Aba women have risen again to proof their lioness mettle that shook the colonial masters, after the Aba Women’s riot in Aba province.
The first Aba women’s activism could be likened to the protest as it is targeted to achieve the same purpose and impact.
Historically, the Aba Women’s riots of 1929, was termed the Aba Women’s rebellion. This was touched off by the imposition of direct taxation and the introduction of new local courts and especially of warrant chiefs.”
The women this time , in the 21st Century at the tail end of 2022, held a peaceful protest in Aba, taking to the streets on Friday to protest the Federal Government’s non-compliance with the Court of Appeal order to release Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra.
Recall that the Court of Appeal, Abuja, had in it judgement, discharged the IPOD Leader in October, and also a Federal High Court in Umuahia, Abia state, ordered Federal Government to return Nnamdi Kanu to Kenya.
Which the Federal Government failed to obey any of the court orders.
Some of the banners held by the protesting Aba women read: ‘Buhari’s regime must obey court’s order,’ ‘ Obedience To The Rule of Law is the Essence of democracy is .’
They sang solidarity songs as they traversed the streets through major roads in the commercial city, including Okigwe Road, Osusu and Faulks Roads, leading into the Ariaria International Market, as they waved their banners and sticks.
Meanwhile, some of the women spoken to denied being sponsored.
