A South-East Based Coalition of Human Rights Organizations, SBCHROs, has accused security forces of killing 80 members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and their supporters between August 30, 2015, and February 9, 2016.
The coalition also estimated those maimed at 170, just as it put the total number of those arrested, detained, charged or kept in captivity without trial at 400.
What may perhaps be regarded as the most gruesome and brutal of these measures were in 29/30 May 2016 where a combined team of security operatives arrested and killed members of the group in different locations across south-eastern Nigeria.
