BREAKING: CNN finally voices Biafra call, Kanu’s illegal’ arrest, detention (Video)
The Cable News Network, has finally given voice to call for the sovereign state of Biafra since the arrest of separatist leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The giant media agent, according to Biafra agitators, is one of the platforms that snub ongoing movement in southern Nigeria.
The coverage is coming days after hundreds of people under the aegis of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) trooped out emass on the streets of London against the detention of their leader.
Kanu’s detention in Nigeria comes after the government’s secret agents tracked down the IPOB leader in an undisclosed country.
The Buhari administration said it was necessary for Kanu to continue his legal case at the high court years later.
The group’s legal team claims their client was wrongly arrested in Kenya and handed over to Nigeria security personnel after eight days of severe torture.
Both IPOB, and United Nations noted Kanu’s right was abused noting no court heard why Kanu was arrested. UN watch, UK government seek further explanation from Nigeria on circumstances arrest was made and deported.
CNN report on Tuesday says Kanu’s call for a separate country represents a governance vacuum within the southeast region.
Despite the apprehension of IPOB Chief, described as rendition, the supporters remain resolute and engaging civil disobedience – Sit-at-home amid security clampdown.
