Meanwhile, members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday protested against the continued detention of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Naija News reports that the proscribed group took to the street in Jerusalem to demand the unconditional release of their detained leader.
The IPOB members were seen walking peacefully towards the seat of power in Jerusalem with both the Biafran and Israeli flags.
In a viral video, the Biafran agitators were seen soliciting the support of the Israeli government in achieving the self-determination of the Eastern region.
They were heard chanting, “Free Nnamdi Kanu now!”, “Give us Biafra!”, “No more Nigeria!”, “Israel government, help us speak out” as they carried placards with inscriptions such as “Biafran Referendum now”, “IPOB, ESN is a peaceful movement”.
