Meanwhile, IPOB announced that members of the group protesting against President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to South Africa were on Thursday attacked by the South African Police with many of them also being shot.
Though the group did not give the figure of fatality, a statement signed by its spokesman, Comrade Emma Powerful described the incident as “barbaric and disgraceful”.
He said that the attack against peaceful IPOB protesters by South African police is proof that state-sanctioned politics of savagery has taken firm hold in Cyril Ramaphosa’s South Africa.
“This is a thoroughly ugly and distasteful development that pales White aparthied regime into insignificance in terms of its brutality and incredulity,” the statement said.
