The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, has reacted to a protest by some indigenes of Ogun State against the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown.

DAILY POST reported yesterday that protesters, majority of whom were traders and artisans, marched to the palace of the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, saying they were hungry and tired of the lockdown.

In his reaction on Friday, Kanu said the insensitive cabal ruling Nigeria has continued to ignore, what he called, the rising hunger/hardships, even though the COVID-19 lockdown is necessary.

According to Kanu, in a statement on his verified Twitter handle, the protest by the people of Ogun State is an indication that there is nationwide angst against, what he described as a union that has outlived its usefulness.

His words: “As necessary as the #COVIDLockdown is, the INSENSITIVE Cabal ruling Nigeria continues to ignore the rising hunger/hardships. The masses of Ogun State taking to the streets is indicative of a nationwide angst against a union that has outlived its usefulness.”
