IPOB Members Grounds Economic Activity in Port-Harcourt

Pro-Biafra Group Protesting in Aba

Yesterday being 9th November, 2015, the members of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) whose leader, Director Nnamdi Kanu is in DSS detention took over the city of Aba and brought the economic activity to a hut. Today, they are in Port-Harcourt to continue the protest against the wickedness unleashed on innocent Biafrans by the Nigerian Government led by President Buhari.

As we write now, Pro-Biafra group called IPOB have taken over the Aba, Obigbo axis of Igwocha, Port-Harcourt to declare their grievances over the arrest and detention of Nnamdi Kanu and other Biafrans and to show the International bodies of their willingness to discontinue their existence with the British project called Nigeria.

Despite the over 50 military and police trucks and armoured tanks that conveyed personnel to the busy Eleme Junction to prevent the protesters from getting to Government House, Port Harcourt, where they insist they must see Governor Nyesom Wike, the protesters have continued to dare the military who are sophisticated with weapons even without a single arm. To scare the protesters, the military and the police have continued to fire bullets in the air and teargas everywhere.

The protest crippled movement of people who have business and social activities in and around Aba, Oyigbo and the East West road Eleme and Onne.

An eyewitness said that “thousands of protesters coming from Aba, Abia State seem to have overwhelmed the security men who are reluctant to use maximum force. Please nobody should dare come near Aba-Port Harcourt/Expressway or Okporo road. As I call you now, I am speaking from where I am taking cover to avoid stray bullets from obviously infuriated security men who are being dared by pro-Biafra youths from Aba who had grounded business and social activities in the commercial city of Aba.”

However, IPOB have promised to continue the protest throughout the week if Nnamdi Kanu is not unconditionally released.

So far, the protest has been peaceful if not for the interference of the military and the Nigerian police who thought by firing bullets, they will scare the Biafra protesters away. Yes. The protest yesterday in Aba was very peaceful – not even one person was injured.
