“He said, “All the corpses have been retrieved from their company stands.
It all started on Thursday when citizens in the city resisted paying a levy levied on them by IPOB, Yusuf said, narrating how the incident broke. Angered by their conduct, they went to burn down Orlu Eze’s palace.
Yusuf recalled that the Hausa group in Imo lost over 40 individuals during the #ENDSARS protest, saying it was not reported by the media and no action was taken.
