Punch reports that over 30 people were shot dead by security agencies, during the protest that reportedly turned violent.

IPOB Media and Publicity Officer, Comrade Emma Powerful, said “The Indigenous People of Biafra, under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, cries out over the deaths and the mass burial of Biafrans during the remembrance of Biafra heroes and heroines on Monday, 30th May, 2016.
