Nigeria probing Biafra activist for 'terrorism': lawyer

Pro-Biafran activists have renewed their claim for a separate state, arguing the southeast region has been neglected by a succession of federal governments since the end of the civil warAn activist campaigning for a separate state of Biafra in southeast Nigeria is being investigated for “terrorism and terrorism financing”, his lawyer said on Monday. Nnamdi Kanu, whose arrest last month has sparked a wave of protests, is already charged with criminal conspiracy and intimidation as well as membership of an illegal organisation. Kanu is the director of Radio Biafra, which the government has accused of being “seditious” and of broadcasting “hate speech”, and a founder of the banned Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) group.
