The senator representing Bayelsa East, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce has condemned the killing of the unarmed Indigenous People of Biafra members who were rallying for the swearing-in of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United State of America.
Recall that not less than 11 members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, were today shot dead at Igweocha, Port Harcourt, Rivers State by men of the Nigerian Army, and Police.
Reacting over the killing, the Chairman of the Silver Bird Group took to his Facebook page to condemn the killing carried out by the military, which left about 11 persons dead, while scores were injured.
"I strongly condemn the killing of unarmed IPOB members rallying for Donald J. Trump earlier today. I believe in one Nigeria. I also believe in human life. But even more importantly, I believe in the Nigerian Constitution that gives every Nigerian citizen a guaranteed right of assembly. This loss of lives should not be allowed to happen without the due process of the law kicking in. It must be investigated and the culprits brought to book. Human life in Nigeria must have value if Nigeria is ever to be valued as a great nation by her citizens".
