#USAfricaLIVE #Biafra Aba shutdown by pro-Biafra demonstrators.
Parts of the commercial heartland of south eastern Nigeria, Aba in Abia State, were brought to several disruptions and operational challenges as members and sympathizers for the peaceful movement called the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) marched across the city.
Among their issues, reports USAfricaonline.com correspondent Ugo Nwangwu in Aba, is their call “for a peaceful. non-violent exit from Nigeria” and a demand for the immediate release of the leader of the controversial and popular Radio Biafra. Nnamdi Kanu.
He is being detained by the federal government of Nigeria — for yet unspecified charges — when he travelled from London, reportedly, to Nigeria.
There were several demonstrations in different parts of the pre-1967 Eastern Nigeria, including Port Harcourt, Asaba, Onitsha, and major cities in the world.
Aba, a multi-community city, historically, offers an indication of the political and socio-economic currents of the Igbo. I was born and raised in Aba.
