Unconfirmed reports have it that three people have been are dead while about 30 others were injured on Sunday, August 30, 2015 as Nigerian military men clamped down on pro-Biafra members in Onitsha, Anambra State.

Although not yet independently confirmed, the Facebook page of pirate radio station, Radio Biafra reports that the deceased were part of a larger group which had just concluded a meeting before deciding on having a peaceful “rally/evangelism.”

The reports have it that about 30 people were hit with stray bullets while 3 have been confirmed dead.

According to a Facebook user, Chinenye Lauretta Ufearoh-Onoh, the people met under the umbrella of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). See her report below:

Yesterday, the 30th of August 2015, the Nigerian police and navy shot 30+ Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) members at Onitsha Anambra State. 

IPOB had their usual meeting yesterday, at the end of their successful peaceful meeting, they decided to engage in a peaceful evangelism as always.

Few minutes into that, the Nigerian police in collaboration with NAVY struck and started shooting sporadically.

Over 30 people got shot and as of this morning 7 people were confirmed dead, while 20 brothers are in a critical condition fighting for their lives…

How come our security men find it so easy to kill peaceful IPOB members but won’t lift a finger against the deadly Boko Haram? These brothers were peaceful in their engagement, they weren’t radical or causing any harm according to eye witnesses, they weren’t armed, so why shoot at them?
