The arrest of the pro-Biafran protester that confronted Okorocha

On 9 March Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha’s PR stunt at Chatham House in London was interrupted by a member of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), an organisation advocating for the secession of Biafra from Nigeria.

The protester was then ejected from the venue and arrested outside Chatham House by the London Metropolitan Police, but he used that opportunity to make the case for their cause.

Watch the incident here:

Okorocha was rumoured to have asked about the young man’s details allegedly to “deal with him” if he ever set foot in Imo State.
