Biafra agitators clash with police in P’Harcourt FeaturedWritten by EMMA OWHONDAH
Pro-Biafra demonstrators on Friday held Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, in a lock-down. Several hundreds of the youths took to various streets in the city waving American, Biafran and Israeli flags, chanting "All we are saying, give us Biafra".
The demonstration was meant to coincide with today's inauguration of Donald Trump as America's 45th President. Believed to be members of Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, the protesters told The Neighbourhood Trump, as America's President, would collaborate with their agitation, ensure Mr. Kanu was released and Biafra achieved. They also carried portraits of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is facing charges in a Nigerian court.
The Friday demonstration turned bloody in the Artillery area of Port Harcourt when the pro-Biafra agitators clashed with armed policemen who had broken into the procession and arrested about 7 of the demonstrators.
