The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has described the periodic harassment of guarantors that stood surety for their leader, Nnamdi Kanu through Justice Binta Nyako’s court as a clever ploy to drum false narrative into the brains of Nigerians that their leader has jumped bail.

The group regretted that the government has only succeeded in convincing some gullible Nigerians that the deadly invasion of Kanu’s home by Nigerian soldiers should be swept under the carpet.

In a statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, the group said that intelligence report they gathered allegedly showed that Kanu is being held by the Nigerian Army and called for his release.

The statement said: “This Nigerian Government headed by Major General Muhammadu Buhari and his soldiers must release our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and others abducted alongside him last year, during the invasion of his compound, without further delay.

“Or they can await the catastrophic consequence their extra-judicial killing spree will cause in the nearest future.

“The leaked intelligence on the whereabouts of our leader, widely reported on all major news platforms, exposes where the Nigerian Government kept our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“We expect the same Nigerian Army that abducted him to charge him to court or release him to the British government. Despite the best efforts of Aso Rock propaganda unit, in connetion with some Igbo people to sweep the deadly army invasion of Isiama Afaraukwu on September 14, 2017 under the carpet, the timely intelligence information have nailed their lies to the mast for the world to see.”

IPOB said it is now clear that the orchestrated sightings of their leader in countries like Cameroon, Ghana, Malaysia, London, the Niger Delta creeks, and other weird and wonderful places were lies concocted and planted in mainstream Nigeria media to fool and confuse the public.

Continuing, IPOB said: “We, the global family of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) and its leadership wish to reiterate our call to United Nations, Britain, USA and other civilised nations to compel Nigeria to produce our leader. Nigerian Army abducted him when they raided his home with deadly intent.

“We know Nigeria is fast becoming a failed state where there are no civilised rules or behaviour.”

IPOB noted that there is no law in Nigeria, ECOWAS, AU or United Nations that empowered the Nigerian armed forces to kidnap and detain people at will without recourse to a court of law, warning that failure to release Kanu is an invitation to anarchy.

While saying that the leadership of IPOB cannot guarantee how long the simmering rage of the masses can be contained, the group called on persons with the habit of condoning the excessive human rights abuses of the APC government that he who sows will reap the whirlwind.

“In the words of one Sir Arthur ‘Bomber’ Harris, he who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind. When the inevitable breakdown of law and order starts, amateur historians and government propagandists should not seek to shift the blame to anybody else.

“They should be brave enough to acknowledge their handling of the brutality of this Buhari's regime was the catalyst for the inevitable violent demise of Nigeria.

“Nigerian Government and her security operatives must produce our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and others abducted with him last year. A near derelict naval vessel stationed in the high sea is not a court of law where guilt and innocence are determined, that remains the exclusive preserve of a court of law,” the statement added.
