OnyxNews Nigeria reports that the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has asked United Nations why its condemned Borno killings and keep mute about Oyigbo massacre that happened late October through early this month in Rivers state.
Kanu asked the question on Monday evening through micro-blogging site.
He tweeted: “Can somebody tell me why the United Nations condemned the massacre of Kanuri fishermen in Borno State by suspected Boko Haram terrorists but not those slaughtered in #Obigbo by @GovWike & @HQNigerianArmy?.”
“Is it because those killed in #Obigbo are #BiafranJews and NOT Muslims,” the IPOB leader added.
