The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has concluded plans to deploy its officers to aggrieved communities in the South Eastern part of the country to sensitise youth on the need to shun Biafra and sustain a united Nigeria.

The Chief Executive of NOA, Mr Mike Omeri, told journalists in Abuja that state governments are in the process of finding solutions to concerns expressed by pro-Biafra agitators.

He urged the youth to remain committed to strengthening principles that guide national development.

Pro-Biafra supporters have been staging protests in the South East in solidarity with the Biafra Radio host, Nnamdi Kalu, who has been detained by the Department of State Service (DSS).

The protesters, who storm streets in their hundreds.

Although the protesters appeared resolute to continue their march, security operatives managed to maintain the barricade, causing many commuters to resort to trekking long distances as a result of the gridlock caused by the face-off.

Some of the protesters told Channels Television that they would not back down from pursuing the freedom of the one they call their leader.

They called on the federal government to heed their cry and that of other pro-Biafran supporters for self-determination. (Channels TV)
