A rally by Nigerian separatist group – the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) – in support of US in-coming President Donald Trump, has turned violent, BBC reports.
Reports from Port Harcourt say hundreds of people from different states in the south-east marched to the city asking for the creation of Biafra state. Security forces tried to stop them, resulting in clashes. .
At the moment, it is not clear how many people have been injured in the clashes. Members of the group are alleging that some pro-Biafra supporters have been shot dead by security operatives, something the police in Port Harcourt deny.
