REFERENDUM: Yoruba Nation, IPOB, others storm UN General Assembly

REFERENDUM: Yoruba Nation, IPOB, others storm UN General Assembly

Separatist campaigners-Yoruba Nation agitators, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and other agitators from the South and the Middle Belt- have stormed the United Nations for their one-million-man freedom march.

The protest, monitored virtually by The Nation, is coordinated by the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS).

The protesters are demanding the United Nations to supervise referendums in the Middle Belt and southern parts of Nigeria.

They also demanded an end to the genocide being perpetrated by suspected herdsmen in the name of grazing and rejected 1999 constitution.

The Nation reports the protest, which holds from September 14 to 24 opposite the UN headquarters in New York, United States, coincides with the 76th UN General Assembly, which started on Tuesday.

The Chairman of the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS), Prof. Banji Akintoye, and other leaders in a statement made available to The Nation stated that the protest was to draw the attention of world leaders to state-sponsored terrorism against the people of the Middle Belt and southern Nigeria.
