Thousands of IPOB members and supporters of the Biafran movement in Nigeria took to the street on Wednesday to protest the arrest of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu,54, was arrested and brought back to Nigeria on Sunday June 27 for the continuation of his trial on charges bordering on terrorism, treasonable felony, unlawful possession of firearms and management of an unlawful society. Read our previous report here.

In the video, crowd is seen marching, chanting, and waving Biafra flags on the road while others are on motorbikes and buses.

One of the protesters filming the incident said, “This is Igweocha in Port Harcourt. This is Biafra land. For Buhari to tamper with Nnamdi Kanu, he’s finished. We are going there.”

The irate mob who flooded one lane of the road also caused traffic congestion on the other lane.
