Kanu’s arrest: IPOB blasts Kenya’s president, Kenyatta for collaborating with Nigeria
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has lambasted President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya over the arrest and extradition of its Supreme Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Knau.
The separatist group accused Kenyatta of expressing affection for killer Fulani herdsmen by collaborating with Nigerian security agencies to arrest Kanu.
IPOB’s Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said it is shameful that Kenyatta decided to partner with a ‘terror-friendly government like Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari’.
In the statement issued by Powerful, the group said “We the global movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by our great and indomitable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, express our disappointment with President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya and his Government over his role in the abduction of our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his subsequent smuggling into Nigeria by the wicked Nigeria security agents,” the statement read.
“We are still at shock why a President like Uhuru Kenyatta would stoop so low to collude with a terror-friendly government like Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari to abduct and dehumanise our Leader for doing nothing other than demanding the freedom of Biafrans from the Nigeria bondage.
“Based on our preliminary findings, President Uhuru Kenyatta was very instrumental to the abduction of our leader in Kenya.
“The treacherous action of Uhuru Kenyatta against Nnamdi Kanu and Biafrans at large is a clear violation of the 1949 Geneva Convention, and United Nations Code.
“We still don’t understand why Uhuru Kenyatta and some corrupt officials of his Government would prefer to betray Nnamdi Kanu and Biafrans? Is it because of Nigeria’s oil money? Is it because of the paltry N100 million bounty placed on Kanu’s head by some Northern charlatans? Why will President Uhuru Kenyatta sell our leader Mazi Nnamdi to the evil hands of Nigerian government?
“It is so shameful that Uhuru Kenyatta would belittle himself in a manner he has just done. By this wickedness and grievous sin, Uhuru Kenyatta has demonstrated his affection for the murderous Fulani terrorists ravaging the entire Nigeria, killing and maiming indigenous people in their ancestral lands.”
IPOB also vowed to drag Uhuru before the International Criminal Court, ICC, in The Hague over Kanu’s capture.
The statement added: “Uhuru Kenyatta and his partners in crime should get ready to meet us at the International Criminal Court, ICC. This act of terror against our Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, a NATO citizen, British citizen with British International Passport and member of other international organizations will not go unpunished.
“As we continue with our investigations into this crime with a view to unmasking all the collaborators, we announce the following interim actions until further notice:
“We call on all Biafrans both home and in the diaspora to boycott travels with Kenya Airlines; to immediately stop patronising any product made in Kenya; and to boycott any business dealings with Kenyans. We cannot be relating friendly with anyone collaborating with our oppressors to keep us in perpetual slavery!”
