ENUGU – INDIGENOUS Peoples of Biafra, IPOB has denounced reports circulating on social media that it’s Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was on the run amid moves by the Federal Government to re-arrest him following an alleged violation of his bail conditions.
In a press release issued by the spokesman of the group, Emma Powerful, the group dismissed the rumor as a “laughable fabrication designed to demystify our leader(Nnamdi Kanu)”.
“This wicked lie and malicious fabrication is the work of the enemies of Biafra, who enjoy their perfect slave status and will remain servants to Arewa North all their lives.”
“Their cowardice is such that even when their mothers are literally being raped by Fulani herdsmen on a daily basis before their eyes, rather than fight off the attackers, they help the Fulani rapists in pinning their own mother to the ground while she is brutally assaulted.”
“These shameless individuals have allowed themselves to be used to advance the mission of the Caliphate in Biafraland which is total submission to Hausa Fulani Islamic hegemonic domination,” the statement read.
The group, in the statement, insisted that Nnamdi Kanu was not ready to go on exile no matter the level of threats issued by the federal government noting that IPOB remains the most vibrant and intelligent mass movement in the world.
“Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has made it abundantly clear to all and sundry that he is NOT going on exile as a result of these childish threats.”
“IPOB is till date the most vibrant, indomitable and intelligent mass movement in the world over.”
“IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu cannot be intimidated by anybody or group no matter how highly placed they think of themselves. Our mission is to restore Biafra and nothing under the sun can stop us.”
The statement also revealed that the agitation for state of Biafra by Nnamdi Kanu shall not stop until a referendum is conducted on a democratic manner.
“Until the Nigeria Government fix a date for referendum to settle the issue of Biafra in a civilised and democratic manner, this raging agitation led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will continue.”
With the situation on ground today concerning Biafra freedom, we pity the APC Party and Nigerian Government led by Major General Muhammadu Buhari for choosing the uncivilised path of brute force and intimidation as opposed to referendum.”
“We urge every Biafran, no matter where you are, to remain resolute and strong because Biafra is tantalisingly closer than we expect. It is crystal clear that IPOB led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is ordained by (Chukwu Okike Abiama) God Almighty which no man can stop. We are winning this battle,” the statement concluded.
