Amnesty International says it has acknowleged the release of three persons arrested in Imo River community, Abia State in 2020, by officers of the Nigerian Army, two and half years ago.
The International agency then urged the Nigerian government to provide information about the status of other victims of enforced disappearance and incommunicado detention.
Sunday Nwafor, 59; Uzonwanne Ejiofor, 48; and Wilfred Dike, 36 were released on Wednesday to Amnesty International.
The trio were held at 14 Brigade Nigerian Army Ohafia, Abia State for over two and half years.
The organisation in a tweet via its verified Twitter account, asked Nigerian authorities to grant other victims of “enforced disappearance and incommunicado detention” lawyers and access to their families or release them from detention.
Amnesty International tweeted that the trio’s “release follows Amnesty International’s campaign and call for their freedom, including, as recently as two weeks ago.
