Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra in Spain have called for the immediate release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu from the custody of the Department of State Service.
Recall that the IPOB leader was reportedly abducted in Kenya in June and extradited to Nigeria.
The protesters in Spain displayed various placards stating their grievances over the arrest of kanu and his continued detention.
They also called for the immediate release of the IPOB leader.
One of the protesters in Spain could be heard saying in a video, “My name is Samson Joseph. We are live here in Spain protesting what the Nigerian government did to our leader, how they kidnapped our leader unlawfully from Kenya and took him to Nigeria. We are here in Spain to protest. We are live in Spain, capital of Madrid, today 19th of July, 2021.
“We are marching to the British Embassy. The world must hear us, the world must know how Fulanis are killing us, the world must know how Fulanis have declared the Jihad in the land of Biafra, how they are killing us to take our land from us.
“We have come out en masse to protest. We are IPOB. The Nigerian government must free our leader. Whether the Fulani likes it or not, Biafra must come. Biafra must be free, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu must be freed unconditionally because he has not committed any crime. Self-determination is a fundamental human right, we are simply calling for a referendum.
“We are not calling for war, we are calling for self-determination, a referendum is our right, they must give us. We are Biafrans, not Nigerians. Nigeria is a contraption, it is a zoo, it is a British company, Nigeria is a crime against humanity, we denounce Nigeria with our blood. Biafra is my identity. They must free Nnamdi Kanu, Nigeria must fall, Fulani cannot conquer us. Fulani will never take over our land.”
