DSS accuses Biafrans of killing Fulani herdsmen

10 April 2016, 09:22

Abuja - The Department of State Services (DSS) has revealed the discovery of a mass grave in Abia State, which they claim was created by Biafra activists who killed Hausa-Fulani residents.

According to Naij, the DSS have taken over the Umuanyi forest near Aba, where 55 people are suspected to have been buried by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

In addition, DSS has claimed that IPOB members abducted and murdered 5 Hausa-Fulani herdsmen whose remains are reported to have been discovered in the same forest.
