Maintain peace for my sake – Obiano begs Biafran protesters


imageAfter a long silence, Governor Willie Obianno has reacted to the ongoing protest in Onitsha, Anambra State by pro-Biafran movement.
Apparently worried by the protest, which has paralyzed commercial activities in the state, Governor Obiano, Wednesday, appealed to the various groups of agitators protesting for the release of the founder of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, to maintain the peace in the state.
Obiano in a special address, said that he wouldn’t stand by and watch what had looked like a peaceful procession get out of hand.
“As your Governor and the Chief Security Officer of the state, I am compelled to act to avert any likely breakdown of law and order. In all situations, the preservation of human life comes first and I am determined to enforce that,” Governor Obiano declared.
He advised the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and other aggrieved groups and individuals to “resist any attempt by hoodlums to take advantage of the situation and destabilize any part of Anambra State.”
The governor further warned all mischief makers who might want to take advantage of the peaceful demonstration to foment trouble to “keep off as we will not tolerate any breach of peace under any guise or pretence.”
“I, therefore, wish to assure Ndi Anambra and all visitors to the state to go about their normal business peacefully as the security agencies are on top of the situation to preserve law and order,” he said. posted by
