Anambra protestsBy EMEKA OKONKWO
ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Biafra Nations Youth League has alerted the international community to the alleged killing of women by police during a recent protest in the Anambra State.

It condemned in “strong terms” the alleged killing of the women that were demanding the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Radio Biafra (RB).

It could not be ascertained how many were killed.

“We condemn the killing of Biafran women protesters in Anambra State by Nigeria Security operatives as instructed by (President) Muhammadu Buhari. We call on the international community to rise against this wicked act by Nigeria Government before it results to another war. It seems Nigeria don’t understand the word peace,” said the league’s Public Relations Officer, Aghaulor Godspower.

The Department of State Services operatives recently arrested Kanu after returning from the United Kingdom, where he is based.

Government has deemed his station illegal.

Comment could not be obtained from authorities.

IPOB is a separatist movement.

Biafra, was a secessionist state in south eastern Nigeria that existed from 1967 to 1970.

Some organisations are advocating for a separate country for the Igbo people, a majority in the area, accusing the government of marginalising the Igbo people.
