Nnamdi Kanu threatens to hunt down Wike over alleged massacre of Igbo youths in Rivers
The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has threatened to deal with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, over the alleged massacre of Igbo youths at Obigbo, Oyigbo local government area of the state during last year’s #ENDSARS protests.
The protest was reportedly hijacked by hoodlums who stormed the settlement dominated by Igbo traders and a clash ensued between the two groups.
The governor later sent in security forces to quell the riot and many Igbo youths were allegedly killed in what Kanu has insisted was a systemic massacre of IPOB members.
Apart from the alleged massacre, over 60 women were arrested by the Department of State Service (DSS) and detained for more than five months.
After their release, the women claimed they were raped and sexually abused by soldiers and other security officers while in detention.
A civil rights group, the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law, on Tuesday, ran an exclusive story on the matter titled: “How Nigerian Soldiers Routinely Raped, Tortured Us In Abuja Barracks — Women Arrested In Obigbo, Rivers,” detailing the experience of two of the freed women in the hands of DSS officials.
