The Ten pro-Biafran protesters that were arrested between January 16-18 in Rivers State have been charged before a Magistrate court by the Rivers State Police Command on Thursday January 21st
They were all arraigned at Magistrates’ Courts 7 and 14 in Port Harcourt on a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and treasonable felony.
According to the Police Public Relations Officer of Rivers Police Command, Ahmad Muhammad, the suspects were arrested on their way to infiltrate Port Harcourt from neighbouring states with the intent to engage in a conduct likely to undermine public peace.
Muhammad warned that:
The command 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.
