Kanu’s Family Joins Pro-Biafra Protest in Aba Abia State

The family members of the detained Radio Biafra director Nnamdi Kanu joined a protest organised by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOD) in Umuahia, the capital of Abia state. The protestors started from Port Harcourt on November 15 with IPOD activists walking to Aba and then Umuahia. As they trekked to Aba, the number increased.
On getting to Ubakala, close to Umuahia, the group was stopped by security personnel who attempted to disperse them but failed. The protesters passed the night at Ubakala, where they were joined by Kanu’s mother, Ugo Eze Sally Nnenne Kanu, and sister, Princess Chichi Kanu, at 5.30am yesterday. Lolo Kanu, the mother of the detained leader with other members of the royal family, joined the activists in Umuahia city, the home town of Nnamdi Kanu. Trekking together with the Biafra supporters, she continuously called for the release of her son who is still being held by the DSS. However, Okezie Ikpeazu, the governor of Abia state, cautioned the pro-Biafra protestors seeking the release of their leader and the creation of Biafra state against disrupting the peace in the state capital.
