Rivers: Pro-Biafra Agitators Take Over Oyigbo LGA

The Rivers State Government has condemned the harassment and intimidation of residents of the state by pro-Biafra agitators under the guise of protesting for a sovereign state of Biafra.
This was contained in a statement by the state Commissioner for Information, Dr Tam George, in Port Harcourt, the state capital on Saturday.
Some angry pro-Biafra protesters at the weekend attacked some residents of Oyigbo City in the State, forcing them to close their businesses and join in the protests calling for the immediate release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who has been in custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
The angry protesters had carried placards with different inscriptions such as; “free Kanu now”, “please don’t kill our leader”, “release Kanu to attend to his health”.
But George while condemning the act said the ban on illegal processions remained in force and vowed that government would deal with anybody that flouts the order.
“It has come to the attention of the Rivers State government that some pro-Biafra agitators have resorted to illegal procession and assaulted law abiding citizens and residents of the state”
“Governor Nyesom Wike strongly condemns the acts of criminality perpetrated by pro-Biafra agitators by whatever name in the Oyigbo area of the state,”
The Commissioner further disclosed that the state government had directed all security agencies in the state to arrest and prosecute the agitators who flout the ban on illegal and separatist processions and demonstrations in the state.
