The protesters who were mainly young men and women staged a peaceful protest at the city of Aba, chanting songs calling for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, their leader.
The protesters, in a video which has gone viral on social media sang and danced along the streets of Aba, while demanding the release of their leader, Kanu who had been in DSS detention since June 2021.
Also, in another video, gunshots were heard and a voice behind the video said they were being shot at by the Nigerian security who came to disperse them from protesting.
Some residents, who confirmed the gunshots to SaharaReporters on telephone, said they were yet to ascertain casualties, but the protesters were being shot at by the combined team of police and military along Osusu by Faulks road, Aba.
