Biafra: Sowore’s Detention Unacceptable – Nnamdi Kanu



The statement read: “Ohanaeze Ndigbo calls for calm and cautioned Igbos to desist from any form of protests and processions that will bring more catastrophe for Southeastern Nigeria. “The re-arrest of Nnamdi Kanu the leader of IPOB is the beginning of the end of violent agitations in southeastern Nigeria and a lesson to others that,” deviation from the nonviolent agitations and wasting of the innocent blood of the Igbo youths contradicted what Igbos are known for, and self-determination should not be used for purposes of fortune and fame-seeking. “Nnamdi Kanu’s refusal to adhere to the advice of Igbo leaders, Elders, and Political leaders is the outcome of what had befallen him, he made a lot of enemies especially those that would have saved him and Federal Government will never lose grip on him again. We don’t think that any Igbo leader will stick out his/her neck for him, his re-arrest will eventually bring peace and stability to the region and averted another civil war that was raging on. “Federal Government should handle the situation carefully because his large followers of Ipob wouldn’t resort to violent revolts, his trial should be strictly based on the laws of the land, they shouldn’t kill him because it will destabilize the entire country.

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has questioned the detention of Omoyele Sowore, the convener of Revolution Now movement by the Department of State Services (DSS).

Naija News reports that Kanu, who the director of Radio Biafra, made this on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, on Friday, August 9.

This online news platform recalls that Sowore, who is the publisher of New York-based Sahara Reporters, was arrested by the DSS last week Saturday over the “Revolution Now” protests.

On Thursday, a court ruled that Sowore should be detained by the secret police for 45 days.

Reacting to the ruling, Kanu, who will hold an interactive live broadcast on the matter tomorrow, Kanu said Sowore’s detention is unacceptable.

“Get ready for an interactive live Q&A broadcast with hardcore IPOB members from Nuremberg.

“Join via Radio Biafra FM, Radio Biafra App, satellite & online.

“The killing of Chimaobi & detention of Sowore is unacceptable.

“Date: Sat. Aug. 10, 2019. Time: 7 pm Biafraland Time,” the IPOB leader tweeted.

Meanwhile, Kanu is leading a group seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian government.
