A coalition of Niger Delta militant groups has urged the Federal Government to address the massacre of supporters of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) during their peaceful demonstration across the country.
The groups supported the Leader of the IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, that the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra State, in November should not hold without justice for the slain IPOB members.
The militant groups which took the decision are Concerned Militant Leaders (CML), Niger Delta People Democratic Front (NDPDF) and Rainbow Marabas Squad (RMS) .
They argued that since May 30, 2016 when soldiers allegedly massacred harmless and innocent IPOB members in some parts of the Southern states, the Federal Government had remained silent r on the incident.
The leaders of the groups, General Ben (CML), General Playboy (NDPDF) and Gen-eral Aneaja (RMS), in a statement issued after their meeting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, demanded for justice for the victims of the May 30, 2016 Biafra Day celebration killings.
The convener of the meeting, General Ben said: “The Federal Government should ad-dress the injustice meted out to innocent and harmless IPOB members while celebrating Biafra Day. The election in Anambra State should not hold and will not hold. That injustice must first be addressed before any election will take place.
