Nnamdi Kanu, the brain behind the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has sent threats to the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, over the massacre of Igbo youths at Obigbo, in Oyigbo Local Government Area of the state during the #ENDSARS protests that happened in October, 2020.
According to reports, the governor of the state sent security agencies to restore order at venue where the protest was allegedly hijacked by hoodlums who invaded the settlement of Igbo traders and caused chaos in the area. It was gathered that a lot of Igbo youth at the arrival of the security team with Kanu insisted that was a systemic massacre of IPOB members.
