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?”
