Buhari Govt Wants Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday Igboho ‘Out Of Circulation’ – IPOB



The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has stated that the federal government feels threatened by it’s leader Nnamdi Kanu and Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Igboho.

In a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, the group accused the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration of trying to take the duo out of circulation.

The pro-Biafra group urged self-determination from other ethnic nationalities to join its one-month sit-at-home protest if the Department of State Services, DSS, refuses to produce Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in court this month.

The statement read in part, “Following our earlier declaration of one-month lockdown of Biafra land should the Nigeria Government fail to bring our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to the court on October 21, we, the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra request our brothers and sisters in Oduduwa republic and Middle Belt, including Igbo and Biafra businessmen and women, traders who are doing business outside Biafra land, to shut down their businesses to demonstrate our resolve for the emergence of our new nation, Biafra, and support for our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and others who are facing a similar fate with us to join us in sympathy protest.

“We need to put our differences behind us and rise as one people to defend our ancestral land against our common enemy and show Fulani and their cohorts that Nigeria belongs to all of us and any Biafra man residents in Kano, Kaduna, Jos, Jigawa, and other parts of North and western parts of Nigeria must shut down their shops in support of this fight for freedom and release of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“We cannot afford to abandon him at this point after sacrificing so much for us all. We must not fail to understand that the Federal Government dread Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho; two heroes of freedom, and that is why it wants to keep them out of circulation. But we must resist the evil plot.”
