Hundreds of people in southern Nigeria have been protesting about the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu, an activist who supports the creation of a breakaway state of Biafra.
The director of Radio Biafra was arrested last month and is still being held despite a court order to free him, his mainly ethnic Igbo supporters say.
The government says his station has been operating without a licence.
Biafran secessionists fought a three-year civil war that ended in 1970.
More than one million people lost their lives before the uprising was eventually quelled by the military.
Secessionist groups have attracted the support of many young people in the south-east in recent years.
The BBC's Abdussalam Ahmed in the southern-eastern city of Enugu says in reality they do not want a repeat of the civil war but are keen to draw the attention of the central government to some developmental challenges the region faces.
Africa Live: BBC news updates
Our correspondent says the peaceful protests started on Friday in the oil-rich Delta state and has since taken place in five other major cities in the region.
The demonstrators are mostly young men holding Biafra flags and banners with pictures of Mr Kanu, who is also a leader in the secessionist Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Tuesday's march is taking place in the city of Owerri in Imo state a day after the region's biggest market in the city of Aba was reportedly shut down by protesters.

Nnamdi Kanu has been in the custody of Nigeria's intelligence agency for more than three weeks
"We won't give up until our director Nnamdi Kanu is released," one protester told our reporter during a protest in Enugu.
The Biafra activists say a court in the capital, Abuja, ordered the release of Mr Kanu but authorities have refused to comply despite all the conditions set being met.
It is not clear where Radio Biafra is based but it mainly broadcasts to the Igbo-speaking south-east of the country.
The Nigerian government began jamming its signals in July but it is still available online and via mobile phones by a dialling a local number, our reporter says.
An IPOB leader, Uchemna Madu, told the BBC that the group was fighting against the "injustice and inequality" ethnic Igbos faced in Nigeria.
"We believe in Nigeria, we have businesses everywhere in the country but we are getting nothing apart from political and social marginalisation," he said.
"Our lives and properties are not secured, we want to live on our own."
The Nigerian authorities have always maintained that most of the issues the Biafra activists are complaining about are not unique to southern part of the country.

These Igbo people are just confused set of humans. Instead of forming a united front in Nigeria politics, they are busy fighting a lost course. How many of them supported Ojukwu when he vied for Presidency? APGA is supposed to be their regional party, how many seats do they have at the various houses of assembly? The people fronting this Biafra agenda are (just like any average Igbo man) after their own personal monetary gain. APC is to the West, why can't they make APGA a formidable party to reckon with, that way, their voices will be much louder.

Please with all due respect.... Ebonyi people are one of the most brilliant ones in the east of Nigeria... besides one should have given Ebonyi state same standard as to the northern states if that is the case..... You simple are trying to overlook the problem here .. .. what stops the state of Nigeria from adopting the confab resolution...

Hmmmmmm you no get sense! Just because his in captivity we are seeing a state pend its activities for a riot. Imagine what will happen if something happens to him. Firstly buhari will be a prime target for assassination. Not like BH with no sense at all, Igbos are crafty and hardworking and educated. Nigeria will be finished if he tries that.
tthis one wey u dey abuse me shaa.
Silencing in my words means he shud be tamed. That guy has a blueprint for tthings to unfold. Even up to his arrest at the airport, he purposely wanted it to be like that so that it will trigger the next phase.

The crafty son of the sun rising has forgotten that he's not more crafty than the devil. There are others who are faster than he is, his plans to dismember this country will be a failed plan just like his mentor(ojukwu) failed. Same way shekau failed and is on the run, the same way other persons with dark hearts(including the internationals expecting this ccountry to break)y will fail woefully.

My friend grow up. You don't need foreigner to come and invest before u can be successful besides, Nigeria's foundation is too strong to be dismountle by any mere mortal man. Am from Igbo but Biafra is never our solution, our character is our problem (enter any market near you, you will understand)

No bro. You are the one that fell into Bubu's wicked plan for the igbos. With all your protest and all, he's yet to even make a statement on the issue. What does that tell you?

if actually kanu set that plan, then he miscalculated big time. With the way this is going, i am sure that DSS do have concrete evidence to still detain kanu. And when the time's come, it would be presented and kanu would be sold to the world as a rebel. No one supports a rebel.

Buhari has not said anything because he implicated himself when he called SE/SS 5% and even considered giving BH amnesty


Have you noticed that ever since the Biafrans are accusing Buhari of being behind BH , they are now capturing BH kingpins

Why.?


IPOB has given UN enough evidence that implicates Buhari has being behind violence in Nigeria. cool

Buhari never called the SE/SS 5%. That was a political statement he made that was perfectly understood by the powers that be.

Really? Jonathan also captured BH kingpins in 6 weeks....very suspicious, that one.

IPOB has no evidence so far....instead the are showing the UN how unruly and uncivilized the recent movement for biafra is.
