The Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) has begun a one million phone call campaign to the American White House and the United Nations office, seeking to get the authorities in United States government and United Nations to look pressure them to act on getting its leader, Nnamdi Kanu released from detention.
Kanu was arrested in Lagos by the Nigerian Secret Police in October and has remained incarcerated since. Human rights groups declared him a prisoner of conscience after he had spent 93 days in detention.
The IPOB is also calling for a referendum to be held in the region regarding its call for an independence for the people of Biafra.
According to sources, call representatives at the listed phone numbers are having a torrid time dealing with the amount of phone calls that have been pouring in from all parts of the world seeking to speak to the government of the US and authorities at the United Nations.
