Group protest in Abuja over killed Gunmen in Aba, calls for Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest (Video)
Some Nigerians on Thursday led a protest to British Embassy Abuja over the killing of some Igbo Youths by Police-military joint operation in Aba, Abia State.
The group said to be Igbo Youths in Nigeria and Diaspora led by one Chukwuma Dika lamented over the continued killing of Igbo youths under the watch of Nnamdi Kanu’s led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The military had earlier drafted security personnel to Aba over the rising killing of Policemen in the state by unknown armed men.
Based on reports, early on Wednesday, it was gathered that both police and soldiers in a combined operation launched an attack in a camp within Ariaria Aba believed to be ESN base killing eleven people.
Though, IPOB in a separate report through the group’s media and publicity secretary disassociated men of the Eastern Security Network, adding that the victims are not its members.
The protestors stated the reason for the protest was against IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu and ‘his criminality’ in the society. He said Kanu can not be safe in another country and be sending ‘the ignorant youths to go and die over nothing’.
They alleged the director of Radio Biafra is presently hitting up the polity and causing hatred among Nigerians.
Further added that they gathered to protest for the peace of the country and to prevent obvious war.
