On the alleged killing of members of IPOB and their subsequent alleged burial in a shallow pit, the board ​said this was untrue.
Blatantly denying a worldwide known fact, According to a well-investigated report by Amnesty International, the Nigerian Army on 30th May 2016, shot and killed over 100 IPOB members who have gathered to celebrate a May 30th, Biafra heroes day and took away the bodies as reported by the international organization.
