Amnesty International Writes Governor Obiano Over Biafra Then This Happen

Rights group Amnesty International is calling on the governor of Anambra state, south-eastern Nigeria, to investigate alleged killings of pro-Biafra secessionists. The pro-Biafra movement calls for the independence of territories forcibly annexed to modern-day Nigeria during British colonisation, ended in 1960.

Last year, Amnesty released a report documenting alleged abuses against supporters of the Indigenous People of Biafra (Ipob) movement.

The group claimed security forces killed at least 150 people “and injured hundreds more during peaceful assemblies” since August 2015.
