A planned meeting of some Igbo residents in the Oyigbo local government area of Rivers state has been banned by Governor Nyesom Wike.

He said the action was: “To ensure that the said meeting does not hold to forestall a breakdown of law and order in the area.” 


The banned meeting was organised by the United Igbo community. 


 According to PM News, Oyigbo local government area which shares a boundary with Abia state is considered a stronghold of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a proscribed group. 


 The group was in October 2020 blamed for attacks on police officers and its facilities in the area. 


The attacks led to a military operation in which soldiers and civilians were reportedly killed.
