Officials have blamed a banned separatist group for increasing violence in the region.

The Indigenous People of Biafra, which is campaigning for a breakaway state, has denied involvement in recent attacks.

Its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is standing trial for terrorism and treason-related charges which he has denied.
