Abuja - The Biafra Nations Youth League has alerted the international community to the alleged killing of women by police during a recent protest in the Anambra State.

It condemned in “strong terms” the alleged killing of the women that were demanding the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Radio Biafra (RB).

It could not be ascertained how many were killed.

"We condemn the killing of Biafran women protesters in Anambra State by Nigeria Security operatives as instructed by (President) Muhammadu Buhari.

We call on the international community to rise against this wicked act by Nigeria Government before it results to another war. It seems Nigeria don't understand the word peace,” said the league’s Public Relations Officer, Aghaulor Godspower.
