#BiafraExit: So…. is this coordinated inauthentic behavior on Twitter?

A significant number of Twitter accounts sharing either identical (or very similar content) use this particular image of “Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu” with the phrase “Prisoner of Conscience”
Twitter accounts that use an image of Nigerian political leader Nnamdi Kanu as their profile picture.
@BiafraSunny1, @emenikeMaduabu1, @Amumigwe1, @AsaaEgwu — all accounts using the same identical profile picture.
@lucky_ufere, @truthwillalwayp, @Chibuik75754581, @onuorahralph — additional accounts using the same profile picture of Nnamdi Kanu.
@Solu_City, @Luna38633525, @IzuchiukwuO — yet more Twitter accounts that post very similar content about conflict in Nigeria.
