The popular Onitsha Market, Anambra State is still under siege, following the protest by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, which entered two days on Wednesday.

The protesters embarked on a peaceful rally over the arrest of the Director of Radio Biafra 
Nnamdi Kanu and asked all traders in Onitsha and Aba markets to close shop until the man is released by the police.

The protest, however became more intense on Wednesday, making men of the Nigerian Police Force and Nigerian Army to resist the protesters from vandalizing public property.

The major roads in Onitsha were blocked by the protesters, making it difficult for travelers from other parts of the country to enter the Southeastern region on Wednesday.

The protesters took over the River Niger Bridge chanting solidarity songs as they called on the Federal Government to release Kanu without any condition.
