A dusk-to-dawn curfew has been imposed on Nigeria's south-eastern Abia State following clashes between the military and activists campaigning for the creation of an independent state of Biafra.

State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, who announced the curfew following a meeting with top security officials, said the curfew would remain in force until Thursday.

Nigeria's military has launched "Operation Python Dance" in a bid to end the campaign for secession by the Indigenous People of Biafra.
