247ureports.com reliably gathered that the Inspector General of Police Solomon Arase had earlier advised one of the governors – [Abia State Governor] to declare the curfew before the escalation of the protest. The advise had come following Governor Ikpeazu telephone call to the Police Inspector General seeking for assistance over the growing Biafra protest. Governor Ikpeazu had called requesting for help from the IGP. The IGP directed him to declare a curfew.

Today, the IGP repeated the advise to declare a curfew.

    This protest shows the world how uncivilized, brutal , irresponsible and arrogant nigeria and their Islamic government are. So for nigerians to solve every problem it’s a must to resort in arm conflit. Curfew or state of emergency can never stop BIAFRANS until nigeria decide to address the issue that brought about the protest. This is what Nnamdi Kanu preach every day and obviously the World can judge for themselves. Meanwhile it is going to two months up until now it remained a thing of “be peaceful, be calm, don’t involve violence” for how long will one cage a raging lion and expect her to keep roaring only without pushing the cage even for once. The army is busy shooting at unarmed protester, and nigerians are clapping for their soldiers and police. Nigeria army is yet to exercise it’s full force on boko haram, maybe they preserve to use it on unarmed BIAFRANS. For everything there is a season. A fowl is an easy going weak bird but not when one threatens her chickens. Nigerians should avoid a repeat of the past which its wind will blow no one any good. The Biafrans have been peaceful enough and will not continue to tolerate this direct slap in their faces. The world is getting smaller every day in this computer age. It’s a stone throw to reaching a target even in the far west. It is an unhealthy practice to perceive a deadly unrest and keep quiet until it unfolds. Peace is not for the weak and the inexperienced but for the mighty that knows what war is. nigerian politicians and government should organise a referendum now instead of united one nigeria nonsense. A perfect unity can be formed when one wants to unite with you, what of in the case where someone don’t want to unite with you, is it by force? Organise a referendum an save us that nonsense of one indivisible nigeria. If nigerians think that we will retreat or surrender is a merely dream. Boko haram from the north and Biafra from the south, nigeria must definitely sink into abyss of distruction. as nigerians are glamouring today and insulting our dead ones will not last long. By the time this rain will start falling, it will beat both the sheep and shephard. This is 2015 not 1967-70
