Delta: Protests For Nnamdi Kanu Shut Down Asaba Market

by Paul Osuyi,

Protesters under the aegis of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)  stormed major streets of Asaba, Delta State in peaceful against the continued incarceration of the Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.

The placard carrying protesters who also bore various Biafra insignias insisted that they would remain in the streets until the detained Kanu is released from the custody of security agencies.

The protest paralyzed socio-economic activities in the metropolis, causing traffic gridlock on the ever busy Nnebisi Road.

One of the protesters who simply identified himself as Mr. Ikenna told Daily Sun that the protest was a peaceful one to prevail on the Federal Government to release Kanu from detention.

Ikenna said security agencies were cooperating with them, noting that they were not being harassed as it used to be in the past.

“This is a peaceful protest for the release of our leader, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu from prison. We will continue to remain on the streets until he is freed. This protest is happening in Asaba alone by members of IPOB,” Ikenna added.

The detained Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu was billed to appear in court yesterday (Monday) for charges bordering on treasonable felony but disagreement between IPOB members, his family members and his wife over change of his counsel might jeopardize his chances in the legal tussle.
