Nigeria declares Biafra terrorists:
Nigeria’s military on Friday named the Indigenous People of Biafra a terrorist organization, targeting a movement that 50 years ago tried to create a state for the Igbo people.
The declaration comes amid rising calls for secession in the southeast and reports of recent clashes between supporters and security forces. The movement’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, was freed earlier this year following a 2015 arrest that led to protests. He had been accused of terrorism. (AP)
