The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has broken it’s silence on the arrest of it’s fugitive leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
NewsWireNGR had earlier reported that the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, announced the arrest of the IPOB leader on Tuesday afternoon.
In a statement shared with TheCable on Wednesday, Emma Powerful, the group’s spokesman, asked IPOB members to “mobilise” and attend the court hearing on July 26 when Kanu’s trial will continue.
“IPOB will not relent in the pursuit of Biafra freedom. We have crossed the Rubicon in our struggle for the restoration of Biafran Sovereignty. There is no going back no matter the level of intimidation by our oppressors,” he added.
Kanu founded IPOB in 2014 and wants to create an independent state for the people of old Eastern Region of Nigeria through an independent referendum.
