Campaigners gather in London to protest the proscription of Nigeria as a terrorist state by the US Government after a security incident takes place during the holiday season on Christmas Day within the US when a Nigerian man by the name of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab makes an attempt on a passenger airliner inbound to Detroit, US.
The act of proscription has caused severe problems in the country and provides further evidence that the United States is now actively engaged in utilising fundamentalists worldwide to provide an environment to further its tactical and strategic reach globally.
Despite Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab being known to so-called US intelligence services, and despite his family alerting US authorities to the danger, he is allowed to board a flight to Detroit in the United States and continues until the point he attempts to ignite an explosive device onboard.
As a result, the US moves to proscribe Nigeria as a terrorist state placing severe burdens on the Nigerian people, already suffering chronic hardship through nepotism and corruption throughout its political system. The campaigners march from Parliament Square, along Whitehall and on towards the Nigerian High Commission a short distance away.
There, they force a high ranking official to appear from inside the High Commission to attempt to calm them. He largely fails and has to be protected from the assembled crowd.
