The Independent People of Biafra and Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra have in recent weeks staged protests calling for the release of the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu and secession from Nigeria.
The Cross River Government, which issued the warning in light of information at its disposal that some elements outside the state were planning to stage a pro-Biafra protest, called on the people of the state, especially the youth, not to allow themselves to be used to achieve any self-serving interest.
The State Security Adviser, Mr Jude Ngaji, who gave the warning in a statement in Calabar, the state capital on Tuesday, said that security agencies have been placed on standby to ensure that no unauthorized march, procession or protest takes place in the state.
“The state government attaches great importance to the unity of the country and warned that any person or group of persons who embark on any protest without a written permission from the police shall be made to face the full force of the law”, Ngaji said.
