Soldiers shot sporadically at our members in Owerri – IPOB
The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB has said that men of the Nigerian Army shot sporadically at its members during a burial ceremony in Owerri, Imo State.
This is contained in a press statement by IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, who stated that the Nigerian army and police have continued to push its members to the wall.
The statement reads:
“It is unbelievable that the Nigerian security operatives started shooting sporadically on people especially when they come across IPOB members gathering for burial at Orji road near flyover Owerri in Imo State to welcome the remains of our member, Mazi Onyekachukwu Uzoma who died after a brief illness in Enugu state.
“The Nigeria army and police SARS in their usual method started shooting sporadically at IPOB members whom they sighted in Owerri Imo State.
The Nigeria army and police have started once again to push us to the wall.
“IPOB is not happy any longer how Nigeria government and her partners in crime are killing Biafrans and other Christians in Nigeria.
“We are warning Nigeria government and her security operatives to stop attacking peaceful and innocent IPOB members because they will soon regret their actions. We are calling on the state governor Hope Uzodimma and commissioner of police in Imo State to release those arrested with bullets wounds at Orji road.
“We are equally calling Nigerians to prevail on Nigeria government and her security operatives release those dead bodies they killed during this attack in Owerri.
“We are wondering why Nigeria Hope Uzodimma the governor would allow such to happen. IPOB family members are peaceful and innocent since inception”.
