Pro-Biafra Protesters Storm FCT Court To Demand Release Of Nnamdi Kanu
A group of pro-Biafra agitators today, Tuesday, December 1 stormed the federal capital territory magistrate court to demand the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who is being accused of charges bordering on treason and terrorism.
The protesters numbering about 500, carried the defunct Biafran flag and banners with the inscription “Indigenous Peoples of Biafra” while singing songs of solidarity and chanted,
“All we are saying give us Biafra.”
Kanu’s lawyer, Vincent Obetta, told journalists however that the that the court could not sit as the judge was indisposed. He said:
“Unfortunately the court will not be sitting owing to an act of God that has befallen the magistrate. We will try to pick a date. But we have not picked a date because we have not been able to reach the magistrate.”
