‘I won’t release Kanu’: Our sacked members behind Buhari’s statement — IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement on not releasing Nnamdi Kanu was inspired by some of its sacked members of the proscribed group.

According to a statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, entitled “Buhari should not be deceived by fake information by sacked IPOB members”, the group said that its intelligence captured what transpired in a meeting between Mr President and the delegation that visited him in Aso Rock.

The statement reads; “We are the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“Our attention has been drawn to the statement by President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria that he will not release our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“We know that this position by Buhari after he had earlier promised a delegation of Igbo leaders that he would consider their appeal to consider a political solution for Kanu, was not unconnected with the visit by some foreign-based traitors and enemies of our struggle.

“Our intelligence captured what transpired in a meeting between these visitors and their host in Aso Rock.

“In the evil meeting the visitors who are anti-Biafra struggle concluded with the presidency that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu should not be released, claiming erroneously though, that IPOB and ESN has been defeated which is lies.

“However, we want to tell the Nigerian President and his visitors that he is going to make a mistake capable of consuming Nigeria should he fail to release Nnamdi Kanu because these bunch of anti-Biafra struggle he had meeting with were not giving him correct information about IPOB and ESN operatives.

“Why should the federal government of Nigeria be releasing bandits and terrorists wrecking havoc across the Nigeria but fail to release freedom seekers.

“Federal government should not be deceived by blacklegs and sacked members of the Movement who are feeding it with fake information about IPOB and ESN outfit for pecuniary interests.

“IPOB is too big for them to comprehend and they could not fantom IPOB and its operational strategy when they were in IPOB, we don’t want to mention their names. The people who visited him promised to help him crush IPOB and ESN, but unfortunately they cannot achieve that, actually they will be disappointed.

“Nevertheless, Federal Government should understand that Nnamdi Kanu is capable of defending himself in the court.

“The Nigerian government must be careful, neutral and allow the court to flow freely because they have no case against our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.  If they have case against him let them come straight to the court not from the backdoor.

“The President of  Nigeria should reconsider their stance concerning the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to avoid regret intact they should heed the voice of reason instead of holding an innocent man without any justifiable reason.

“IPOB is a well-recognised freedom fighting movement in the world and we will shock everyone in the country if we exhaust our patience because we listened to the elders and religious leaders and decided to allow peace reign.”
