IPOB threaten to lockdown South-East if Nnamdi Kanu is not released in August


The Indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB has threatened to lockdown the entire South-eastern region of Nigeria if Pro-secession leader, Nnamdi Kanu is not released on August 8th.

This was announced via a statement on Thursday signed by Chika Edoziem, IPOB head of directorate, the lockdown will begin on August 9 if Kanu is not freed by August 8.

“The directorate of state of the Indigenous People of Biafra is very much aware aware of the strategy of the Fulani Government of Nigeria to subject the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to Media Trial and to convict him in the public before giving that public conviction an official stamp of the compromised Nigerian Judicial system,” the statement reads.

“The global community knows that Self Determination is not a crime, the Nigerian government knows equally that Self Determination does not constitute any know offence stipulated in their constitution and therefore do not have any case against the leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB).”

“In recognition of the above fact and truth, the Directorate of State of IPOB, demands herewith an unconditional and immediate release of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on or before the 8th day of August 2021, failing which we shall commence a weekly LOCKDOWN OF BIAFRA land starting from 9th August, 2021.”

“For the avoidance of doubt this total lockdown of Biafra land will take place every Monday until our leader is released unconditionally. To all the governors in Biafraland and to all those who are complicit in the abduction of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra from Kenya to Nigeria, those of you who contributed money for the Fulani government of Nigeria to enable them kidnap our leader, pray fervently that his health is not endangered and nothing untoward happens to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu because then the land of Biafra shall not accommodate you and the Biafran people.”

“We affirm our readiness to do all that is necessary to secure the immediate release of our leader. It is completely unacceptable to the Indigenous People of Biafra to allow our leader to remain in the hands of the enemy up to October 2021.”
