Biafra anniversary impasse: Obiano pledges to offset hospital bills of victims

ANAMBRA State Gover­nor, Willie Obiano has pledged to offset hospital bills of some Biafra agi­tators who were injured during the celebration of the 49th anniversary of the declaration of Biafra.

The governor also called for calm over the crisis rocking Nkpor com­munity.

Obiano made the pledge at Nkpor town hall when he came to sym­pathise with the people of Nkpor on the bloody clash between security operatives and Biafra agi­tators in which about 50 members were reportedly massacred and scores in­jured.

“We have compiled the list of the injured in different hospitals where they are hospitalised.”

The governor urged Nkpor people to always ward off undesirable el­ements who come into the community to tarnish their image.

“I came to sympathise with you for what hap­pened. Before I came in as the governor, people were not sleeping, but now we sleep. Don’t al­low strangers to disturb Nkpor.”

Obiano recalled how he deployed diplomacy to evacuate Boko Haram suspects brought into Ekwulobia Prisons and also gave befitting burial to Biafra war heroes.
