Failure To Release Nnamdi Kanu Before November 4th…. – IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has given the Federal government a November 4th deadline to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu or risk a week-long lockdown in the entire Biafra land.

The ultimatum was given in a statement by Media and Publicity Secretary for IPOB, Emma Powerful following the adjournment of Kanu’s court case to November 10th by the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The move, according to him, is to achieve a better purpose in the collective interest of Biafrans.

Failure To Release Nnamdi Kanu Before November 4th…. – IPOB

It reads: “Following the adjournment of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s court case to 10th of November 2021, by the Federal High Court Abuja, we the great movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), wish to inform Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom that IPOB will lock down Biafra land from 5th of November to 10th of November except Sunday, November 7th, a day our people worship the Almighty God, Chukwu Okike Abiama, if the Nigeria Government fails to release our leader unconditionally before 4th of November 2021.

“Our leader, onyendu Mazi Nnamdi MUST be released UNCONDITIONALLY on or before November 4, 2021 because he has not committed any offense known to any law.

“Failure to release our leader onyendu Mazi Nnamdi KANU on or before November 4, 2021, our one week Sit-At-Home begins on November 5, 2021 till November 10.

Emma Powerful in the statement accused the Federal government of not being sincere and on a mission to humiliate the IPOB leader.

“Although we quite understand the pains and adverse effects of this option on our people, we are compelled to take it to achieve a better purpose in the collective interest of Biafrans. We have taken time to analyse what transpired on October 21 when our Leader was arraigned in court and discovered that the federal government is not sincere and only wants to humiliate him and keep him perpetually in DSS custody to rot there.” The statement continued

“We all saw how lawyers, journalists, Igbo delegates and respected traditional rulers and other people who came from all around the world to witness his court case were restricted and denied access into the court premises by security agents who kept them outside under the scorching heat of the sun. What a humiliation and wickedness!

“We cannot accept that anymore. We can never allow our leader onyendu Mazi Nnamdi KANU to be tried SECRETLY and we can never also allow him to be tried under SHARIA law under any guise. NIGERIA must follow International laws in handling our leader.

“Mazi Nnamdi KANU is in DSS dungeon today because of his passion for Biafra independence, and we must sacrifice all we can to ensure that he regains his freedom. He has sacrificed so much for us all, so we must be prepared to sacrifice little for him.

“Unless the federal government releases him unconditionally before November 4, we shall sacrifice one week for him as a warning protest to convey to our oppressors that Nnamdi Kanu represents over 70 million Biafrans. He is innocent of all the charges preferred against him. As long as he is in detention our individual businesses do not matter so much because he is suffering for us all and we can’t abandon him.

“We seriously regret the inconveniences this may cause our people but it’s a necessary sacrifice we need to make until we have our full independence. Nobody resident in Biafra land is expected to flout this directive as doing so amounts to challenging the will of the people on the Biafra project.

“This one week sit-at-home is also to let our oppressors understand that we are not going to tolerate any plan to torment or abandon our leader in DSS custody through frivolous court adjournments. Any plans to subject him to trauma in detention through long adjournments while real terrorists and mass murderers are having fun across the country cannot fly. Nnamdi Kanu must be freed because he committed no crime. Asking for referendum so that Biafrans will decide whether or not they want to continue as part of Nigeria is no crime. He should not suffer for seeking justice for his people.

“We have been enslaved and caged enough by the Fulani controlled federal government of Nigeria and its allies. If we shut down Biafra land just for one week to secure our permanent freedom, it is worth the sacrifice. Everybody should brace up for this sacrifice.”

Nnamdi Kanu Sets To Be Bailed As Court Schedules For Emergency Hearing Tomorrow

The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu is scheduled for an emergency hearing tomorrow (Thursday) that could lead to his release on bail.

According to Sahara Reporter, it was learnt on Wednesday that the hearing could open the door for Kanu’s release on bail.

This was confirmed to SaharaReporters by the counsel for the Nigerian government in the matter.

It was also learnt from Nigerian government lawyers that the move is in response to the fervent appeals by Igbo leaders for the release of the pro-Biafra agitator.

“Nnamdi Kanu scheduled for an emergency hearing tomorrow that could lead to his release on bail.

“This is in response to Igbo elders’ request for his release,” one of the sources said on Wednesday.

President Muhammadu Buhari had said on Friday, November 19 that he would consider the unconditional release of the IPOB leader as sought by elder statesmen from the South-East.

Buhari had, however, added that such a request was a difficult option to weigh but assured that he would give it a thought.

Buhari said this while receiving a group under the aegis of Highly Respected Igbo Greats, led by First Republic parliamentarian and Minister of Aviation, Mbazulike Amaechi, at State House, Abuja, earlier in November.

Amaechi, a nonagenarian, had described the situation in the South-East as “painful and pathetic,” lamenting that businesses have collapsed, education crumbling, and fear everywhere.

IPOB holds prayer session for release of Nnamdi Kanu, orders optional sit-at-home

A pro-Biafra secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has called on its members, supporters and residents of the South-East region to have a prayer session on Tuesday (today) for the unconditional release of its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

The group urged that business and social activities should be shunned so that people could concentrate on the prayers for its helmsman who has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since June.

According to the statement signed by the Head of Directorate of Service (DOS), Chika Edoziem, the prayer should also address peace in the Igbo land and as well for the realisation of the Biafra nation.

This was contained in the statement by the media and publicity secretary of the group, Emma Powerful on Monday.

The statement said, “On this very day, we will make one solemn sacrifice. I am not instituting sit-at-home but all Biafrans should dedicate that day by shutting down all business activities, banks should not open.”

Explaining further on the modalities of the prayer session, Powerful told SaharaReporters that, “We didn’t declare anything like sit-at-home, our declaration is on prayers for our leader.”

The statement further read, “The prayers will be all over the world where all Biafrans reside.

“There is no sit-at-home because we understand that DSS agents masquerading as our members are now telling people that IPOB will use that day as sit-at-home, no we did not say so and will not, but our people will close their shops after the prayers they open their shops.

“We must stand in the open and make sure that the day light shines upon us, if it rains, let the rain fall upon us as we make this prayer, all pastors, evangelists, prophets, rabbis etc shall lead in this day prayer.

“The Odinana people must also gather and call for the spirits that guard the land and Chukwu Okike Abiama.

“Our kings will also come out to pray in the manner that our ancestors prayed in the old days. They will pray with a native kola that has four parts.

“Those who are the Ofor in Biafraland, must also come out and gather with the Odinana people also bring the Ofor and after the prayer, break the kola and throw the kola to our ancestors as the aka ji ọfọ shall raise the Ofor and hit it on the ground for our ancestors to come and fight for us.”
