President Muhammadu Buhari and the Aso Rock Villa was bored in the early hours of today as the British Broadcasting Corporation BBC has reported and published their first event concerning the Secession State of Biafra.
The British Media authorities has breached a long-term secret agreement with the Nigerian Government, never to report any event concerning the Secession State of Biafra.
This issue would have stopped the naming of ministers today. Meanwhile, in a related event yesterday, the South East Governors held a meeting on how to stop/negotiate with the Pro-Biafran Protesters. The meeting ended without a positive result. Also, the meeting with the South East Governors and the PAN-Igbo Group 'Ohaneze Ndi Igbo' was postponed till an unstated date.
Today, the United States giant media 'YAHOO News' and other media companies has tapped from the BBC to report events from the Biafra secessionist state and their territory. The Western Media Reporters has flooded the zone and reporting events directly. These caused more tension in the Aso Rock Villa.
Over hundreds of thousand people in the South-East and South-South of Nigeria have been protesting about the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu, an activist who supports the secession of the State of Biafra. The director of banned Radio Biafra was arrested last month and is still being held despite calls/orders to free him.
There are reports of armed security personnels shooting at protesters at various South-East and South-South states. Thousands of protesters were arrested and detained too.
Protests started from Aba and circulated through Owerri, Onitsha, Awka, Asaba, Enugu, Port-Harcourt, Calabar, Uyo, etc. The demonstrators are mostly young men holding Biafra flags and banners with pictures of Mr Kanu, who is also a leader in the secessionist Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
"We won't give up until our director Nnamdi Kanu is released. We are fighting against the "injustice and inequality" Biafrans faced in Nigeria. We have businesses everywhere in the country, but we are getting nothing apart from political and social marginalization. Our lives and properties are not secured; we want to live on our own." said one of the protesters.
