Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has commended Premium Times for it’s investigation into “horrific bloodshed and massive extrajudicial killings in Oyigbo, Rivers State.”
In a statement, Nnamdi Kanu thanked Premium Times “for your world-class Report on the massacre at Obigbo.”
According to him;
“You’ve distinguished yourself as the credible destination when it comes to investigative journalism in Nigeria. Keep it up & remain objective because TRUTH is irreducible.”
For over a Month, there have been outcry over what many termed massacre in Oyigbo but was ignored or termed Fake News by the government.
In an interview recently, the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike noted that, the people of the area was only paying for harbouring IPOB members, a claim, Premium Times in her investigation found out to be false.
The invasion of the community, according to sources, was due to an alleged killing of some soldiers and policeman by IPOB members in the area.
