The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have warned the Nigerian government to bring Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to court on the 21st of October or be ready to face a severe 30 days lockdown across Biafraland.
The DSS failed to present the IPOB supreme leader to court on the scheduled date for the continuation of his court hearing which was scheduled on the 26th of July 2021. This action brought about grievances as many of Kanu’s followers thought he was killed by the Nigerian government.
However, the fear for the alleged Kanu’s death was swept off after his lead counsel, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor announced to his teaming followers that Kanu was hale and hearty.
The sitting judge, Nyako mandated members of the Department of State Security (DSS) to ensure that Kanu is brought to court on the 21st of October.
The leadership of IPOB has therefore declared through a memo signed by the group’s Emma Powerful, Secretary to the group on Media and Publicity that if the proscribed leader of IPOB fails to appear in court shall cause a severe effect on the Biafran soil.
They warned that if Mazi Nnamdi Kanu doesn’t appear in court on the 21st of October as scheduled by the judge, the whole of Biafraland shall be on a 30 days total lockdown.
The leaders of the Southeast and South-south are however adjusting themselves on what to do to ensure that the proposed 30 days lockdown doesn’t come to fruition.
It will be a big blow to the economy of the region if the group imposed the 30 days lockdown.
Recent results of lockdowns observed in Biafraland had shown enough reasons to the said leaders of the region that leadership of the region has changed tables.
The people of Eastern Nigeria now listen to the voice of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB because they believe that IPOB has the light to freedom.
Every effort should be made to ensure that Kanu appears in court and gets fair judicial treatment.
30 days lockdown warning by IPOB
“The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great prophet and liberator of our time, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the plot by Nigeria government and her DSS in Abuja not to produce our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to court on 21st October 2021, the date he is due to appear in court to start his case. The federal government of Nigeria has again perfected plans not to bring him to court on that day”.
“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”.
“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”
