SAN FRANCISCO, June 28, (THEWILL) – Thousands of pro-Biafra agitators, on Wednesday, stormed the compound of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of London based radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, in Isiama Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia in Abia state, demanding for the Republic of Biafra.
In several video clips which has gone viral on social media, thousands of people with Biafran flag were heard chanting “All we are saying, Give us Biafra”.
THEWILL reports that Nnamdi Kanu’s compound is just a stone throw away from the Abia State Government House in Umuahia.
The development, which is not the first mass gathering of pro-Biafra agitators in Kanu’s compound, is coming two months after the Ipob Leader regained freedom after spending 18 months in detention.
THEWILL recalls that Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had granted bail to Kanu on health grounds and ordered him not to grant press interviews and avoid being seen in a crowd of more than 10 people.
The IPOB leader was freed after meeting the bail conditions but he has not only addressed hundreds of his supporters but has also granted media interviews where he declared that the coming of the Republic of Biafra was imminent.
