Why #Biafra Protester Ifeanyichukwu was KILLED and by whom #MadamKOOBiafra #HNNImpact

Several days after, the protests ignited by the agitation for the unconditional release of Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, continue to gather momentum, sweeping through the South East and parts of the South-South like a hurricane. The protesters are irked by the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu by the Department of Security Services, DSS, even after an Abuja Municipal Magistrate Court at Wuse Zone 2 had granted him bail.

Although it started as a peaceful demonstration, but within few hours after its commencement, one of the protesters was shot dead by a local vigilante operative attached to Ochanja market, Onitsha, Anambra State. On social media, many accused police and the military for killing this young man called Ifeanyichukwu. Now we hear he was harassing people to join the march.

A source said the deceased who was harassing some shop owners to close their shop or face the wrath of the IPOB ignored several verbal and gun shot warnings by the operatives before he was shot dead.

Yet, other sources said on sighting the protesters, the vigilante operative opened fire on them and shot the deceased dead on the spot, adding that even some policemen and soldiers on duty with the vigilante operative blamed him for the action.

Currently, the protest appeared to have recorded its biggest success in the commercial city of Onitsha and other parts of Anambra State as traders and other members of the public continue to demonstrate solidarity with the protesters.

During the demonstration, the IPOB members gathered at the Bridge-head end of Onitsha from where they spread to other parts of the commercial city and proceeded to Awka, the state capital through Nkpor, Ogidi, Umunnachi, Abagana, Enugwu-Ukwu, Amawbia and Awka and as they patrol on foot, the police and other security agencies monitored them curiously.
