Nothing Should Happen to our Leader, IPOB Warns Federal Government

The Indigenous People of Biafra has finally broken their silence on the re-arrest of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu barely 24 hours after his arrest was made public.

The organization claimed that Nnamdi Kanu was kidnapped by the government agents; and they promised to expose details of the abduction later. All these were contained in a statement signed by Emma Powerful, the spokesperson for IPOB where he also mentioned that IPOB would not be intimidated into backing out of the struggle, despite Kanu’s arrest.

The statement reads as follows: “We the global movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) confirm the abduction of our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian Government and her security operatives. We shall expose details of his abduction later.

“Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is presently in the custody of the Nigeria Government. This evil crime of kidnapping was masterminded by the Federal Government in collaboration with all those that view IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as stumbling block against their bid to hold Biafra in perpetual slavery.

“We, therefore, enjoin every IPOB member both at home and in the Diaspora and all Biafrans to remain calm because this is not the end of the road. Our Leader’s next court appearance is July 26, 2021 and Biafrans should mobilize and attend the court hearing.

“IPOB will not relent in the pursuit of Biafra freedom. We have crossed the Rubicon in our struggle for the restoration of Biafran Sovereignty. There is no going back no matter the level of intimidation by our oppressors.

“Our Leader can never be coerced into abandoning the struggle for Biafra restoration irrespective of the circumstance. At this very challenging moment in the history of our march to freedom, all IPOB family members must stand firm and resolute behind our selfless leader. We stand by him and the God of Heavens in whom we trust and rest our confidence shall not let us down. We shall triumph!

“We remind the Nigeria government and her security agencies that our Leader deserves justice and fair hearing. We also want to state unequivocally, that no harm should befall our leader. Should anything untoward happen to him, Federal Government will be held accountable for it.

“We are watching closely and all our intelligence units, are following up on the developments. The international community should not be quiet over the atrocities of the Federal Government against Biafrans. They must rise in defense of justice now!”
