The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned the federal government not to provoke it into taking up arms by continually keeping its leader, Nnamdi Kanu. It warned that Kanu must be brought to court Tuesday dead or alive.
The group added that its anger would be felt if the Nigerian government failed to produce Kanu in court, dead or alive to continue his trial.
Read the group press release signed by its Publicity Secretary, Mr Emma Powerful;
“The bare faced lies of the Nigerian Defence Minister General Mansur Dan Ali and that of the Buhari regime against our leader and organisation is beginning to unravel before the eyes of the world. By admitting publicly that soldiers were sent to Isiama Afaraukwu to look for our leader without any order or warrant from a court of law confirms the contempt in which Nigerian government holds the rule of law and their judicial process.
“It is therefore incumbent upon civilised nations of the world and organisations alike to ask the APC led Nigerian government why they decided to send armed soldiers to invade Kanu’s residence.”
The group spoke further that, “It is therefore reasonably expected to conclude that the army is also lying about not having our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in their custody.
“Is the world waiting for Biafrans to pick up arms to demand for the release of the body of their leader before they know IPOB is serious about ascertaining what the Nigerian government did with him?”
“One outcome is guaranteed in all this, should Nigeria not produce our leader in court on the 17th of October 2017, there will be inevitable confrontation on a scale the human mind cannot imagine, at a time and place of our choosing. By nature we are peace loving people, Nigeria should stop provoking us into armed conflict. They should bring our leader to court.” Continue from Dailypost
