Following a protest by some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra in Port Harcourt, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has warned that his administration will not tolerate a repeat of the protest embarked upon by the members of any self-determination group within the state.
Members and supporters of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra and those of IPOB took to the streets of Port Harcourt, demanding the breakaway of the Igbo tribe from Nigeria and the unconditional release of one of their members currently in custody of the Department of State Service, Nnamdi Kalu.
Wike, who spoke through a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Opunabo Inko-Tariah, expressed annoyance over the protest, and stressed the indivisibility of Nigeria, adding that the actions of the protesters were capable of stimulating chaos in the state.
He dissociated himself and the state from the protest, adding that legal machinery has been set in motion against any group that tries to breach the peace in the state.
