The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has again called on the federal government to produce and charge its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to court.
The group in a press release signed by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, said that the constant harassment of Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe and others who stood surety for its leader was to portray Kanu as having jumped bail when he was being hidden by the federal government.
Addressing reports on the whereabouts of its leader, IPOB called on the federal government to stop lying about evidence of his whereabouts and produce Kanu to court rather than keeping him unduly.
It said the federal government should arrest Kanu with recently leaked intelligence on his whereabouts, contrary to claims by agents of the federal government who have severally linked him to be hiding in Ghana, London, Niger Delta Creeks and other places rather than simply mouthing his whereabouts, without evidence.
DAILY POST recalls that the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode on Monday claimed that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu is being kept on a Nigerian naval warship far off the coast of Bayelsa.
The release read in part, “Nigerian Army that abducted him(Kanu) should charge him to court or release him to the British government.
“It is now clear to all and sundry that the orchestrated sightings of our leader in Cameroon, Ghana, Niger Delta creeks, Malaysia, London and other weird and wonderful places were lies concocted and planted in mainstream Nigeria media to fool and confuse the public.
“We the global family of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) and it’s 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.
“The periodic harassment of those that stood surety for our leader through Justice Binta Nyako’s court is a clever ploy to drum the false narrative into the brains of Nigerians that our leader jumped bail when in actual fact it was the army that invaded his home and killed 28 people in the process.
“The government through its antics may have succeeded in convincing Nigerians that the deadly invasion of Kanu’s home by Nigerian soldiers that led to the killing of 28 persons does not matter and should be forgotten.
“We call President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately release Kanu and those abducted alongside with him or await the catastrophic consequences their extra-judicial killing spree will cause in the near future.”
