IPOB plans ‘peaceful’ protests today

The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said its members would begin peaceful protests across the ‘Biafra’ land today.

According to a statement issued by the spokesman of the pro-Biafra group, Emma Powerful, the protest, scheduled to hold in Benin, Enugu, Aba, Abakaliki, Umuahia, Nnewi, Uyo, Calabar, Onitsha and among others states is as a result of the killings, destruction and burning of private properties across ‘Biafraland’. 

Powerful, who also disclosed the protesters would also engage in a clean-up exercise to tidy up and clear the numerous mountains of rubbish in these cities, added that measures were also being put in place to protect the lives and properties of innocent citizens from being attacked by rented hoodlums and political thugs.

The group, in the statement however, stated that assets acquired with looted public funds by corrupt politicians will remain legitimate targets.
