The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has demanded the immediate release of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from DSS custody in the Federal capital, Abuja, Nigeria.
The group said the demand is on the heels of terrorists threat and tlhe sudden closure of all the Government public schools operating in in the city.
IPOB reminded Nigeria and her Security Agencies that the world through UN Right group has mandated for unconditional release of Kanu and the appropriate compensation paid to him without delay because he commited no crime against Nigeria and her sovereignty.
A statement by IPOB’s Media and Publucity Secretary, Emma Powerful and made available to journalists read in part, “UN Group warned that if anything untoward happens to Kanu, it will be disastrous to Nigeria, and IPOB is ready to carry this order to the letter.
“We are advising government of Nigeria to urgently release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally”,
” IPOB is neither bothered nor interested in the plan of the terrorists to overrun the Nigeria government which we have rejected, our concern is the safety of our leader.
“We therefore, demand that the Nigeria government must release the leader of IPOB now because he committed no crime as enunciated by the UN Right group.
“As Nigeria is closing schools, businesses, and other activities because of fulani terrorists threat to attack Abuja, it clearly shows that Abuja is no longer safe for people to live. Hence our unequivocal demand for the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi KANU before anything happens to him. We demand prompt and complete implementation of the UN directives concerning Mazi Nnamdi KANU.
“Binta Nyako and her jurists should know that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s life is in danger while being detained in DSS custody Abuja. Again, she should know that these terrorists attacked Nigeria Defence Academy (NDA) Kaduna, War Training College Jaji in Kaduna, Kuje Prisons Abuja and other security facilities in Abuja, therefore DSS facility is not immune to attack by these state sponsored terrorists.”
“We pity those Igbo leaders and politicians who commit crimes in Igboland and run to Abuja thinking that nothing will happen, the narratives have changed and they will run to Lagos but Lagos will not be safe for them, then they will come back home soon and answer questions unless they run to abroad.
“One day all the evil and killer politicians from BIAFRA land will be held to account, and only the good ones will walk as free men and women.
This is opportunity to make peace with your people because danger is approaching to Nigeria soon, the country has collapsed.”
