A pro-Biafra activist, Emeka Gift, says the world will know when members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) decide to pick up arms.
Gift, who is the founder of Family Writers, a pro-Biafra news website, made this comment on social media network, Instagram.
Concise News reports that the statement of the pro-Biafra activist is coming after members of his group clashed with officers of the Nigerian Police during its procession last week in Nnewi, Anambra State.
Speaking on the incident, the Anambra Police command said a policeman died in the protest while a Divisional Police Officer in the area was hospitalised following injuries sustained in the clash. It was learned that IPOB members also sustained injuries.
In the wake of the attack, the Anambra state police command arrested 33 suspected IPOB members and paraded them on Sunday.
The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, also directed an urgent recovery of two AK47 rifles and a Berretta piston allegedly snatched from a slain police officer and others by suspected the IPOB members.
Apparently reacting to the clash, Gift uploaded a video of the procession and captioned it: “Any day our people will decide to pick arms, the world will know.”
The statement of the pro-Biafra activist is coming at the time the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, said members of his group will confront officers of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) if they are attacked again.
