IPOB issued a press statement asking all who identified with its secessionist ideology to attend a pro-Trump rally in the oil rich city of Port Harcourt, located in Nigeria’s southern region. The IPOB says it is calling for a “peaceful solidarity rally for the U.S. President-Elect Donald J. Trump,” adding that it supports “civil and pr7agmatic democracy anywhere we find it.”
IPOB believes that Trump, who targeted organizations such as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and supported Britain’s exit from the European Union, would be sympathetic to their demands for an independent nation state. The group is pushing for its own version of “Brexit,” which has recently been christened “Biafraexit.”
The rally, which is billed for Friday, is meant to coincide with Trump’s official inauguration as the 45th U.S. president
