The Directorate of State, DOS, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, worldwide has declared 23rd September 2016 as the day for Biafrans worldwide to protest against the continued detention of its leader Nnamdi Kanu and for the freedom of Biafra people.
In a statement signed by its Media and Publicity Officer, Mr Emma Powerful, IPOB said the worldwide protest will take place in all the countries across the globe except in Biafra land and Nigeria where church services will be held in place of protest. The statement read: “Every IPOB member and other Biafrans living in Nigeria and Biafra land will stay in their homes on that day. We also ask that all markets, schools, banks, transport companies and manufacturing companies to close on that day in solidarity with the overall objectives of the Biafra restoration process irrespective of your persuasion or affiliation.”
It must be remembered that the last time a protest of this type held, a pile of dead bodies were left in its wake.
