Good day, Nigeria, welcome to Naija News roundup of Biafra/IPOB news headlines for today Friday, July 23rd, 2021.
Below is a roundup of top stories on Biafra, IPOB, ESN, Nnamdi Kanu and other pro-Biafra groups:
The leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, will be arraigned on Monday, July 26th, 2021.
In a statement on Friday, counsel to the IPOB leader, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, said his client would appear in court despite an annual vacation for judges.
Ejiofor added that he received a confirmation from the Federal High Court Abuja, that the hearing of Kanu’s case will proceed as scheduled.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced that it is shutting down its bank account domiciled in the United States.
Naija News reports that the pro-Biafra group made this known in a statement issued on Thursday by Chika Edoziem, IPOB head of the directorate.
The account which has been shut down served as a “worldwide” platform for members of IPOB to pay their monthly contributions.
Giving reasons for the closure, Edoziem said the account was closed after it received a report from the bank that some “yet to be identified persons” accused it of fraudulently operating the account.
The Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) has advised the Muhammadu Buhari-led government to go after bandit terrorists the same way it goes after activists across the country.
Speaking to newsmen in Kaduna on Thursday, SOKAPU’s National President, Jonathan Asake urged the government to deploy the same tactics adopted in the arrest of IPOB’s Nnamdi Kanu, and Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Igboho, in tackling the rampaging bandits in the North.
He alleged that over 100 natives had so far been killed in communities in the Zango-Kataf LGA while the government is pampering terrorists.
