Arrest follow display of flag of Biafra

Supporters of the secessionist state of Biafra, which was crushed in the 1960s in its attempt to secede from Nigeria, attempted to hoist the Biafran flag in the city of Asaba.

    "Members of the group numbering about 25 arrived the town in the early hours of yesterday from the neighbouring Anambra State and marched through the streets as they demanded for a Republic of Biafra chanting war songs."

Ten of the demonstrators were arrested while attempting to hoist the Biafran flag.
