Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has again demanded the unconditional release of their detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu or else they will ground Nigeria.
To ground Nigeria, IPOB has threatened that should their leader not be released soon, they will embark on a world-wide protest in over 100 countries of the world.
According to a statement signed by the IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, the organisation has set aside September 23, 2016 as the day their members all over the world will protest the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu.
The organisation attributed Nigeria’s present socio-economic woes to the arrest and detention of the Radio Biafra Director, Kanu and posited that the problems might continue so long as he remains incarcerated.
“The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, will leave no stone unturned come Friday 23rd September 2016 around major cities of the world, from Sydney Australia to Toronto Canada-from Moscow in Russia to Sao Paulo in Brazil-everywhere will reverberate to the theme of freedom.
“Our indefatigability will be demonstrated across the globe to let Nigeria understand that Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is indeed a global phenomenon unrivalled in the history of modern freedom fighting. In more than 100 countries and territories around the world, so that mankind will know who Nnamdi Kanu is. At the end of this exercise, countries will know that Nnamdi Kanu is more than any other African alive,” the statement reads.
It continues: “petitions and letters will be delivered to Presidents, Prime Ministers, Chancellors and Heads of State of every of the over 100 countries where we would be marching on the 23rd of September 2016.
“Across towns and cities of every nation on this God given earth, hardcore Biafrans, friends of Biafra, even enemies of Biafra in Aso Rock alike will feel the impact of this irrepressible human force yearning for freedom of their leader and their nation, Biafra. It will be frighteningly unprecedented because for the first time doubting Thomases will come face to face with the might of IPOB Worldwide that Nnamdi Kanu leads.
“It will be terrifying but it will be peaceful and a thing of joy to those who believe in freedom for the people of Biafra.
“Some in Abuja may find it scary, especially those at the corridors of powers that misguided Buhari to make the worst political mistake in the history of Nigeria, which is the arrest and illegal detention of our leader. History will record that the decline of Nigeria started with the kidnap of our own that fateful evening in Lagos. That was the day that Nigeria entered into a phase of irreversible decline that will inevitably end with its breakup and emergence of Biafra. There is nothing anybody can do about it because Chukwu Okike Abiama (God Almighty) that sent Nnamdi Kanu has taken over our mission and is literally directing it from haven.
“Famine, plague, economic depression, earthquakes, hunger and despair in Nigeria is here to stay because Buhari touched an anointed man and refused to release him despite several court orders to do so.
“IPOB will be compounding the economic misery further as order has been issued by the Directorate of State of IPOB that all activities in entire Biafraland will be brought to a halt in solidarity with our leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
“We are demanding for the release of our leader who the courts have determined time and time again that he is innocent. Governments of the world and their citizens will be made to see the administration for exactly what it is. A dictatorship run by a cabal of bumbling incompetent unrepentant religious zealots. It is in the interest of Buhari and the powers that be in Nigeria to release Nnamdi Kanu because the longer his illegal detention lasts the more innocent people will perish because God’s anger is upon the land already.
“It is now 11 agonising months since he was kidnapped for a fathom, baseless and unfounded allegation based on a witch hunt against the Biafrans by the federal government of Nigeria and security agents. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had been in illegal detention since last year with Buhari repeatedly refusing to obey the pronouncements of courts of competent jurisdiction to release an innocent man.
“IPOB Directorate of State, DOS, has therefore declared 23rd Sept 2016 as a day of worldwide street protests for all Biafrans in the diaspora and a sit at home protest for those in Biafraland.
“The political climate in Nigeria is already tensed and charged due to the current steps being taken by IPOB hierarchy home and abroad, to effect the release of our leader and restore Biafra. Nigerians are today traumatised by hunger, diseases, afflictions, suffering and untold hardship because of the ineptitude of the government in power who does not know how to run a democratic government,” the organisation states.
