“It Is Buhari Who Will Be Arrested And Locked Up Not Nnamdi Kanu” IPOB Boasts

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned the Arewa Consultative Forum over their attack on the chairman of Ohaneze Ndigbo John Nnia Nwodo for defending the group.

The group also condemned Paul Unongo, the chairman of the Northern Elders Forum, for condemning the activities of the IPOB. The IPOB in a statement signed by its publicity secretary Emma Powerful said its leader, Nnamdi Kanu has not committed any crime to warrant his arrest.

Powerful said: “If Nigeria ever had a case against our leader, why have the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) not commenced the trial since October 2015 when our leader was first arrested?

Instead the Arewa North thought they could intimidate this present Ohaneze Ndigbo as they did to previous executives, into allowing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to be arrested.”

IPOB said that Kanu has succeeded in breaking the Arewa-born to rule mentality since his agitation for Biafra began. “People are no longer intimidated by the disproportionate number of Arewa sons in the military and other armed forces who are in essence the foot soldiers of the Caliphate and not Nigeria.

The idea of wanting to use baseless trumped up charges to justify the extra judicial detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be resisted by all men and women of good conscience,” Powerful added.

He further said that President Muhammadu Buhari should be arrested for disobeying court orders on Kanu. He said: “After all it was Buhari himself that disobeyed court order after court order directing the unconditional release of the our leader in 2015.

If anyone deserves to be arrested, it is Buhari.”
