The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) may have been compelled to take up arms in self defence in its struggle for a Biafra state should what they described as the continued killing of its unarmed and defenceless members continues.
Strong indications have emerged showing Nnamdi Kanu may be released and set free from detension during the next court sitting on February 10, 2017.
The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja fixed Feb. 10 to decide on whether or not it will dismiss the treasonable charges pressed against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In view of the response from the Nigerian Army that only 5 Biafran Protesters were killed as against the 150 mentioned by the Amnesty International, a human rights activist, Femi Falana (senior Advocate of Nigeria) has written an open letter to the President Muhammadu Buhari to set up an investigative panel to investigate the killings.
Falana wrote the letter on Monday while delivering a paper at the 2016 Law Week of the Jos branch of the Nigeria Bar Association, entitled: “War Against Corruption-Issues and Challenges Confronting the Judiciary.” pointing out that this was human rights matters and cant be swept under the carpet because lives of Nigerians were destroyed.
IPOB, the Indigenous People of Biafra, yesterday, did not hide their grievance against President Buhari and the founder of Facebook social media, Mark Elliot Zuckerberg for blocking their Facebook account. IPOB insists that the facebook founder may have been financially induced by the Buhari Government to do that, vanguard reports.
IPOB said that it was unbelievable that Zuckerberg, an Israelite, would work with President Buhari who is always bent on seeing that Biafra does not succeed.
They wonder why the Facebook founder will do that knowing they IPOB people share the same history with him and his country men.This was contained in a statement jointly signed by IPOB’s Spokespersons, Emma Nmezu and Dr Clifford Chukwuemeka Iroanya yesterday.
As the embattled and detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu mark one year of being under detention, he has called on his fellow Biafrans to keep up the struggle should he die in detention.
Nnamdi Kanu said he is ready to die for the course of Biafra, and urged his brethren not to give up or be discouraged. Last Friday, it was one year after he was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) and thrown into detention.
Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled Radio Biafra Director and leader of the Independent People of Biafra(IPOB) has spoken ones again from the detention airing his mind on his struggle.
Kanu said his quest to liberate the people of Biafra is not his personal wish but God’s decision and instruction.
He said it is the will of the almighty God which no man can stop. He made this known from prison detention on July 25th, claiming it wasn’t his personal intention to bring about a stir in the agitation but the will of God.
Biafra agitators may soon hiss a sigh of relief knowing their case is about to be handled by International Criminal Court -ICC.
