Owerri. Pictures of some pro Biafrans agitators weeing and spitting on the Nigerian flag during the country’s 56th Independence Day celebrations have gone viral.
Some of the agitators were also seen burning the flag
The agitators are calling for the creation of the Republic of Biafra
The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, is currently facing treason charges over the group’s agitation for the actualization of the Republic of Biafra.
The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, began the agitation some years ago.
The attempt to carve out Biafra Republic in Southern Nigeria led to 30 months civil war.
