The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has described as suspicious and distasteful, the complacent attitude of South East and South South Governors as well as religious leaders over the fate of its detained leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
It said it was regrettable that the governors and religious leaders were yet to openly condemn Federal Government’s impunity since June 19 that Kanu was arrested in Kenya and brought back to Nigeria.
In a statement from its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB noted that the governors’ silence was a confirmation of its fears that the leaders might be part of Kanu’s ordeals.
It however commended efforts of few among them genuinely committed to the freedom of its leader, especially the pro-active movement South East National Assembly caucus for Kanu.
The statement reads in part: “We the global family of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu find loathsome and distasteful, the complacent attitude of South East and South South Govs and religious leaders over the fate of our Leader following his abduction and extra-ordinary rendition from Kenya to Nigeria.
“It’s baffling that since June 19th Kanu was abducted in Kenya and brought back to Nigeria in clear violation of international laws, the South East and South South governors and religious leaders are yet to openly condemn the act or take any action to register their displeasure with the impunity of the federal government of Nigeria.
“This criminal silence strongly confirms our earlier understanding and fears that these hypocritical leaders and traitors may be part of our leader’s ordeals. While leaders from other zones are courageously speaking up for their own, Governors and religious leaders from South East and South South have kept mute for reasons best known to them.
“We are watching and keeping records. When the chips are down we will know who is who,” Powerful said.
