Expect month-long lockdown if … – IPOB
By Phil Okose Onitsha
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) warned yesterday that there would be a one-month lockdown if Nnamdi Kanu is not brought to court on October 21, 2021.
Sounding the note of warning, the IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, stated that “there is a plot by Nigeria government and her DSS in Abuja not to produce our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in court on 21st October 2021, the date he is due to appear in court to start his case. The federal government of Nigeria has again perfected plans not tobring him to court on that day.”
“Their wicked plan is to perpetually keep him behind bars without trial to see if they can demoralise him and Biafrans; but they are late.
If the federal government refuses to bring him to court in his next court appearance on October 21, 2021, the entire Biafra land will be on total lockdown for one month. The federal government will know that they cannot take us for granted anymore.”
Powerful went on “Our peaceful disposition, as a people, should not be misconstrued as weakness. Nigeria cannot incarcerate our leader illegally and expect things to be normal again. If, by October 21, Kanu is not brought to court, Nigeria will know that Kanu commands the unflinching loyalty of over 60 million Biafrans home and in Diaspora.”
“By keeping our leader out of circulation his health will be in jeopardy and we won’t allow this. The Nigeria government must tell us why it will choose to disobey court orders and
expect citizens to watch like conquered slaves. They are busy granting amnesty to terrorists and bandits killing their soldiers and citizens, but keeping peaceful agitators in perpetual detention.”
“Their plan is to suppress agitation and force everyone into submission but Biafrans won’t succumb to their intimidation. We are a different people. Their plan is to silence agitations for freedom as championed by Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Ighoho so that the Fulani from across Africa will overrun Nigeria. They can’t conquer Biafra land as they have conquered Hausa and other indigenous tribes in Nigeria.”
