Amnesty Int’l, SERAP Alleges Shooting Of Civilians In Oyigbo, River State Of Nigeria

Unic Press UK: Amnesty International, SERAP and several others have alleged that the Nigerian military is invading private homes in Oyigbo Local Government Area, a part of Rivers States of Nigeria with the massive presence of the Igbo tribe.

Following widespread allegations that the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, is responsible for the Oyigbo mayhem, because he is the chief security officer of the state, the state government issued a statement.

In a statement signed by the Special Assistant (Media) to the Rivers State Governor, Kelvin Ebiri, the Government denied responsibility for the grave situation in Oyigbo.

“…the narrative that Igbos were being killed by the military is intended to shift attention from the despicable activities of IPOB – Indigenous People of Biafra – in Oyigbo.”

The state government added that “IPOB killed 6 Army Officers and 4 Police Officers.” 

In a tweet on the situation in Oyigbo, where a majority of the inhabitants are Igbo – one of the three major tribes in the country – the self-acclaimed supreme leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, said:

“As usual, Nigeria’s media houses have been encouraging @GovWike  in his genocide at #obigbo with their criminal silence. I find this immoral stance nauseating. It seems horrors of this magnitude has to be witnessed in Lagos before it gets reported. @GovWike is a mass murderer.”
