Nigeria’s pro-Biafra rally in support of Trump turns Violent

A rally by a Nigerian separatist group – the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) – in support of US in-coming President Donald Trump has turned violent.

Reports from Port Harcourt in southern Nigeria say hundreds of people from different states in the south-east marched to the city asking for the creation of Biafra state.

Security forces tried to stop them, resulting in clashes.

At the moment, it is not clear how many people have been injured in the clashes.

The activists have been campaigning for a breakaway state in the east of the country.

They endorsed the Republican candidate during the US presidential race in the hope he would recognise their independence movement – especially after his comments about “self-determination” in regards to the UK leaving the European Union.

People have been tweeting pictures from the protest.
