IPOB has set a new day to unleash terror across the southeast and other states they claim as Biafra’s if its detained leader Nnamdi Kanu is not released by the federal government unconditionally.
In a statement on Wednesday by the Head Directorate of State, Mazi Chika Edoziem, IPOB said the federal government is only tormenting Kanu by adjourning his trial to October.
“The global community knows that self-determination is not a crime, the Nigerian government equally know that self-determination does not constitute any known offence stipulated in their constitution and therefore do not have any case against the leader of IPOB, Mazi Kanu,” the statement noted.
“In recognition of the above fact and truth, the Directorate of State of IPOB, demands herewith an unconditional and immediate release of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on or before the 8th day of August 2021, failing which we shall commence a weekly Lockdown of Biafra land starting from 9th August, 2021.
The group also asked governors, individuals and businessmen it earlier listed as collaborators with the Federal government to the abduction and extradition of its leader to pray fervently his health does not degenerate.
Among those it alleges as collaborators are Govs Hope Uzodima, Nyesome Wike, APGA guber candidate Charles Soludo, and others.
“Pray fervently that his health is not endangered and nothing untoward happens to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, because then the land of Biafra shall not accommodate you and the Biafra people.
“We affirm our reediness to do all that is necessary to secure the immediate release of our leader. It is completely unacceptable to IPOB to allow our leader to remain in the hands of the enemy up till October 2021.”
It emphasized that the total lockdown of Biafra land will take place every Monday until the federal government releases Kanu.
“This weekly lockdown is simply one of the measures we shall put in place to ensure that our leader is released hale and hearty.”
