RALLY SAGA :Take action against Nigeria, IPOB urges US, Israel and Russia

The Indigenous Peoples of Bi­afra (IPOB) has urged the United States of America, Israel and Russia to demand ex­planations from Nige­ria, the alleged burning of their flags by security forces during the Don­ald Trump’s solidarity rally held last Friday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
IPOB had earlier claimed that 11 of its members were killed, scored wounded and over 100 arrested by security operatives dur­ing the peaceful protest which it organised in solidarity with the new US President, Trump.
A press statement is­sued yesterday by its Spokespersons, Emma Nmezu, and Clifford Iroanya, accused the security operatives of burning American, Is­raeli, and Russian flags they allegedly seized from its members dur­ing the rally.
“We call upon the En­voys of America, Russia, and Israel to demand explanations from Fran­cis Odesanya why he resorted to burning the flags of their respective countries.”
IPOB also refuted claims by the Rivers Po­lice Commissioner, Mr Francis Odesanya, that it did not obtain police permission for the rally, insisting that the police were duly notified and actually acknowledged the receipt of the notifi­cation letter.
The pro-Biafra group also accused the po­lice boss of ordering his men to open fire on the unarmed protesters, and carting away the bodies of some victims.
