Nnamdi Kanu: Why IPOB Should Lockdown South East For Two Weeks – Deji Adeyanju



Lekki Shooting Report: 'Bury You Head In Shame' - Adeyanju Knocks Lai Mohammed

Popular Nigerian activist, Deji Adeyanju, says the only way Nnamdi Kanu can be quickly released is the total compliance of the sit-at-home order by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Naija News reports that Kanu is facing an amended seven-count charge of terrorism and treasonable felony preferred against him by the Federal Government.

The IPOB leader has made three court appearances since June after security operatives brought him back from Kenya.

Kanu’s trial has now been adjourned until the 19th and 20th of January 2022, while the IPOB leader has been remanded in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).

Reacting to the adjournment of the Biafra agitator’s trial, Adeyanju said the lockdown of the South East for two weeks was one way to press for the quick release of Kanu.

The activist in the post on his social media account on Saturday wrote: “If the Sit-At-Home in the SE is 100% effective and everywhere is on lockdown for 2-weeks, Nnamdi Kanu will be released soon. Once something is paining them so much, press their neck more.”

Meanwhile, many mourners have been killed after unknown gunmen reportedly attacked Mbayatyo Mbater council world of Logo LGA of Benue State during a wake-keep.

It was gathered that the wake-keep was being held for one Mama Sule Achin Adigi on Saturday morning.

The attack by the gunmen in the community left scores dead and many others with various degrees of injuries.

Confirming the unfortunate attack in a post on his Facebook page, a resident of the community, Jiji Jack called on security agencies to urgently rescue “those that are still breathing”.

Among those reportedly killed was a popular commander of community volunteer guards in the Local Government, Atum.

It was gathered that the Sankera axis of the state, which comprises the Logo Local government, has been engulfed in killings from the deadly militia gang of the late Terwase Akwaza a.k.a Gana who was allegedly killed by the Nigerian military after he surrendered last year.
