Some suspected supporters of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have booed the campaign team of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in Anambra State, Valentine Ozigbo.
In a video circulating online, the PDP members were stopped from holding a campaign rally at head medicine market, popularly known as Ogbo Ogwu Onitsha.
They had visited the market to hold their campaign ahead of the November 6 governorship election in the state.
Rather than being welcomed, the politicians were disgraced and booed off by the traders who were heard saying there would be no campaign in the market.
In the video, the traders were seen singing in support of the detained leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
They were heard chanting, “Holy, Holy, Nnamdi Kanu is another saviour.”
The Nigerian government had in June announced Kanu’s arrest and extradition from Kenya to continue to face trial in Nigeria.
He is facing charges bordering on treasonable felony instituted against him at the court in response to years of campaign for the independent Republic of Biafra through IPOB.
The IPOB leader was granted bail in April 2017 for health reasons but fled the country after his house in Abia State was attacked by the military.
