Biafra: Cross River issues stern warning against protests
Following protests seeking for secession to form
the Republic of Biafra in some South East and
South South states, the Cross River State
government has issued a stern warning against
such in its domain.
The government said its attention has been drawn
to planned protest march by some elements
outside the state and urged the people of the state,
especially the youths not to allow themselves to be
used to achieve any self-serving interest.
The State Security Adviser, Mr Jude Ngaji, said in a
statement in Calabar Tuesday said that security
agencies are on red alert to ensure that no
unauthorized march, procession or protest takes
place in the state.
â€œThe state government attaches great importance
to the unity of the country and warned that any
person or group of persons who embark on any
protest without a written permission from the
police shall be made to face the full force of the
law,â€ the statement read.
