Army begins investigation into killing of Pro-Biafra agitators

18 March 2016, 10:35

Enugu - The Nigerian Army has commenced investigations into the alleged extra judicial killings of some pro-Biafra protesters in some parts of the South-east.

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, who made the disclosure on Thursday while addressing newsmen during his maiden visit to the headquarters of 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Enugu, stated that anybody found culpable would be decisively dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the law.

About 10 members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) were reportedly killed when troops opened fire on them during the agitation for the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu in February.

There were also reports that about 30 other members of the group sustained serious injuries during the incident.

Buratai, however, said he believed soldiers could not have opened fire on the activists without provocation.
