Showing solidarity to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, traders in Aba, commercial city of Abia State has shutdown markets across the city.
Aba is a city known for business and commerce and houses one of the biggest markets in Africa.
Locking up their shops, the traders cited that Nnamdi Kanu’s trial which commence today is more important than whatever gains they will be making today.
“In fact today should be a total sit at home,” a trader, Uche told Abacity Blog.
According to him, continuous trial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will caused more harm to Nigeria economy than good.
Kanu is standing trial on an offence bordering “treason”. He is the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, a group calling for Biafra Republic, a self determination enshrined in the United Nations law.
The federal government however, rearrested their leader in the overseas and extradited him back to Nigeria.
