Nigeria army killed Biafra protesters (Ipob)

By on June 11, 2016

Nigeria’s military has killed at least 17 supporters of Biafran independence,according to Amnesty International.

The Nigerian military described the claims as unfounded and misleading.

According to Amnesty, some of those who died were members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (Ipob), a group campaigning for Biafran independence.

At least one million people died in the 1967-70 civil war started by Biafran secessionists.

Ipob says Nigeria’s government is dominated by northerners and has not done enough to develop the mostly Igbo-speaking south-eastern parts of Nigeria.
