Members of the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS) stormed the United Nations headquarters in New York, pressing international leaders to make it easier for Nigeria to have a referendum.

On Tuesday, agitators assembled at the UN offices, and on Wednesday, they returned to press their demand for a referendum.

Southerners and Middle Belt people are represented in the coalition of self-determination agitators led by Ilana Omo Oodua, the Lower Niger Congress, and the Middle Belt Movement, respectively, by Prof Banji Akintoye, Tony Nnadi, and Yusuf Turaki.

Protesters on the streets of New York, photographed by SaharaReporters, are demanding a vote to allow them to form their own countries.

The group has previously stated that it would protest during the United Nations General Assembly’s 76th Session, which will be held in New York from September 14 to 21.

Some of the protesters carried placards bearing inscriptions such as, “End Nigeria to save lives”, ”Nigerian Army killing Nigerians, Buhari is a tyrant leader”, and “We demand a referendum to decide our nationhood now”.
