#EndSARS: 50 Persons Killed In Oyigbo, 80 Injured – Intersociety / 30 People Killed On A Crowded Bridge In Borno After An Explosion / South-East & South-South Excluded From Security Architecture - Intersociety (2) (3) (4)
|Obigbo Massacre: INTERSOCIETY Names Over 30 People Murdered By The Nigerian Army by gidgiddy: 5:30pm On Nov 22|
Intersociety, Onitsha, Eastern Nigeria, Thursday, 19th Nov 2020:
The Int’l Society for Civil Liberties & Rule of Law is deeply sad, worried and dismayed over the continuation of Army massacre operations in Obigbo and global silence trailing same. With our latest updates, the number of slain defenseless Igbo citizens of Obigbo residency and environs in Rivers State has now risen to at least 60 with between 90 and 100 others shot and deadly injured. Dozens have also been permanently disappeared and 200-300 others militarily abducted and held in custodies only known to the Nigerian Army. The Nigeria Police Force, Rivers State Command is also strongly believed to be holding not less than 100 persons. All the surviving victims being held alive by the Army and the Police are strongly believed to be undergoing torture and other harsh detention conditions. There are also no credible pieces of evidence showing that the sick and the injured detainees are receiving adequate medical treatments, raising serious fears of some dying in Army or Police custody or both.
We therefore strongly call for international intervention to stop the atrocious Army operations. The Nigerian Government and Nyesom Wike led Government of Rivers State must be prevailed upon to immediately withdraw the killer soldiers deployed to Obigbo and environs and all those currently held by the Army and the Nigeria Police Force in Rivers State and neighboring Abia State must be freed unconditionally or put on fair trial. The Obigbo massacre must not only be thoroughly investigated but also the perpetrators of the dastardly act including Major Gen Olu Irefin (GOC, 6 Division, Port Harcourt), Brig Gen SB Kumupayi (Commander, 14 Brigade, Ohafia) and Gov Nyesom Wike must be fished out at appropriate time and place and put on local and international trial for mass murder and crimes against property well as crimes against humanity.
We also wish to state boldly and factually that what is going on in Obigbo is far more devastating and three times murderous than the 20th night of Oct 2020 Lekki Tollgate Army shootings and killings targeted at gathered unarmed and defenseless protesters in Lagos State. In other words, the number of unarmed and defenseless citizens killed so far at Obigbo in Rivers State is at least three times higher than that of Lekki Tollgate in Lagos State.
While the Lekki Tollgate killings took the lives of about 20 persons, the number of persons so far killed in Obigbo has risen to at least 60, out of which 30 have been verified bodily or by names.
On the other hand, while the number of those shot and deadly injured in the Lekki Tollgate shootings is about 30, the number of those shot and deadly injured at Obigbo has risen to between 90 and 100, out of which 50 names have so far been identified. The ongoing Obigbo Army massacre has also resulted in permanent disappearances of dozens and 200-300 Army abductions. Unlike the Lekki Tollgate Army massacre where ‘ethnic cleansing’ was never intended even though a good number, if not majority of the dead activists were Igbo citizens; in Obigbo, the Army massacre there was and still is a full blown ‘ethnic cleansing’.
Apart from the fact that 98% of the dead and the shot and deadly injured victims in Obigbo are citizens of Igbo Nation, using “IPOB death code”, the Nigerian Army and other killer squads loyal to the Rivers State Government headed by Gov Nyeson Wike have also applied instant death and abduction code against every citizen with Igbo name or identity. In other words, any citizen with Igbo name or identity caught during their house breaking and house-to-house search and violence is instantly labeled “IPOB member” and either killed or abducted.
Therefore, going by our earlier promise of keeping the global community with verified updates over the ongoing Nigerian Army-Gov Nyesom Wike massacre operations in Obigbo, Rivers State; Intersocietyhas updated and verified 30 of the dead victims and 50 names of the shot and deadly injured in the massacre. We had in our first statement of 6th Nov 2020, released names of eight slain citizens and three unidentified others as well as 22 names of the shot and deadly injured others and made a promise to launch a detailed investigation into the massacre.
The Obigbo Army massacre, now bearing semblance of ‘ethnic cleansing’ and still ongoing, had occurred since 21st Oct 2020 following a curfew and thoughtless order issued same date by Gov Nyesom Wike, which the heavily Muslim controlled and secularity challenged Nigerian Army cashed in to levy human and property war targeting members of the Judeo-Christian Igbo population residing in the area; by killing them at will and looting and destroying their properties. Homes and areas occupied by Igbo natives have been targeted and are still being targeted by soldiers and-any person with Igbo identity is instantly made to run the high risk of losing his or her life or liberty and property.
The soldiers had In keeping with their new “IPOB death code”, abducted and presumably killed scores of unarmed and defenseless Igbo citizens living in the area-with multiple dozens, if not hundreds still held in the custodies of the 6 Division of the Nigerian Army located in Port Harcourt and Elele as well as its neighboring Asa-Ukwa military facilities in Abia State. They have been held in such facilities for past 28 days or since 21st Oct without being released or handed over to the Nigeria Police Force as required by law. Hundreds of homes have been broken into and still being broken into-with their Igbo occupants abducted at ungodly hours and their properties razed or destroyed or vandalized or burnt. It is credibly estimated that the Nigerian Army is presently holding not less than 200-300 of the arrested.
For instance, the areas affected by the Army massacre in Obigbo and environs are Obigbo Expressway (surrounded with armored tanks since 21st Oct till date), Old Aba Road (under siege since 21st Oct), Obigbo Roundabout (under siege since 21st Oct), Mbabo Camp (under siege since 21stOct), Ehi Road/Umunchi (under siege since 23rd Oct), Kom Kom Area (under siege since 24th Oct), Ohafia/Abiriba Quarters (under siege since 26th-27thOct and 11th-12th Nov and Obeama Area (under siege since 29th-31st Oct ), etc. Terrified witnesses including passersby are also alleging the dumping and drowning of scores of slain corpses inside ‘Imo Gate’ and ‘Mmiri Nwanyi’ Rivers. Some claimed to have sighted some floating corpses at ‘Mmiri Nwanyi River on 29th and 31stOct and ‘Imo Gate River Banks’ on 7th and 8thNov 2020. The witnesses were unable to photo or video the ‘floating corpses’ owing to heavy presence of soldiers guarding the areas for possible destruction of evidence or erasing traces.
Timber Road area has been under Army terror since 28th Oct. A Jewish Shabbat Mission in the area was attacked and dozens of its worshippers and officials abducted with scores killed. Umusonye/School Road and Vacation Areas have also been under Army siege, forcing several, if not many of their residents to flee. At Okpulo Area, residents including Shabbat religionists were attacked on 6thNov and on 8th Nov, the Shabbat Mission in the Area was demolished; likewise terrorization of residents of Ikwere-Ngwo Area and violent attacks on their houses including demolition of another Shabbat Mission in the Area. Houses and residents of Okoloma-Afam have been under heavy military terrorization since 12th and 14th Nov 2020.
Along Tap Junction, at least four defenseless citizens were shot dead and scores injured by soldiers in the evening of 11th Nov. This is according to eyewitnesses’ accounts. At Mbano Camp same evening of 11thNov 2020, three persons were shot dead and at Obigbo Express Junction, two more persons were shot dead and at Ohafia and Abiriba Junction same date and time, witnesses said “between 15 and 20 persons” were shot dead following indiscriminate shootings in different terminal directions by soldiers. While some of the corpses particularly those that felled off the road or street or inside gutters are abandoned to decompose, soldiers made away with others.
The heavy presence of soldiers also made it very difficult for relations of the slain to pick up their relatives’ bodies. Late Queen Nwazuo was among those shot and killed by military’s rain of bullets fired in different terminal directions. She was shot dead in front of her shop around noon of 23rd Oct 2020. She was killed at Umunchi Junction, Ehi Road in Obigbo. Among those abducted in their sleep by soldiers are Aneke Sunday and Onyema Christopher Onyeiro. While Citizen Aneke Sunday was abducted in his sleep around 2am in his residence around Market Road, Obigbo, Citizen Onyema Christopher Onyeiro and scores of his co residents were abducted around 11pm on 17th Nov 2020 at Isaiah Eletuo Street, Obigbo
In all these, the Government of Rivers State and authorities of the Nigerian Army (who have refused to speak and maintained silence of the graveyard on the massacre) are stopping at nothing to ensure that the truth concerning the massacre never sees the light of the day. Gov Wike apart from going about denying that “no killings took place at Obigbo”, has also been trying to divert the public attention by urging ‘all to condemn the killing of soldiers, police personnel and burning of police stations at Obigbo rather than wasting time seeking to investigate without evidence the Oyigbo incident”. Attempts by the NBA fact-finding committee to investigate the massacre have also been strongly resisted by the Gov and Government of Rivers State.

And Why Are End Sars hypocrites not Talking About This?
Because They Are Selfish, because Many Of Their Celebrities Stay In Lekki and They Are Ready To Worship Them...
Celebrities Don Carry Lekki matter For Head Because Its Close To Their Door Step.
Are They Blind To Kaduna killings are They Blind To Rivers State Killings?
But They Set Up A Panel For A Case that Is Exaggerated To Be A Massacre while They Ignore Real Massacre Happening In Nigeria.
Fake Love! Fake Patriots!

Watch how this thread will be dry because the usual names like Buhari, Tinubu, Sanwo-Olu and Lagos are not in it.
Gidgiddy I love your efforts to draw attention to what happened in Oyigbo. Some people are bent on sweeping it under the carpet despite overwhelming pictures and videos. Even people whose brothers and sisters were murdered in Oyigbo.
Everybody eye dey Lagos...

There will be great recompense for anyone who thinks he can spill Igbo blood and go scot free in this, Gowon his mentor may have gotten away with it because government and the British had monopoly over the media in those days. The case is no longer the same today.
Wike will pay, he chose the wrong time to be an Igbo killer.

You better call them InterBiafraSociety working for Ipob. Where were they when Ipob was disturbing the peace of the land and killing security personnel? Where were they when foolish Ipob members were obeying their foolish commander kanu to kill security men?
Is it today that Ipob started acting foolishly and embarking on sucide mission for kanu while Ipob leader is enjoying himself in obodooyibo? When they cause problem for themselves, they will be looking for who gets extra sympathy to give them.
Next time if you have Ipob sons, daughters, brothers and sisters engaging in sucide mission for kanu, warn them or call family members to help you warn them because if they die like fowl, 1000 Rips will not wake them

Are you sure IPOB killed any security personnel? At least INTERSOCIETY is giving names of those killed by Army, the place they were killed, details of the killing and where the bodies can be found.
Nobody knows who the security personnel IPOB are alleged to have killed are. Nobody knows their names, nobody knows how and where they were killed, nobody knows where their bodies are.
All we have are just mere allegation without one shred of evidence to back it up.
|Re: Obigbo Massacre: INTERSOCIETY Names Over 30 People Murdered By The Nigerian Army by Tranquill: 9:29pm On Nov 22|
At least one identifiable name Queen Nwazuo, a lady that was unfortunately killed in her boyfriend's shop on 22 October before the government intervention from a stray bullet which some people have said is from ipob hoodlums. Though some say it was the police but at the time, Wike has not imposed curfew and soldiers have not gone in to Oyigbo.
It shows that the entire list of names is fabricated to push the propaganda of ' Wike killing innocent Igbos'
|Re: Obigbo Massacre: INTERSOCIETY Names Over 30 People Murdered By The Nigerian Army by sreamsense: 9:58pm On Nov 22|
I beg my brother, stop deceiving yourself. If you like let Ipob and her investigative hungry intersociety list 5000 names; Ipob didn't just start listing today. Has any truth ever come up from ipob and her associates? Nnamdi kanu, who never gets catapult or give one to his foolish members will be asking them to go and bring Buhari head, bring Wike head, promising them of USA backing, Isreal backing and all manners of lies.
When result of their foolishness begins to bear fruits, they will be calling United nation, calling interhungrysociety and compiling useless names here and there to attract sympathy. I don't know the kind of inverted brains most Ipob members get, engaging in sucide mission because of lier kanu that he can't even send his biological juniour brother.
Is this the kind of foolishness and propaganda they want to use to rule Biafra? A member that is not even sure he/she will get 'school captainship' in Biafra school if Biafra is realized is wasting his/her life on nothing waiting for 'RIP' that will not bring him/her back to life. Radiance to rubbish!
|Re: Obigbo Massacre: INTERSOCIETY Names Over 30 People Murdered By The Nigerian Army by gidgiddy: 10:17pm On Nov 22|
Dont bring Nwazuo into this, her finance who was with her when she was shot has already told BBC in the link below that it was a Policeman who killed her
Nobody has been able to show or prove that IPOB killed anybody. Only mere accusations. Anybody can make accusations
