Nnamdi Kanu: IPOB declares war on South-East leaders
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has declared war on all politicians and traditional rulers in the South-East region over the detention of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The Biafran separatist group stated that they would never know peace until Kanu regains freedom from the custody of the Department of States Services.
IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, gave the warning in a statement on Friday, adding that the South-East leaders either stand with the people or be counted among their enemies.
Powerful further stated that South-East leaders have been silence about Kanu’s ‘current travail’ while their northern counterparts are defending Fulani bandits and terrorists rampaging communities across the country.
The statement read in part, “All along, IPOB has been peaceful while our members are being abducted and killed by security agents. Now, they have abducted our leader and these so-called [Biafran] leaders are keeping sealed lips. It is either they stand with the people or be counted among our enemies.
“Our leader cannot languish in detention while these people will pretend that all is well. Their northern counterparts are shamelessly defending Fulani bandits and terrorists rampaging communities across the country yet these weaklings cannot speak out against the injustice against their own. Enough is enough! No more sitting on the fence. Everyone must declare his/her stance now.
“As long as our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, remains incarcerated in Abuja, all the politicians from ward level to federal level, including traditional rulers, stakeholders and religious leaders will never have peace till he comes out except they wake up now.”
