Libreville, November 11, 2015, (Blank NEWS Online) – By Sunday Ikuesan
A group of people who identify themselves as members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) protest at the gate of Embassy of Nigeria in Gabon in the early hour of this week.
The group paid a surprise protest visit to the Embassy to advocate for the sovereignty of the Republic of Biafra among others. In their display placards swung amidst dances and war songs, our reporters captioned their messages which read as follows: “We need Biafra Sovereignty”, “Freedom is not a curse”, “Free our leader”. These of course are the reasons for their protest.
Our reporters gathered that their noises and songs at the gate of the Embassy drew the attention of Nigerian diplomats who came out to address the protesters. Mr John Ishaya who spoke to the pro-biafra protesters on behalf of the ambassador promised to communicate their grievances to the hierarchy. Notwithstanding, he advised them against unlawful protests and more.
To finish, Mr John Ishaya informed the protesters of the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu. News which was completely alien to the group. The demonstration of the pro-biafra protesters at the gate of the Embassy created some embarrassments as it puts visitors to the Embassy away for almost 2 hours.
