Nnamdi Kanu’s strike Force, IPOB on Wednesday attacked riot policemen patrol vehicle at Oyigbo Junction in Port Harcourt where their procession to Aba was interrupted on Tuesday.

They killed a policeman during an early morning “surprise attack” on riot policemen at Oyigbo Junction in Port Harcourt.

    IPOB MEMBERS, UNARMED, WERE able to attack a police patrol team and kill one of them, took away his gun and burnt down their patrol van, and the police did not even kill any of them IPOB men. I am just amazed. I must admit I hate the turn of things these past few days. But I suspect the media is now being used to project IPOB as a terrorist group. What kind of skewed report is this?

    This is fake, where is the dead body and what is the name of the criminal police killed? I just hope is true and that is called safe defence. When the government armed illitrate fulani herdmen dressed them as police and army to go after the igbos,

    The buhari brothers think that they are the only onces that like war, britain and obj brothers help you fought the first one and it end no victor no vanquished. It is not always who call for war wins,America entered viatinam and left in shame.
    Do not attack an innocent people because GOd will fight for them.

    I think it is time for the military to consider coming back to power, this ineffective type of government (democracy) is just too weak for Nigeria. Let them come back and suppress every form of animalistic uprising, Nigeria is not the only country going through hardship in the world, law and order must be respected all the time! Ritual killings, kidnappings, Boko haram, IPOB and other disturbing devilish trends are are making Nigerians less human. It is embarrassing that our leaders are not doing anything about these developments, this country is a complete disappointment!

      Danti, I thought I’m the only one suggesting the total phasing out of democracy government in this Country because it doesn’t work and it won’t work. When this Country was under Military rule, all these lawlessness was under control. Although the Military top men have sold their dignity became more corrupt just like their politician counterparts but there was an orderliness and discipline.

      All our current politicians are not even discussing about safety and protection of their people, the crime rate is surging and everybody is taking law into his/her hand. They are more interesting in money and how to fill up their foreign account. If nothing can be done to our economy right now, I don’t think we should compound the present outrageous recession with anarchy. When the present administration locked this guy up for treason, many people were calling Buhari’s all sort of names. Immediately he secured temporary half way house released, he became a terror. This is a wrong time for ethnic war. We have so many irresponsible leaders and law makers doing nothing, collecting free money yet we want this Country to forge ahead.

      The problem of this Country is not about separation but leadership. After actualizing IPOB the problem of leadership will bring all the struggle to fruitless effort. This guy Kanu thought war is comparable to Apu or Ogbonna soup, let him go and ask Syria people, knowing what they know now, they would have left Bashar Al-Assad alone as their leader. That Country can never be the same again.

    This is the music Buhari and IG is planning, if any human being attack me whether civilian or soldier with weapon of any form for no reason, I will look for the same weapon to protect myself or to attack back, No law in Nigeria people that suppose to keep peace in the country are the one causing trouble in Nigeria, did Afara ukwu sound like sambisa in the ear of Buhari? With hearing aid he is still deaf.
