Biafra Agitators For Trial In Rivers

Biafra Agitators For Trial In Rivers

All those arrested in Rivers State last week in connection with the carnage in Oyigbo, following the sit-at-home-order by Biafra agitators are soon to be tried.

About 25 suspects are already in police net in connection with the carnage. 19 of them were said to have been arrested on the same day of the protest, while a few others were picked up following confessions by the first batch of suspects.

Police image maker, Nnamdi Omoni told TNN over the telephone that there was no way the police would allow the suspects to go free, after the level of destructions experienced in the state.

Omoni however said while investigations were on-going, all those found not have been culpable would be released before the arraignment of the others. He said deliberate efforts were also made to apprehend sponsors of the protests.

Last week, parts of Rivers State was under siege, following protests by the Biafra agitators who believed that everybody in the state, especially in Oyigbo, ought to have obeyed the order to sit at home, as part of their moves to secure a Biafra Republic.

There were reports that a lot of trucks and other vehicles were burnt. The Hausa community even alleged that their people were missing as a result of the attacks.

But the police said during the interview that the picture on this would become clearer in the course of investigations.
