Nigerian police said they arrested more than 80 members of a Biafran separatist movement on Friday during one of a series of protests across the oil-rich southeast against the detention of the group’s leader.

The 78 men and five women were detained in a motorpark in Yenagoa, the capital of Bayelsa state, “because they want to foment troubles and unleash mayhem” said Bayelsa police spokesman Anisim Butswat.
 

Witnesses reported other rallies in at least four other areas, and one activist said police fired tear gas at marchers from Imo state walking to Bayelsa state border, though there was no independent confirmation.
 
Secessionist feeling has continued to simmer in the region since the Biafra separatist rebellion tipped the country into a 1967-70 civil war that killed an estimated 1 million people.

The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra group called for a “million man march” on Friday after their leader Nnamdi Kanu was arrested in Nigeria on charges relating to broadcasts by his Radio Biafra station.

It was not immediately clear if the group had attracted anywhere near that number of people onto the streets.

I know so many people would think they are only fighting for their right but the question is: But what we all forget is that Nigeria is the right of we all. Why leave wat u've gotten for something that would cause problem.

Fools will always remain fools, that's for sure, it was Nigerians that shot and killed, the peaceful protesters it was the same Nigerians that fired tear gas and they say that they were arrested" because they want to"  foment troubles and unleash mayhem,  the violent police are yet to realize that they have fomented the troubles and unleashed the mayhem already! The police should be in prison not the protesters, but it's the zoo, they do things abnormally.

@10shun " Do u expect the Police to check or smile at them.... It seems you don't know how tough pple could be.

Do u at all know what a peaceful protest means?  It is a peaceful protest when they  cause no threats or danger to anyone, u call them tough because they're using only their voice to protest? Are they destroying properties? Did the police say they killed or injured anyone? Or did u see them with any weapon?  It is the police that is the danger here, not the peaceful protesters.
I don't blame u, ur media has feed u with so much junk all ur life u can't tell the difference between a peaceful and a violent protests.

The police are not doing the right thing. When has a peaceful protest become a crime in Nigeria... I'll keep on asking about the so called Amnesty International,where are they? They can only defend Boko Haram because they are fighting their course.
