Army declares pro-Biafra publishers wanted

17 August 2016, 14:39

Aba - Soldiers have launched a manhunt for publishers of pro Biafra newspapers in Aba, Abia state, Vanguard reports.

A group of soldiers reportedly accosted a vendor and some of his colleagues demanding them to disclose the identity of the publishers of the Biafra newspapers circulating in the city.

It was gathered that one of the vendors identified as Emeka is suspected to have been arrested by soldiers.

Recall that soldiers attached to the 144 Battalion Asa, Ukwa West Council area, had on March 14, 2016, confiscated unsold and new editions of pro-Biafra newspapers; New Republic, Vesym, Freedom Journal, including copies of Authority newspapers in Aba.

Some of the vendors have devised strategies to conceal and sell the pro Biafra newspapers and magazines which are in hot demand in the city.

A publisher, who declined to be named for fear of reprisal, condemned the action of the military, and denied that pro Biafra newspapers incite hatred among the people, stressing that they only publish Biafra stories as some national dailies do.

The Nigerian Army on Sunday also declared three persons, including a woman, wanted allegedly in connection with the over 200 Chibok girls abducted by Boko Haram since 2014 according to News24.

They are Ahmad Salkida, (Ambassador) Ahmed U. Bolori and Aisha Wakil.

According to a statement issued by the Acting Director Army Public Relations,Col. Sani Usman, the wanted persons have information on the conditions and the exact location of those girls.
