Federal government may declare state of emergency in Abia state - Official

Reports suggests that there is apprehension within government circles in Abia state that the ongoing clash between IPOB youths and the Nigerian military might prompt the federal government declare a state of emergency in the state.

We gathered that this may have informed the dusk to dawn curfew announced by the state governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu on Tuesday, September 12.

Reliable sources say there has been influx of youths, suspected to be members of IPOB in the state, who are said to be heading to the home town of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, to form a human shield around him.

Part of the state government's announcement stated that: “The government recognizes the constitutional Right to Freedom of Movement for all Nigerians, but objects to the influx of people into Abia state for purposes of unsettling the enduring peace in the state.”

Photos and videos posted on the internet by pro-Biafran websites showed thousands of IPOB youths inside and trucks and buses waving Biafran flags and heading to Kanu's home town.

Those presently in the IPOB leader's home have since barricaded the entrance of the street leading to the mansion, which is also Kanu's father's palace.

An Abia state government official, Sam Hart gives first hand information on the situation of things in the state via his Twitter handle His tweets suggests that the military might be trying to provoke the IPOB youths in order to cause mayhem.
Hart raises alarm about the frightening commitment of the pro-Biafran youths to resist military authorities.
