By IGNATIUS OKPARA, Onitsha

Heavily armed security operatives, including Soldiers, on friday in Onitsha, Anambra State, clashed with protesting supporters of the Director of Radio Biafra and leader of the indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

The protesters, had paralysed both socio and economic activities in the commercial city, a development that brought vehicular and pedestrian movements to a halt for several hours, despite the intervention of the security men.

They had called for the immediate and unconditional release of their leader, Kanu, who is still reportedly being held by the Department of State Services, DSS.

The  protest, made life unbearable for motorists and commuters, leaving and entering  south-east, Nigeria through the River Niger Bridge, in Onitsha, as they were trapped for many hours.

AFRICAN EXAMINER reports that the IPOB members, had during the violence protest, barricaded the entry and exit routes of the Onitsha Head Bridge.

The exercise, which  spread to other busy  areas as Ochanja, later claimed the life of one of the protesters, who allegedly felled by an accidental discharge from the gun shots of soldiers, who had hectic time in dispersing them.
