There was chaos as members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) clashed with police officers during a protest on Friday at Nkwo market in Nnewi, Anambra State.
It was reported that at least, one police officer and some members of the pro Biafran group were killed in the clash.
But the Anambra Police command said only a policeman died in the protest while a Divisional Police Officer in the area was hospitalised following injuries sustained in the clash.
The IPOB protests were held in South-eastern states; Ebonyi, Enugu, Abia, Imo and Anambra, as the pro-Biafran agitators marched round sensitising the people about the need for a referendum to determine a sovereign state of Biafra and rejection of the 2019 general elections.
The protesters numbering over 2,000 stormed the market, with each member waving the Biafran flag, and chanting ‘no referendum, no election’.
Trouble, however, started when police operatives arrived the scene in three hilux vans and tried to stop IPOB acti
Members of the group were said to have first pounced on the police officers, destroying their vans and leaving two officers in the pool of their blood.
