Stop killing IPOB members, CD warns security agencies

Stop killing IPOB members, CD warns security agencies

Campaign for De­mocracy, CD, yes­terday condemned what it termed indis­criminate shootings and killings of members of In­digenous People of Biafra, IPOB, by those it identi­fied as Nigerian security forces.
CD specifically men­tioned the recent invasion of IPOB meeting venue in Asaba, Delta State by soldiers, opening fire on them, killing some, injur­ing some and arresting others, for no just course.
In a press statement is­sued yesterday in Onit­sha, Anambra State, CD’s National Publicity Secre­tary, Dede Uzor A. Uzor, recalled that no single person was shot or killed during the recent nation­wide protest in Abuja, La­gos, Benin and other parts of the country, in favour or against the federal gov­ernment over the present economic recession in the country.
He, therefore wondered why IPOB members that were unarmed should be killed at any slightest provocation.
According to CD: “What have the unarmed IPOB members done to warrant opening fire on them at any time they are in a meeting, conducting a prayer procession or car­rying out a peaceful dem­onstration?”
