The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful has warned the Federal Government to peacefully release their leader and Director of Radio Biafra; Nnamdi Kanu so that the group won’t cripple the country.
Kanu has been in detention since October 18, 2015 over his demand for an independent state for the Igbos which didn’t go down well with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Powerful has issued a statement that the group is prepared to cripple the nation if the Federal Government fails to release Kanu.
He also alleged that there are plans by the Federal Government’s, Department of State Service, DSS and three South East Governors and some National Assembly members to eliminate its leader and Director of Radio Biafra.
“We have endured; we will start the protest that will bring the Nigerian government to its knees. We stopped protests not out of cowardice and fear but, to show maturity and professionalism in what we are doing and to allow the Federal Government to release our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally,” the media secretary said.
“In line with his continued detention, we allowed the government to take decision and possibly release the man who did not commit any crime.The president’s advisers, who don’t want him to release our leader and those sycophants in his government waiting for his downfall are somewhere waiting to laugh at him and they will be the first to cast him…
“Biafrans are ready for what is to come; we are winning the battle,” Mr. Powerful added.
“The protest going on around the world is still in progress and we, in Biafraland, will not stop until our leader is released unconditionally,” he said.
