Hundreds of Biafra agitators gathered outside the home of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu in Umuahia on Wednesday, June 28, 2017, chanting, “All we are saying, give us Biafra”.
In videos tweeted by journalist Kadaria Ahmed on her Twitter handle (@KadariaAhmed), hundreds of people can be seen waving the Biafran flag chanting, while Kanu stands on the balcony of his house, not too far away from the Abia state government house.
In one video, Kanu can be seen waving at the noisy crowd down below in solidarity, and at some point, pointed up to the sky.
One of the conditions Justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court in Abuja handed out before granting Kanu bail in April was that he shouldn’t address a crowd of more than 10 people.
He has appeared to violate that condition on a number of occasions since his release from jail after he was picked up by law enforcement in 2015.
Kanu had also declared days ago that no election will hold in the southeast region during the 2019 general elections.
He said, “In 2019, the whole of Biafra land will not vote for any president. There’ll be no Senator, there will be no House of Reps, there’ll be no House of Assembly and there’ll be no Councillorship elections in Biafra land if the federal government fails to call for a referendum”.
“Nigerian government should build as many prisons as possible to jail all Biafrans because there is no going back and we are ready to go to prisons…”
