Wilie Obiano,  the Anambra state governor has denied the killing of IPOB members in Anambra and refused to take the responsibility for the killings of the members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) that happened on 30 May 2016.

The IPOB killings happened last year when the members of Indigenous  people of Biafra camped inside a Catholic church at Nkpor to pray and sleep over for the 30th May,  Biafrans celebration day. At the middle of that night,  military men stormed the church and shot them dead.

According to the reporter, Ikenna Chukwuma, Willie Obiano, governor of Anambra State made this statement in an event,

Read on what Obiano said:


“I was not in town when the incident occurred, I even gave the military a standing order not to shoot, I knew they were going to hold their 30th May event in Anambra state, which is their land and they have the right to do that. I took off to London for them to have the land as the wish.

“I was shocked when I was called in London that IPOB members were killed in my state, Anambra, I quickly called the military incharge of Anambra which is the state I govern.”

He denied the act but went further to affirm that the military officers that was on duty in Anambra that day was not those in Anambra State, claiming they all came from an unknown town.

“I quickly called the president, Muhammadu Buhari, he still denied sending troops to gun down IPOB members.”

“The fact remains that the real killers of IPOB members in Anambra State remains unknown to me. I have been trying to get the fact of what happened in Anambra state silently, so that I can tell the world categorically clear that I don’t have hands in the killing of my people. Aso villa should be questioned.”
