The Rivers State Police Command said it has arraigned ten suspected Pro Biafra protesters arrested between 16-18/01/2016 before Magistrate Courts 7 and 14 in Port Harcourt on two count charges of criminal conspiracy and treasonable felony.  
Hearing on the cases has been adjourned till 21/01/2016 and 28/01/2016 respectively while the presiding magistrates ordered for the suspects to be remanded in prison custody.
The suspects include Onu Ifeanyi ‘M’, Prinace Onwazor ‘M’, Princewill Anyanywu ‘M’, Sunday Egbim ‘M’. Uzoma Onyegbu ‘M’, Chigozie Moses ‘M’, Chukwudi Enyidau ‘M’, Anthony Ochuel ‘M’ Enam David okon ‘M’ and Friday Nwahiri ‘M’. 
It would be recalled that the suspects were arrested while on their way to infiltrate Port Harcourt from neighbouring states with the intent to engage in a conduct likely to undermine public peace.
The Command further  re-emphasize that it would not stand idly and allow any person or group of persons to violate the laws of the country by engaging in conducts that are perilous to public peace and order as well as the lives and properties of other law abiding citizens.
A statement signed by the Command spokesperson, Ahmad Mohammed enjoined residents of the state to continue to be law-abiding and shun all forms of acts of violence and the breach of the peace.
