Nigerian activists stormed the Blair House in Washington DC on Monday to protest against Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari who was staying there ahead of his meeting with President Donald Trump.

The Blair House is a one-minute walk to the White House in Washington DC.

The pro-Biafra activists accused the Nigerian leader of having blood in his hands, after he ordered security forces to establish law and order in Southeastern Nigeria in 2016, following protests for independence.

Many activists were arrested, tortured and killed as they sought to break up from Nigeria and form the Republic of Biafra.

In Washington DC on Monday, because Mr. Buhari was unable, unwilling or afraid to come out to address the protesters or meet his supporters, two Nigerian governors tried to do damage control for him, after most of the protesters had left and the supporters of President Buhari were now more in number.

But it did not work. The few protesters left rejected him.
