An eyewitness spoke to The News about the protests, which took place this morning: “As I talk to you now, the protesters are daring the security men. The protesters should go to their states in Abia, IMO, Anambra, Ebonyi and Enugu States and stop disturbing the peace of Port Harcourt,Rivers State. If they are protesting about the arrest and detention of Nnamdi KANU, the Director of Radio Biafra, they should go and protest in Abuja,not Port Harcourt.”
