Rivers State Givernor, Wike Nyesom has directed security agencies in the State to arrest Biafra protesters who had threatened to resume protest by Monday, January 18th, 2016 if their leader, Nnamdi Kanu was not released.
In a statement signed by Dr. Austin Tam-George, the Commissioner for Information in the State, it had come to the attention of the Rivers State Government that some Biafran agitators had resorted to illegal processions, and had assaulted law abiding citizens and residents of the state. Governor Nyesom Wike strongly condemns the acts of criminality perpetrated by Biafran agitators by whatever name, in the Oyigbo area of the state, he said.
He added “The government has directed all security agencies in the state to arrest and prosecute all Biafran agitators who flout the ban on illegal separatist processions and demonstrations in Rivers State.”
He also urged all residents to be calm and law abiding.
