Hananya Naftali, a native Israeli Jew and activist, called for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
“The Nigerian government must release him from captivity. Expressing support for Biafrans is not a crime, it’s freedom of speech.
Biafrans face severe discrimination from Nigerian authorities, have a hard time to get jobs, and the saddest part is that Islamist groups in Nigeria continue to slaughter them.
Bodies of dead Biafrans are thrown into the bushes, left in the street or buried disrespectfully. This is how radical Islamists are treating Christians and Jews in Biafra today.”- said Naftali, who is also an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reservist.
