The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has reacted to the arrest of the son-in-law of the former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, Uche Nwosu.
Kanu claimed that the former governorship candidate was arrested by policemen attached to the Government House on church premises.
The IPOB leader in a statement released through his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, noted that the development has vindicated IPOB, and has shown that atrocities perpetrated in Imo State are the handiwork of politicians.
The counsel to Kanu, further stated that his client stated that more criminal gangs ravaging the South-East would be exposed and shamed.
Ejiofor said, “I undertook our routine visit to Onyendu today. I did so exclusively. In the course of my visit, both of us engaged in fruitful discussions that substantially bothered on the legal strategy we would deploy at the next court sitting on the 18th of January, 2022.
“I also briefed Onyendu on a number of subsidiaries but very important issues. He consistently laid emphasis on discipline and obedience to the hierarchy of command and maintained that his position on this is definite and unshifting.
“Further, he made the point, for the consumption of millions of his supporters, that the recent development in Imo State signifies a clear message to UMUCHINEKE that ChukwuOkike Abiama predominates in all human affairs and would continue to rule in the affairs of men.
“The recent stunning revelation in Imo State vindicates Onyendu entirely. He has long before now made the point that the chilling atrocities perpetrated in Imo State by agents of darkness are the handiwork of politicians, who are their mastermind and paymasters. Onyendu has therefore exhorted UMUCHINEKE and his followers, in general, to remain calm, law-abiding, focused and peaceful in all their undertakings. He predicted that many more criminal gangs ravaging our land will sooner than later gravitate to their deserving and ignoble end.
“He was also emphatic on the need for UMUCHINEKE to be circumspect in their words and actions.
“When they actualise their evil plan in any instance, they knowingly instigate false propaganda and lay blame for what they have done on the doorstep of members of IPOB. Onyendu has today cursed the persons concerned and has declared that eternal perdition will be their reward.
“The new year offers us renewed hope in ChukwuOkike Abiama. It will herald divine grace and favour of unimaginable proportions. Abiding grace and miraculous happenings will punctuate it. Sorrow and sighing shall take a sudden and unremitting flight. ChukwuOkike Abiama being and abiding with us, we shall reap and appropriate beneficially comprehensive victory on all sides.”
