IPOB To Publish Names Of Igbo Politicians Sabotaging Kanu’s Release


By Johnson Nwankwo

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said it will make public Igbo politicians sabotaging the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from detention.

Kanu is the IPOB leader, and has been in the custody of the Department of State Services in Abuja since 2021 after being renditioned from Kenya to Nigeria by Nigeria’s secret police. He is charged with terrorism.

South-East Governors’ Forum held a meeting in Enugu and resolved to meet President Bola Tinubu for political solutions to Kanu’s case. Some senators of the region reportedly met with the attorney general of the federal for the same goal of freeing Kanu.

However, IPOB, in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, warned politicians trying to sabotage Kanu’s release to quickly retrace their steps.

According to Powerful, there were efforts by some politicians to frustrate the effort to release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu “whom Appeal Court has discharged and acquitted on 13th October 2022”. He advised those behind such moves to retrace their steps, adding that “we know of their secret meetings and discussions against MNK”.

He continued, “If they continue with their sabotage, their names will be made public soon. Also, some of the political jobbers in the South-East Region working against the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu should know that we are following the activities closely.”

He alleged that such individuals were holding secret meetings with South-East governors to frustrate the clarion call of the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, “who incidentally is the only political prisoner in Nigeria currently”.

Quoting him, “We warn those sabotaging the unconditional release of our leader to stop provoking IPOB. The saboteurs should know that nothing happens in the South-East Region without IPOB getting the intel ahead of time. Those Igbos involved in this dastardly act to frustrate the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu should retrace their steps quickly.

“IPOB-ESN is not begging them to stop, but they should be ready for the consequences of their oppositional actions.”
