Some IPOBs allegedly killed as they celebrate Trump’s inauguration.

The Indigenous people of Biafra whose members want Trump to support the creation of an independent Biafran state for the Igbo people on Friday organized a demonstration in southern Rivers state.

According to the IPOB, their members were
shot at by the police although the police denied there were any deaths.

A member of the group, Ugochukwu Chinweuba, said police and soldiers used live rounds and that “scores” were wounded in addition to the dead whereas Nnamdi Omoni, a spokesman for Rivers state police, said the claim was false and that police only used tear gas.

“To the best of my knowledge, there was no casualty as the police merely employed minimal action, which involved the use of tear gas to disperse protesters,” he said.

Neither of the competing accounts could be independently verified.
