The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Wednesday said it will lock down the South East region if its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was not brougth to court for trial on the slated October 21 appearance.
Alleging a lot by the Nigeria government and the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja not to produce Kanu to court on 21st October 2021 to start his case, the IPOB stated that “their wicked plan is to perpetually keep him behind bars without trial to see if they can demoralise him and Biafrans but they are late.”
According to IPOB Spokesperson, Emma Powerful, “if the federal government refuses to bring him to court in his next court appearance on October 21, 2021, the entire Biafra land will be on total lock down for one month. The federal government will know that they cannot take us for granted any more. Our peaceful disposition as a people should not be misconstrued as weakness.
“Nigeria cannot incarcerate our leader illegally and expect things to be normal again. If by October 21, Kanu is not brought to court, Nigeria will know that Kanu commands the unflinching loyalty of over 60 million Biafrans home and in Diaspora.
“By keeping our Leader out of circulation his health will be in jeopardy and we won’t allow this. The Fulani-controlled Nigeria Government must tell us why it will choose to disobey court orders and expect citizens to watch like conquered slaves. They are busy granting amnesty to terrorists and bandits killing their soldiers and citizens but keeping peaceful agitators in perpetual detention.
“Their plan is to suppress agitation and force everyone into submission but Biafrans won’t succumb to their intimidation. We are a different people. Their plan is to silence agitations for freedom as championed by Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Ighoho so that the Fulani from across Africa will overrun Nigeria. They can’t conquer Biafra land as they have conquered Hausa and other indigenous tribes in Nigeria.”
