-IPOB alleges Nigerian Soldiers of raiding Nnamdi Kanu’s home without a warrant.
Proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had on Monday warned that it would revolt against the Federal Government of President Muhammadu Buhari if it failed to produce the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, dead or alive.
The banned group , gave an ultimatum of Tuesday (today) stating that they must see their leader in the court premises.
Kanu is facing a five-count charge bordering on treason. He was granted bail in April, with an directive to be in court to face his trial before Justice Binta Nyako on October 17.
The threat was disclosed in a statement released on Monday, in Awka, Anambra state, by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful.
The statement read in part, “The barefaced lies of the Nigerian Defence Minister, General Mansur Dan Ali, and that of the Buhari regime against our leader and organisation is beginning to unravel before the eyes of the world.
“By admitting publicly that soldiers were sent to Isiama Afaraukwu to look for our leader without any order or warrant from a court of law confirms the contempt in which the Nigerian government holds the rule of law and their judicial process.
“It is therefore incumbent upon civilised nations of the world and organisations alike to ask the APC-led Nigerian government why they decided to send armed soldiers to invade Kanu’s residence.”
The group also said, “One outcome is guaranteed in all this, should Nigeria not produce our leader in court on the 17th of October 2017, there will be inevitable confrontation on a scale the human mind cannot imagine, at a time and place of our choosing.”
