An IPOB member was shot dead by a soldier during the protest in Igwe Ocha, Port Harcourt, on Tuesday, November 10. He was not the first victim of the ongoing confrontation between the Nigerian law enforcement agencies and the army on the one side, and members and supporters of the pro-Biafran IPOB movement on the other. Edujandon.com looks at how civil unrests are dealt with in the Nigeria of the 21st century.
The pro-Biafran secessionist protests have gathered pace in Southern Nigeria, fuelled by the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, the Radio Biafra director. Sympathisers abroad are holding demonstrations as well. The Nigerian segment of the social media is overflowing with graphic content from the alleged sites of clashes.
According to eye witness Mr Esomnofu
“The man was shot at the back while running from the army personnel,”
“The protesters have gone wild following the killing of one of them.
“The question is why did a trained soldier of the Nigerian Army shoot at the unarmed protesters?”
Reports of killings and battering occurring on the streets of most southern Nigerian states are received daily.
Yesterday, Monday, November 16, Muhammadu Buhari, the president of Nigeria, made an official statement condemning the protests in the country. A lot of prominent Nigerians, including Father Ejike Mbaka, Rotimi Makinde, Godswill Akpabio, etc., support the president in his aspiration to resolve the conflict. At the same time, some high-ranked officials, such as Monsur Dan-Ali, the minister of defence, leave open the possibility of the conflict escalation.
