Enugu Residents Stage Protest Over Boko Haram Prisoners Being Moved to the East



A few weeks ago, BN brought you the news that residents and traders in Ekwulobia, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, took to the streets to protest the transfer of Boko Haram prisoners to Anambra prisons.

Following the protests, Anambra governor, Willie Obiano, promised residents in the state that the prisoners would soon be relocated.

However, Enugu residents have joined the voices of protest. According to several online reports, residents took to the streets of Abakpa Nike and Ogbete Market to urge the federal government to take prompt action concerning the matter.

    Nobody has commented on this yet because it is not about Kim K and Tonto Dike, after we go say BN is overhyping them when in actual fact it is what we want to read that BN dishes out to us. Naija I hail o.

      Dont blame people my person. It is really unbelievable that this happened. Imagine the effrontery! After being the targets of the evil blood sucking devils for so long, no thought was given to the likely consequence of getting the dregs of society into igbo land and so exposing that region to possible involvement in the mindless demonic brigandage.

      Now the cover is blown on their presence in Igbo land, you can be sure that their members may not be far from there as jailbreak and rescue attempts is no difficult task for them in the face of the ill equipping of our security personnel

      We are confronted with Kidnapping and that’s more than enough.

    I like that citizens, even neighboring States like Enugu can stand up and protest evil.What is wrong is wrong. There is no justifictaion for sending those criminals to Ekwulobia prisons or to the East when they certainly have prisons where these criminals wrecked havoc.

    Why the protest. Igboland land is empty. They have relocated to yorubaland filled with mulk and honey. Why not inhabit it with their brothers. Rubbish. More prison should be built there. Why are you afraid. Thot your tribe is the strongest .iranu.

      @ Amh… Igbos are not really afraid but upset. How insulting!
      You take our natural resources, repatriate our homeless sons and daughters, then unleash prisoners and beggars on us.

      Lol at Igbo land is empty. What ignorance. For your info the SE region of Nigeria is the most densely populated in Africa. Google is your friend. As for the rest of your comment, don’t forget that hatred is a killer.

    The Land where the sun rises. Blessed beyond measure. You can’t curse those that have been blessed by God. Whatever evil you propose in your heart concerning them backfires. If you are a christian, I will urge you to go read about the king of moab that asked a prophet to go and curse the children of Israel. Only blessings came out of the prophets mouth. That is the igboland and the igbo people. A people that God’s blessing is in their(our)DNA. From Nigeria to every part of the world. Even those that were taken as slaves turned the countries they were taken to around. For good. So leave eh, just a pity that the hate you feel for us will consume you and then your carcass will be meal to the birds of the air like jezebel’s. How did you come to this state? @ Amh. #proudlyIGBO #Imorepping #IsialaMbanowem #IgboKwezonu #BornBredinLagos #ProudlyNigerian #HatersDielikeJezebel

    People like this @amh and this govt with ulterior motive is exactly what ojukwu saw in advance & said igbos go your way they hate you. but here we are today. Surrounded by hate from all angles. Better start thinking into the future people. This bk move makes 0 sense. Non what so ever.
