According to eyewitness, five person have been killed (4 IPOB/MASSOB members and 1 Army) in a crash in Onitsha between IPOB/MASSOB members and the Nigerian Army joint task force. This happened yesterday while the Biafran group were celebration the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
People are already calling for the heads of the Nigerian forces for the incessant killing of innocent Nigerians who are protesting harmlessly for their various cause.
It would be recalled that the Nigerian Army over the weekend killed over 100 people in Kaduna, some of which were the sons of the Islamic Shiite leader in Nigeria, Ibraheem Zakzaky who also was seriously beaten up for obstructing the highway and preventing the Nigerian Army Chiefs from passing.
Another eyewitness however disputed the identity of those who was involved in the crash with the joint task force of the Nigerian Army, Navy, and Police in Onitsha saying “I can confirm to you that the people killed yesterday are Upper Iweka street boys who has nothing good to do with their time. How can you call a group of less than 15 boys IPOB? They might be MASSOB according to information, but not IPOB. They are just few jobless boys that want to disrupt the peace of people and commercial activities in the city.”
Mr Nnamdi Kanu was over the week discharged and acquitted with all charges against him dropped by the Nigerian government in what many sees as a reconciliation move.
