Church members in Enugu, Enugu State, on Sunday joined hundreds of Pro-Biafra activists in storming the streets of the state, protesting the detention of the Director of Radio Biafra and leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.
Kanu was recently arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) on arrival to Nigeria last October.
The protesters, who were marching through major streets in Enugu metropolis, as at the time of filling this report, were also demanding urgent recognition of the Sovereign State of Biafra.
Chanting anti-Federal government slogans, they declared their opposition to the incarceration of the IPOB leader.
