Members of the Biafra Zionists Federation (BZF) made a failed attempt at forcibly taking over the Enugu State government house yesterday.
The secessionist group had planned to use the premises to proclaim an independent state of Biafra.
 
About 30 BZF members, including their leader Benjamin Onwuka, were arrested in the process.
 
 
The action came in defiance of a sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). IPOB, in commemoration of slain Biafra supporters, had directed all residents of the southeast to stay indoors.
 
The police, however, admitted only 21 persons were detained, saying a manhunt was ongoing to find other accomplices in the “treasonable” offence.
 
Military fighter jets repeatedly flew past the southeast axis in what might have been a show of force, to prevent a breakdown of law and order.

The upper legislative chamber witnessed another round of altercations along party lines, yesterday, as embattled Senator Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi West) relocated to the row occupied by members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Melaye, who limped into the chamber with the aid of a walking stick and wearing a neck brace, appreciated the solidarity shown by his colleagues and members of his constituency during his ordeal at the hands of the police.
 
He asked Senate President Bukola Saraki to permit him to relocate from his assigned seat and move to the row of the PDP, precisely close to former Senate President, David Mark.
 
 
“I have a special request to you, Mr. President. Because of the trauma I went through and I am still going through, I want to seek your indulgence that you will call on the sergeant-at-arms to look for a comfortable seat for me on this side (pointing at the PDP row) of the divide, because I am no longer comfortable sitting here.


 
“So, I want to ask Mr. President that you mandate the sergeant-at-arms tomorrow to look for a seat for me on this other divide of the chamber.
 
And before you do that today, through the help of my walking stick, I will take a comfortable seat close to Papa General Senator David Mark, pending when you get me a comfortable seat on this side,” Melaye said.
