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.
