Obiano Reacts To Pro-Biafra Protest In Onitsha - Vanguard by Noneroone(m): 9:39pm On Dec 02, 2015
Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has finally reacted to the outcome of Wednesday’s protest by pro-Biafra groups, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in Onitsha, the commercial city of the state, which reportedly led to the death of 9 civilians, two police sergeants and eight others injured.

The clash between protesters and security operatives on the Onitsha Head Bridge, also reportedly led to the burning down of the Onitsha Central Mosque and at least six Dangote trucks.
Bothered by this, Governor Obiano today, appealed to the various groups of agitators protesting for the release of the founder of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, to maintain the peace in the state.

Obiano in a special address, said that he wouldn’t stand by and watch what had looked like a peaceful procession get out of hand.

“As your Governor and the Chief Security Officer of the state, I am compelled to act to avert any likely breakdown of law and order. In all situations, the preservation of human life comes first and I am determined to enforce that,” Governor Obiano declared.
He advised the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and other aggrieved groups and individuals to “resist any attempt by hoodlums to take advantage of the situation and destabilize any part of Anambra State.”
The governor further warned all mischief makers who might want to take advantage of the peaceful demonstration to foment trouble to “keep off as we will not tolerate any breach of peace under any guise or pretence.”
He assured residents and visitors to the state that he was in touch with all the security agencies in the state and had their assurances that mischief makers would not be allowed to take advantage of the situation.
“I therefore wish to assure Ndi Anambra and all visitors to the state to go about their normal business peacefully as the security agencies are on top of the situation to preserve law and order,” he said.

Govenor Willie Obiano is trying to shield the rogues that wrecked mayhem and distrupted the peace today in Anambra state. We read about how they waylaid motorists/travellers by blocking the Onitsha head bridge.

Today, the biafra protesters looted shops, lit burn fires, pelted security forces with stones, burnt Six Dangote's truck, harmed several Youth Corpers and also burnt the Hausa Central Mosque at Onitsha

my dear the only person fooling himself here is you

massob has been around for about 15yrs without torching mosque even when they were killed extra-judicially.

Ipob protested twice before now yet there were no violence. Why now? The burning of the mosque and dangote trucks were an attempt by planted moles to "give the dog a bad name in order to hang it" and also incite northerners (not that we fear them anyway)

Anambra should apologize to the Northerners for destroying their mosque

How long can this continue?

The SE Governors have to go to the North to appease them in order to avoid a reprisal

IPOB should think before they act!!

Those things were not done by peaceful IPOB protesters. No matter the scheming of the vipers, Biafrans will not be cowed. Let Buhari and his forces keep shedding innocent blood; they will account for it soon.

Rochas should better comment oh, shebi he was the one that told the president that he has it all under control.

He should be held responsible.


Obiano is lucky, he didn't speak against IPOB, he only spoke against the miscreants that may try to hijack the peaceful protest.

Buhari has succeeded in "planting" some spies among the protesters. Very soon those spies would burn federal govt offices and Buhari would blame IPOB. Its a tactic used by despots and dictators around the world.

Let it be put on record that Buhari and his APC first created this unrest in the SE by relocating boko haram prisoners to the SE.. Buhari has never apologized for this wicked action, today he is sending soldiers to kill our people

He knows State if Emergency might be declared shortly. No government conscious of its responsibility to its citizenry will sit idly by and watch a transport route that strategic taken over unlawfully without taking overt and covert measures as may be necessary to remedy the situation. Truth is, one who dares a soldier whose constitutional duty is to maintain the territorial integrity of his country puts him/herself in harm's way. Unfortunate that folks died though. Ibos are best advised to note that the now unfolding arms saga that made the Nigerian Army so vulnerable no thanks to the impunity prone, inept, corrupt, clueless and directionless personality of Goodluck Jonathan no longer obtains. If IPOB equates their population dense terrain with the Sambisa forest it has something dastardly coming. Testing the will of the NA to crush acts that amount to levying war on Nigeria will, in these times of focussed governance be a costly misadventure. A word, they say, is enough for the wise.
