Angered by the continued incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu, women in Abia State again protested and demanded the unconditional release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The new protest erupted in Aba, the commercial town of Abia State, after reports said the IPOB chief is facing health issues in the custody of the Department of State Services of Nigeria.
At the Friday, December 16 protest, the women called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to obey a court order that acquitted and called on the government to release the self-determination activist.
In a conversation with Tagzette, the women who had threatened to take severe actions against the Muhammadu Buhari's administration said they were "losing patience".
"Buhari's regime should obey the court order and release our son Nnamdi Kanu," said one of the protesters.
Another woman described Nnamdi Kanu's imprisonment as an injustice and a violation of human rights.
“We want the government to release our son Nnamdi Kanu, let's take care of his ill health,” she said.
Kanu, who is calling for a referendum on an independent state of Biafra, was abducted in Kenya and extraordinarily renditioned to Nigeria in 2021.
