Police Kill 5 Biafran Activists In Aba During Peaceful Protest Against Nnamdi Kanu's Detention

There was anarchy in Aba, the commercial city of Abia State, as a combined security force shot dead five members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who were calmly protesting the release of their detained leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Protesters, mostly young men and women, held a peaceful demonstration in Aba on Friday, March 31, chanting songs demanding the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

The protesters sang and danced through the streets of Aba in a video that has gone viral on social media, demanding the release of their leader, Kanu, who has been detained by the DSS since June 2021 despite court orders to release him.

Also, gunshots were heard in another video, and a voice behind the video said they were being shot at by Nigerian security who had come to disperse them from protesting.

According to some residents who verified the gunshots, there were no fatalities, but the protesters were being shot at by a combined team of police and military along Osusu by Faulks road in Aba.

Another source, Celestine Omeje, said he saw five protesters killed as they were being moved into waiting trucks of the soldiers.

According to him, "I can authoritatively inform you that the operatives killed five protesters and carried their bodies to their vehicle. 

"More people could have been killed but I saw five people which the soldiers were carrying to their vehicles. I don't why there was shooting and killing. The protesters were adorned with white clothes and they were only singing and dancing.

"Why every little thing the security agencies shoot and kill Igbo youths for no justifiable reason. In Lagos Igbo youths are being killed and properties and business being burnt systematically, security agencies have not arrested anyone or made any comment. It is unacceptable and condemnable."

According to report, when the Spokesman of the Abia State Police Command, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna was contacted on telephone, he confirmed the incident but couldn't provide any details.

He said, "I will soon issue statement on the incident."
