IPOB Vows To Take Up Arms If FG Fails To Produce Nnamdi Kanu In Court
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has said it would resort to into taking up arms if the Nigerian government failed to produce Nnamdi Kanu in court, to continue his trial which commences today.
The group in a press release signed by its publicity secretary, Mr. Emma Powerful, stated that since the invasion on Kanu’s home on September 14 by the Nigerian Army, their leader has not been found.
The statement reads in part: “The bare faced lies of Ali and that of the Muhammadu 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: “It is therefore reasonably expected to conclude that the army is also lying about not having our leader, 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?”
