The Rivers State Police Command says it has arraigned 10 suspected pro-Biafra protesters arrested between Saturday and Monday.

The suspects were arraigned on Wednesday at Magistrate Courts 7 and 14 in Port Harcourt on two count charges of criminal conspiracy and treasonable felony, a statement by the Rivers State police spokesperson, Ahmad Muhammad, said.

The statement said one hearing was adjourned till Thursday, and another till next week Thursday.

The presiding magistrates ordered for the suspects to be remanded in prison custody.

According to the police, the suspects are Onu Ifeanyi, Prince Onwazor, Princewill Anyanywu, Sunday Egbim, Uzoma Onyegbu, Chigozie Moses, Chukwudi Enyidau, Anthony Ochuel, Enam David okon, and Friday Nwahiri.

“It would be recalled that the suspects were arrested while on their way to infiltrate Port Harcourt from neighbouring states with the intent to engage in a conduct likely to undermine public peace,” the statement said.

“The command wishes to further re-emphasize that it will not stand idly and allow any person or group of persons to violate the laws of country by engaging in conducts that are perilous to public peace and order as well as the lives and properties of other law abiding citizens, please.”

The suspects were arraigned in Port Harcourt just as a court in Abuja, same day, remanded the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

    Sheik Ahmad Muhammad is following the direction of his Mohammedan ruler, Mohamed Buhari. Sheik Ahmad Muhammad is not from Ogoni, Kalabari, Ijaw, Ikwerre, Okrika, nor from any of the ethnic groups in Rivers state. He is not speaking for Rivers people. Sheik Ahmad Muhammad is there to protect oil for his Fulani tribesmen. No biggie.

    • Wale

      The sitting governor of Rivers State is speaking on behalf of Rivers people, treasonable offenses carries death penalty if found guilty.So, softly, softly dude, do not jeopardize these guys lives with silly posts, please.
      Gov. Wike is trying his best to impress somebody, so don’t allow him to use these guys as pawns.

      • Otile

        Nyesom Nwike onye Umueprikom has been disqualified by his Fulani masters. No amount of appeasement will save him. Fulani injustice has caught him. Wandaa Wike ki me kwum bu nni?

        • Wale

          Neither do I speak nor understand Igbo.

          Que Passa Amigo.

          • Otile

            Amigo mi, nada. I thought you people claim that there are no Igbo natives of Rivers state. What I wrote here is the dialect of Igbo we speak in the Rivers and your hero Nwike speaks it too. Call him he will explain it to you.

          • concernednigerian

            It is the Ikwerre people that say they are not Igbo. If you think they are then take them. Neither Ijaw nor Ogoni would shed tears because the Ikwerre people have been excised from Rivers State. They will only take the suburb of Port Harcourt which is theirs but not Port Harcourt Township which is owned by Okrika-Ijaw. In any case, respect the views of the Ikwerre in determining their ethnicity.

          • Wale

            Will surely do that, thanks for the head up.

          • Sir Demo

            Just as there are native Yorubas in Agbor!

          • His nobody amigo he’s a “consumición de la carne de mono”

          • Sir Demo

            Indeed! If he gets shame, this na TKO, But Otile? he no get shame na

    • PolyGon2013

      So, you won’t rain any curses on them because you are too scared?

      • Otile

        I never curse people, if or when I am forced to do so it is only to respond to cursors in kind. Now that you did not curse me, did I curse you?

        • PolyGon2013

          No, you didn’t. That is a good start.

      • Burbank

        Alhaji Dokubo Asari is a Fulani or an Ijaw?

        • PolyGon2013

          Both, I think.

  • Etomi

    And I heard the Lord God say in his holiness, and I rejoiced: I WILL DIVIDE SHECHEM!!!!!

    Buhari is setting the stage for the INEVITABLE….

    People of God rejoice, like the Psalmist!!!!

    • Burbank

      Buhari is setting the stage for the INEVITABLE….that Nnamdi Kanu will be caged.

      • Etomi

        Like Mandela was caged, and apartheid fell…

        Like Martin Luther King Jnr. was killed and the Segregation policy in the US fell…

        Like Jesus Christ was killed and salvation came to man…

        Once have GOD spoken and twice have I heard that NIGERIA would split…

        Not by power; not by might, but by the holy finger of God!!!!

  • Tunji Olarewaju

    Ten dead men on the dead man’s chest,yo ho ,ho and a bottle of rum…

    • Otile

      Don’t mock or rejoice yet. Before long your Fulani master will turn to oppress you too. Treachery did not help Mashood and his wife. …yo ho ho nothing, don’t sing your kumba ya yet. They are still holding Ilorin, and now eyeing Osun and Oyo states. Half the population of Osun Oyo and Ekiti have been converted to Mohamedanism, and those of you mocking Igbo are Islamic converts from these states. Awon odale.

      • Sir Demo

        Get your brain working. Yorubas have embraced Islam long before Uthman Dan Fodio Islamize the North. 90% of indigenous Lagos islanders are Muslims, converted by the Fulanis?

      • Burbank

        And what is the religion of Alhaji Dokubo Asari?

  • Gugurus Ekpa

    It brings me comfort to know that the silly Biafrans are slowly being crushed and their dreams dashed.

    • Otile

      Diaper sniffer, it always gives you comfort whenever a non Muslim is maltreated or killed. You must have been most thrilled when Obasanjo and Oladipo Diya were mishandled by your Fulani masters. Very soon you will claim you have defeated Biafra as you technically defeated Boko Haram or killed Imam Shekau severally.

      • Gugurus Ekpa


        Is that not crazy baby talk?

    • Burbank

      Terrorists must be wiped out, mercilessly and completely.

  • No man ought to lost his/her soul to a course they believe in, yibo should have their biafra, what i don’t understand is what is holding them back? You want to go, why not go?

  • Sir Demo

    I hope these twits appreciate the mess they ve landed themselves in. Treasonable felony carry a max of DEATH SENTENCE
