Udeh Chiamaka, the model who represented Nigeria at the Miss Africa Russia pageant, on Sunday walked the runway with what appeared to be a blood-stained Nigerian flag.
The Miss Africa Russia pageant was held in Moscow, with the ceremony uniting people of various nationalities.
The photo of the red-stained flag had gained prominence last year as a symbolism of bloodshed during the shooting of #EndSARS protesters by the country’s army in Lekki, Lagos. Citizens also used it to portray the insecurity situation in the country.
In the now-viral video, Udeh is seen walking up the stage while holding up the red-stained Nigerian flag.

The model won’t be the first to pull such a demonstration in the background of the insecurity situation in the country.
Bovi, Nigerian comedian, had similarly appeared at The Headies 2021 with a blood-stained #EndSARS-themed outfit.
This had generated a series of conversations as to whether or not the comedian violated the National Flag Act.
