The Indigenous People of Biafra has given honour and appreciation to a southern group for their concern and calling for the immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu from prison custody.
The Southern Nigeria Peoples Assembly demonstrated some level of courage in their recent demand for the release of Nnamdi Kanu- this statement was made on Thursday, October 20 by IPOB.
A statement signed by Emma powerful:
“We praise them for the truth, the fathers and elderly statesmen who knows the real foundation of this contraption called Nigeria were calling for the release of Nnamdi Kanu and others who committed no crime against the government of Nigeria.”
“This proves that we still have fearless people and men of honour in the society,”
“It is abnormal that the federal government led by APC released the members of Boko haram the no fourth deadliest terrorist group in the world who killed, maimed, destroyed and the government still holding mazi Nnamdi Kanu and other members of IPOB who committed no crime against anybody in Nigeria.”
“Therefore, peaceful protest and civil disobedience is allowed in Nigeria and other countries and it is also enshrined into United Nations U.N and African Union A.U charters to pursue legitimately for self-determination which IPOB adopted.
“The leaders of the SNPA Chief Alex Ekwueme the former vice president, Chief Edwin E. Klark the leader of Niger Delta, Archishop Gbonigi, Chief Femi Okuronmu, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi and others who were in that meeting in Umuahia told president Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu and others who were granted unconditional release by the court of competent jurisdiction.
“We thank them for speaking the truth because the truth shall set you free according to the scriptures.
“However, the members of the indigenous people of Biafra IPOB worldwide still condemned the illegal detention of IPOB leader and other members who were detained in different prisons and security cells across the country.
“In view of this, we are calling on all media companies, NBA, judicial commission, human right organizations across the world, lovers of freedom, women groups and well-meaning Nigerians to join and speak out against the continued detention of IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, members of IPOB and incessant harassment and arrest against the nonviolent group and other Nigerians being detained in different prisons and security cells in the country,”
