Some irate youths who killed two Hausa settlers in Oyigbo city, Oyigbo Native Authorities Space, weren’t members of Indigenous Individuals of Biafra (IPOB), Rivers state police has stated, in response to a fake report by some Media.
The police made the assertion after a spokesman for Northern Neighborhood in Rivers, Alhaji Musa Saidu, had alleged that two merchants have been killed and two others wounded when irate youths suspected to be members of (IPOB) attacked Hausa settlement within the space.
But it’s crystal clear that IPOB are not in anyway involved in any violent act.
Police Public Relations Officer, Rivers Command, SP Nnamdi Omoni, who confirmed the event, nevertheless, discountenanced the pointer to IPOB as being chargeable for the assaults.

THE FALLACIOUS LIES AND PROPAGANDA PEDDLED BY DAILY TRUST NEWS AGAINST IPOB, ON THE PURPORTED KILLING OF TWO HAUSA MEN IN OBIGBO, IGWUOCHA (Rivers State).
There has been a fallacious news being carried by Daily Trust News media, that IPOB killed two Hausa residents in Obigbo, Igwuocha, Rivers State on this day, the 7th of September 2020.
Rivers Media Team wants to use this medium to call on the good people of the world and the public to disregard such information, because it is a false propaganda, and an excuse to start abducting innocent Biafran citizens.
According to our correspondence and Intelligence unit, nobody knows exactly who was responsible for the killings because it happened at the mid of the night.
However, another trending news which Daily Trust Media Outfit rushed to publish, which are lies against IPOB, is the purported killing of two Hausa residents in Mbano Obigbo far away from where the initial butchery took place.
It was reported first Hausa man was killed by some unknown men who came to kidnap a Reverend Father at Saint Paul Catholic church Obigbo. The Hausa man was a security guard, as well as a cobbler.
He was killed and dumped inside his shop. His remains was later found on Friday, the 4th of September 2020.
On 6th September 2020, another Hausa man was killed by unknown hoodlums who came to rob a young man with Lexus 350 in front of Eco Bank.
In the process of exchanging bullets, a Police officer was spotted and killed according to eyewitness and an Hausa man was also found dead Sunday 6th September 2020.
This was mainly because they live in their numbers close to the venue where the shootout took place.
So, for Daily Trust to start pointing fingers at IPOB for being responsible for the killings of two Hausa men was not only fallacious and mendacious, but equally maliciously criminal, as they want to use the medium to give the police room to start arresting IPOB Activists unjustly.
Rivers Media Team is still investigating the trending report because no one could tell exactly who the hoodlums were, nor their names.
Nobody knows if they were business associates, kidnappers, ritualists, or mere assassins that were responsible.
Everything happened in the night.
If anyone claims he/she knows exactly who these hoodlums were/are, the person should come along give their names, as well as where they came from.
IPOB Activists have always remained peaceful in their approach even in face of provocation from the Nigerian military.
Biafrans, and the world, must disregard such deceitful propaganda peddled by Daily Trust News media on 7th September 2020.
Meanwhile, the @PoliceNG (Nigga-area Police), has made a press release, exonerating IPOB from any complicity in the death of the two Northerners, contrary to the falsehood being peddled by the mendacious Dairy Trust.
Please stay tuned for more information.
