Some Nigerians on Friday took to the streets of London, United Kingdom, to protest against alleged killings and insecurity in the South East region of the country.

The protest which was reported by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) was staged on a day President Muhammadu Buhari was supposed to arrive in London for a check up.

The president, however, postponed the trip without giving reasons. According to the BBC, the protesters moved from Trafalgar Square to the Nigerian House in London to register their displeasure over the insecurity in the South East region.

The protesters, who were dressed in Igbo attires, were shown on live video chanting: “Enough is enough, stop killing the Igbos, Igbos have mothers too.”

The BBC also quoted one of the protesters as saying: “The Nigerian Army, police are in the South East killing our youths. Our parents have been maimed, our mothers have been raped, kidnapped, we are being marginalised.

The police, the army have no right to be in Igbo land, they should go to the North, children are being kidnapped, the army should go there and rescue them.

Enough is enough, they have no reason to come after us, they have refused to give us part of the national cake but we are a people who strive and work hard and make a living for ourselves. They should let us be!”
