Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has been accused by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, of directing police and army to kill IPOB members.
Naija News had earlier reported that Wike sign an executive order proscribing IPOB as a terrorist group.
The Governor was quoted as saying, “We have everything against the presence and activities of the legally proscribed and anarchic Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and whatever that group stands for in Rivers State.”
“This is clearly a terrorist group whose existence, creed, mission, and activities are strongly denounced even by the Government and peoples of the South-Eastern States of the country.”
Kanu while reacting to the development on Twitter on Friday said, “Nyesom Wike, the little Hitler of Rivers State had a closed door meeting with lawyers where he instructed them that any arrested IPOB member should not be brought to court but rather should be executed by the army & police.
