Activist Annkio Briggs Speaks On The Killing Of IPOB Members

Listen to article

Foremost Niger Delta activist, Annkio Briggs, has condemned the killing of IPOB members in Enugu by the security forces. Briggs wondered how a peaceful meeting being held in school was reduced to a shooting spree by the security agencies when everyone knows that IPOB do not bear arms.

Briggs admonished Nigerians who keep quiet in the face of oppression and killings because it is happening elsewhere and doesn’t concern them.

She said that anybody has the right to agitate not to be part of Nigeria and nobody should be killed for exercising that right.
