Biafra: Bloody Clash Averted As Ijaw Youths Disrupt Asari Dokubo’s BNC Inauguration In Bayelsa

Asari Dokubo and Nnamdi Kanu

A bloody clash was averted on Saturday by the police in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, following failed attempts by a former militant leader and Niger Delta activist, Asari Dokubo, to hold an expanded inaugural meeting in support of Biafra.

According to Nation newspaper, the Chairman of Ijaw Youths Council (IYC), Central Zone, Kennedy Olorogun, got wind of the Biafran meeting and mobilized his executive council members and other youths to the venue of the gathering.

Olorogun was said to be angry that Dokubo chose Bayelsa, a homogeneous Ijaw state, to hold such meeting and ordered the founder of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force (NDPVF) to leave the state or face the wrath of the youths.

He alleged that Dokubo gathered over 300 persons from across the states in the South-East and South-South to hold the meeting.

According to him, the meeting was reportedly convened under the auspices of the Biafra National Council (BNC) and not the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Olorogun said over 300 persons including Dokubo were already gathered at a hotel in Yenagoa when he led Ijaw youths to the place.

He said quarrel ensued between him and Dokubo when he told the former militant leader that the meeting would not hold in Ijawland.

“When we got the information, we stormed the venue of the meeting to stop them.

“They tried to resist us but we told them we were prepared for them because we will not allow any part of Bayelsa to be used for a meeting calling for the actualisation of Biafra.

“I wonder why Dokubo decided to bring such meeting to Bayelsa. But we stopped them.

“It was getting out of hand but the police intervened to stop possible violence. My happiness is that we stopped the meeting from holding,” he told journalists.

Biafra - IPOB

More than 20 operatives from Imo State Police Command on Friday clashed with members of Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) and Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) at Orji in Owerri North Council Area of the state.

The incident, which took place in the morning hours at Orji between the Orji fly over and Ama wire, according to eyewitness, led to exchange of gunfire that led to some members of the two organisations sustaining serious injuries.

It was gathered the IPOB members were waiting at Orji/Okigwe road Owerri Imo State to receive the corpse of a member Onyekachukwu Uzoma from Mbaise, who died at Enugu, when they clashed with the operatives.

The witness said that passersby scampered for safety when gunshots were fired.

The situation forced security operatives to block the road, preventing human and vehicular moments in the area, The Nation reports.

Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful, confirmed the incident to the Nation.

He alleged the police shot at the members “when Imo IPOB family were waiting at Orji to receive the dead body of our member been conveyed from Enugu to Mbaise when they were shot by the police operatives with many of them sustaining injuries.

“The Nigeria and army and SARS started shooting suproadically at our IPOB members. Nigeria Army and Police have started once again pushing us to the wall.

“IPOB is not happy how Nigeria government are killing Biafrans and other Christians in Nigeria.

“We are warning Nigeria government and her security operatives to stop attacking IPOB because they will regret their actions soon.”

When contacted, the State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Orlando Ikeokwu, denied gun shots were fired.

He claimed the police were only trying to restore normalcy in the area.

According to him: “MASSOB members mounted road block and then Police was trying to restore normalcy.”

“They also attacked a team of policemen attached to Orji Division along Owerri/Okigwe Road by the Orji Flyover.

“The hoodlums while trying to dispossess the policemen of their service rifles also inflicted machete wounds on the policemen.

”However, the attack was successfully repelled with arrests made, while some others ran away with various degree of injuries.”
