Naked women protest in Imo over Nnamdi Kanu’s whereabouts

IPOB women protest in Imo over Nnamdi Kanu

Scores of half-naked women stormed the streets of Owerri, the Imo State capital on Friday to protest the continued detention of leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Dressed in mostly in black, the women disrupted vehicular movement and other activities in some parts of the town.

The protesters chanted war songs and displayed different placards with inscriptions asking the Federal Government to release Kanu.

Some of the women said there would be no election in Igboland in 2019 because pro-Biafra agitators have been intimidated for expressing their views.

They claimed that security agencies knew the whereabouts of Kanu who has been out of public view since he had an encounter with the military in Umuahia, Abia State last year.

They asked Governor Rochas Okorocha to help them to actualise their dream of getting Biafra.

The women later barricaded the popular Government House Roundabout and created a chaotic atmosphere around the area.

One of their leaders, Ann Ibe, disclosed that they came out in full force to fight for the actualisation of their dream.

Mrs said they were ready to die for the cause.

When a special team of policemen sent by the Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, arrived at the scene, the protesters broke into a dance.

Some of them pulled off their clothes and danced naked, while others lay on the ground and dared the police.

The police arrested some of the protesters in spite of serious resistance for allegedly conducting an unlawful assembly and holding an unlawful protest.
