Two policemen and four others believed to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra on Friday died during IPOB ’ s protest in Nnewi , Anambra State .
But the Anambra Police command said only a policeman died in the protest while a Divisional Police Officer in the area was hospitalised following injuries sustained in the clash.
Speaking with our correspondent on the telephone , a Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of operations, Mike Okoli said , ” I will confirm to you that we lost a policeman in the clash; an inspector . The DPO who went with him to that operation is hospitalised . I can ’ t tell you of any other casualties; this is the much I know. ”
It was gathered that the pro – Biafran agitators marched round Nnewi and environs on Friday sensitising the people about the need for a referendum to determine a sovereign state of Biafra and rejection of the 2019 general elections .
