not yet clear why Richards was arrested, as the pro-Biafra group he leads is not outlawed. He recently formed an alliance with a controversial separatist, Simon Ekpa.

Last week, Richards had raised alarm about his likely arrest.

Recently, the Nigerian Army and Police reportedly ransacked communities in the Bakassi peninsula in an attempt to arrest the leader.

He has been arrested twice in the region.
