  • Description

    A crowd of angry Biafran students marched through Manchester, England today to protest against British shipments of arms to Nigeria.

    The students, natives of the breakaway state that was formerly the Eastern Region of Nigeria, carried anti-British banners. They also carried banners criticising Major-General Gowon, head of the Nigerian Federal Government.

    As they marched through the streets they chanted "Ojukwu" -- the name of the Biafran rebel leader, Lieutenant-Colonel Odumegwu Ojukwu.
