September 12, 2017 – Photos: IPOB Members Attack Hausas In Port Harcourt Rivers State After Soldiers Disrupt Procession To Aba

Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) today allegedly clashed with the Hausa community in Oyibo Local Government Area of Rivers. An eyewitness, who simply identified himself as Frank, told newsmen that the incident left many injured from both sides.

He said the incident started when the suspected members of IPOB gathered at Timber Junction awaiting other members to join a procession to Aba, Abia.

“Thereafter, soldiers rounded up the IPOB members using force to disperse the gathering and leaving many IPOB members injured. “A deadly confrontation immediately ensued between IPOB members and soldiers and ultimately led to some members venting their anger on the Hausa community in the area,” he said.

Another eyewitness, Ibiere Tamuno, said that several properties were destroyed during the clash.

According to her, the clash began around 1 p.m. and lasted few hours before the intervention of the army, police and other security agencies. NAN learnt that Oyibo section of the Aba-Port Harcourt expressway was shut down with human and vehicular movement restricted. Col. Aminu Illiyasu, the Spokesman for 6 Division of Nigerian Army, Port Harcourt, confirmed the clash and added that troops were deployed to restore law and order in the area.

“We learnt that some IPOB members disturbed the peace by attacking the Hausa community and threatening to burn down a mosque in Oyibo Local Government Area in Rivers. “We are yet to confirm if anyone was injured or killed during the clash but be assured that normalcy is currently being restored to the area.

“I am still awaiting the full report of event and as such details are still sketchy at the moment,” he said. Iliyasu said deployment of troops to the area was unconnected to Operation Python Dance, currently on-going in five states of the Southeast zone.

  4. There is a bird in igbo land called OBU, this bird kills snake and when the bird was asked how is it possible that you can kill snakes, OBU said because each person has power in different places.

    Biafra is pregnant and is in labour right now, in few months he will deliver a twin boys.

  5. That man buhari has no single atom of leadership in him. Since he become the pres. It been from one problem to the other, no skills on how to handle situations in fact he has been the one causing problems and crisises all over the country. Sometimes I wander how Nigerians were brainwashed to have voted for this man who has not improved himself academically or other wise since he left office in the 80s and they think he has anything to offer. The little lift up we are seeing right now is VP hand work, as far as I am concern this man has nothing to offer( he is a disaster). Even though I’m not a supporter of any nigeria politician, his predecessor’s worst are better than his best. I’m an advocate of independent candidate(s). Tired of all these thieves parties keep presenting with no aim of bettering the nation and no future plans,rather, they are after their own pockets.

  6. every police commisioner in south east is Hausa,this is not proper pls go back to your Zoo land,IG can send all the leader of boko haram to south east as a commisioner,what is their qualification,can they speak the language to enable them to listen to those old people who cant speak good English,please go home,i warn people voting for Buhari,someone that was involve in Nigeria war many years ago what do you expect from him anOTHER WAR,bUHARI told ZUMA to send his boys to kill Nigerian in south Africa that they are criminals because he knows only 7 hausas are in south Africa,south Africa killing started since Buhari become a president but Buhari cannot rule me or be my president because am more intelligent than him,see how he inflect Aso Rock with Rats because he dosent know the meaning of hygiene,why did he take the key to Nigeria office to london,because he want Nigeria to go down with him.
