Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday took to the street in Jerusalem to demand the unconditional release of their detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian government.

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”.

The protesters also bore placards containing pictures of young children who were victims of the Nigerian-Biafran war which ravaged the country years ago.

A man who was supposedly an Israeli government official was seen approaching the protesters to understand their mission.

One of the protesters explained that they had come to protest against the incarceration of their leader in the Department of State Services’ custody in Nigeria.

He stated that the Nigerian government and its security agents had killed too many Biafrans over nothing while calling for an end to the insecurity in the region.

A female protester further explained that Kanu had simply called for an end to insecurity in the South-East but he was arrested and had been detained since June adding that the government and its officials wanted to kill the IPOB leader.
