SocialMediaTrends: Nigerians react to Owerri prison break; Banky W & Adesua miscarriage story



Owerri, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu

The social media space was awash with reactions to the brewing tension in Owerri following reports that over 2,000 inmates from a correctional facility in the state had been freed by unknown gunmen in the early hours of Monday.

The gunmen were said to have attacked the Nigerian Prison headquarters in the state as well as a State Criminal Investigation Department of the State Police Command where they freed suspects and burnt vehicles parked in the premises.

The attack which reportedly lasted for about two hours had caused panic in the town as video footages shared on Twitter showed structures in some locations going up in flames.

Reacting to allegations by the Nigerian Police Command that the attack was carried out by operatives of the Eastern Security Network, Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu tweeted:

“If Miyetti Allah terror herdsmen and other murderous #fulani groups, including Boko Haram insurgents can be arrested, freed, rehabilitated by this neo-colonial Fulanised @NGRPresident, then no singly soul deserves to be in any prison in Nigeria. If you know, you know! #UGM”

Kanu’s tweet and the recent development in the state got the following reactions from Twitter users:
