ENUGU—The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has warned MEND and it’s agents to leave Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB alone and face their business with the Federal Government. This was contained in a statement signed by IPOB’s Publicity and Media Aide, Comrade Emma Powerful yesterday.
The statement read; “We are not joining issues with Gbomo Jomo and MEND again because IPOB is a mass movement that have branches and intellectuals all over the world. “The leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu with all due respect is bigger and greater than MKO Abiola .So, the comparison doesn’t arise.
“Nnamdi Kanu is not seeking rulership of Nigeria like Abiola that could reasonably bring him into conflict with entrenched Northern interest whose sole desire is to continue ruling Nigeria.
“What is baffling and a unique problem in Africa is the inability of conscientious people to rise up and insist on the truth. “Why should the world not compel President Muhammadu Buhari to obey a simple court order in a country that claims to know the meaning of the rule of the law?
“Should we not be clamouring for adherence to the rule of law rather than encouraging dictatorship by insisting that there must be some kind of rejection of ones identity in order to be spared. “Nigerians should know better that executive powers lie with Buhari but not judicial or legislative.
“The combined power of the two arms- Judiciary and Legislature is definitely more than that of the presidency. “Instead of our leader to renounce Biafra, he would renounce Nigeria publicly, mark our words. We are not after securing bail for our leader; we are after his freedom and freedom for the people of Biafra.
“Even a child born today knows that any attempt to tamper with Nnamdi Kanu’s life will bring calamity too horrible to imagine in Nigeria.
“For the sake of clarity, we must state that Abacha did not kill Abiola because they both were killed at the same time. So,anybody who comes from anywhere to kill our leader must also make sure they kill Buhari too in order to have the MKO Abiola scenario replicated.”
