Supporters of the movement for the actualization of Biafra, have taken to the streets in Central London demanding the release of their Nnamdi Kanu. Kanu, head of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) group and director of the London-based radio station Radio Biafra.
The Independent People Of Biafra staged a protest in central London, demanding the release of Nnamdi Kanu.
There were claims by the Department of State Services (DSS), that Kanu was released on bail, but his supporters claim that he is still being detained and is yet to resumed his activities on Radio Biafra.
IBTimes UK reports that the Biafran agitators accuse the Nigerian police of violence. However, the police have denied these claims, arguing that the Biafra advocates hold violent protests and threaten the peace of the nation.
According to Amnesty International, there are “credible evidence that pro-Biafran separatists in Nigeria are targeted by police”.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian government has said that it does not consider the separatist movement as a threat to the current administration.
The government has described the pro-Biafrans as an “insignificant number of frustrated people who are not a threat to the existence of Nigeria”.
Here is a video from the peaceful protest in London, demanding Kanu’s release and ultimately the freedom of the Biafran people. In the video, pro-Biafra activists made it clear that they would give “their Oil” in exchange for the sovereign state of Biafra.
They boasted that Biafra as a republic would be able to stand without revenue generated from petroleum.
