A video of an Igbo masquerade kneeling to beg president, Muhammad Buhari to release the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu during #FreeNnamdiKanu protest in London has surfaced on social media.
Society gazette reports that Nigerians living in London, United Kingdom, took to the streets in protest, demanding the unconditional release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
It would be recalled that Nnamdi Kanu was arrested by the Nigerian government in Kenya on Sunday and extradited to Nigeria.
During a #FreeNnamdiKanu protest held in London, a masquerade was captured kneeling down, appealing to President Muhammadu Buhari to release the detained IPOB leader.
Some of the protesters waved the Biafran flag in a video shared on social media as they chanted, “Free Nnamdi Kanu now”, “Free Nnamdi Kanu now.”

Meanwhile, An American lobby firm, BW Global Group, has reportedly engaged the United States government over the arrest of the leader of IPOB.
According to TheCable, Foreign Lobby, a Washington-based platform, quoted BW as saying it “had been in touch with the State Department and Congress” about the arrest of Kanu.
It was gathered that the pro-Biafra activist signed a contract with BW Global Group to help promote IPOB in a bid to achieve its secession objective of Biafra.
