South-East Traders protest: Soldiers now man Ekwulobia Prisons, MASSOB may join campaign

Solders have taken over the security in the Ekwulobia Prisons, following the protest by the South-East Traders over the relocation of Boko Haram convicts, even as its anticipated that Movement for the Actualization of Republic of Biafra (MASSOB) may join the campaign, reports ITRealms.

This development is coming a few days after the Anambra State Amalgamated Traders Association (AMATAS) shut down all markets in the State to protest the relocation of Boko Haram convicts to Ekwulobia Prisons, traders from the entire South-East region showed solidarity to the cause by staging a 7-hour protest in Ekwulobia, to demand that the prisoners be moved back to the North.

ITRealms recalls that these spade of protests is on the heels of the relocation of 47 members of the dreaded Islamic sect who were moved to Ekwulobia prisons in Aguata Local Government Area last weekend, which led to Governor Obiano’s emergency visit to President Muhammadu  Buhari on the issue.

Also, ITRealms gathered that the South-East traders comprising traders from Imo, Abia, Ebonyi, Enugu and Anambra States during the solidarity protest marched around major roads in Ekwulobia urban, chanting anti-Boko Haram songs and calling on the Federal Government to withdraw the terrorists from the area and any other part of Igboland.

Some of the placards during the protest read: “No Place for Boko Haram in Igboland.’’ “Buhari, return Boko Haram Prisoners to the North,” “Boko Haram Prisoners are Not Our Share of Democracy Dividends,” among others.
