However, when he visited Owerri, Mr. Adam was dismissed as police chief by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. His term of office is about to end and there is one month left, and the reason for the dismissal is unclear.
It has been 51 years since the end of the Nigerian Civil War, and people in the eastern region have left the rest of the country. The country they created, Biafra, came to an end after its leader surrendered after 30 months of fighting.
But Biafra’s dream is still alive and very good.
It was nurtured by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, a populist peddling conspiracy theories, including the death of the Nigerian president and being replaced by a man who was twice his height. Nevertheless, Mr. Kanu succeeded in attracting a large number of followers.
Young people in the southeastern state have complained for years about being arbitrarily arrested, tortured and killed at the hands of the security forces. These people are usually evacuated from other parts of Nigeria. Convinced that Biavia should be a separate country, many residents in the southeast said that the huge military power in the region reminds people of occupied foreign troops.
Jailbreaking is part of an attack on national security forces. According to local media reports, within two weeks starting in late February, 6 police stations in the southeast were razed to the ground, and gunmen killed 10 policemen.
Criminologist Umeagbalasi (Umeagbalasi) said: “As things develop, Nigeria may become the host of 30 to 40 insurgent groups within two years because the government pushes people towards the wall.”
