#IPOB: Women Protest Against Detention of Nnamdi Kanu, Calls For His Immediate Release
Women supporters of Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), have come out en-masse as they thronged the court on Wednesday to call for the immediate release of the agitator.
Sahara Reporters noted that the women who were mostly middle-aged said Nnamdi Kanu had committed no crime and should be freed from the detention of the DSS.
A woman perceived to be their leader said, “Free our son, he has committed no crime. This man lost his parents to this struggle. He’s our saviour.”
The women subsequently sat on the floor, wailing and mourning the detention of the IPOB leader while they rolled on the floor in their Isiagu attire.
Meanwhile, there were also male supporters at the venue who alleged that Nnamdi Kanu was being detained for seeking the independence of the southeast region.
One of them said, “They should allow us to go, you move according to your pace. We must go. Biafra must be free, whether they like it or not, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu must be free, that’s what we’re saying, give us our freedom. They should allow us to develop.”
Nnamdi Kanu appeared in court today for his hearing on the 15-count terrorism charges slammed against him by the Nigerian Government.
Judge Binta Nyako has adjourned the court trial to the 8th of April 2022 for ruling.
