Fours members of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, were allegedly shot dead on Thursday, as policemen dispersed the movement’s protest in Onitsha.

The News Agency of Nigeria learnt that at least 400 protesting members of the movement were dispersed following shootings near Ochanja Market Roundabout around 11:30am.

Ten other members of the group were said to have sustained various degrees of injuries during the incident.

The Director of Information of the movement, Mr Godwin Aguchima, said that they were staging a peaceful protest to condemn the continued detention of their leaders in Kuje Prisons, Abuja, since 2006.

“Our greatest bitterness is the dumping of an 82-year-old man, Mr Anayo Nwani, who is seriously sick in prison,” Aguchima said.
