A man has stirred reactions on social media after setting his car on fire to celebrate the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Naija News had earlier reported that the Court of Appeal on Thursday, struck out charges levelled against Nnamdi Kanu by the Federal Government.
The Court of Appeal ruled that the Federal Government breached all local and international laws in the forceful rendition of Kanu to Nigeria, thereby making the terrorism charges against him incompetent and unlawful.
Reacting to the development, an excited man who had earlier vowed to burn his car if the court ordered Kanu’s release, fulfilled the promise.
The video that surfaced online captured a burning car with onlookers gathered.
The incident took place at the Onitsha South Mass Transit Bus Park opposite Holy Ghost Cathedral in Enugu State.
The video caused a stir amongst some Nigerians on social media who queried reasons why he could not sell the car and used the money to feed hungry women and children in his community.
