The Media and Publicity Secretary of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in a recent statement warned against arresting its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, the second time, saying that it will only draw attention of world powers to the plight of the Igbos in the South-East Nigeria.
IPOB noted that although Kanu is not afraid of going to prison again, but arresting him would draw attention of the international community to the South-East and that would mean the attainment of Biafra is near.
Mr. Power claimed that the call for Kanu’s re-arrest was because of the sit at home order given by the IPOB leader which was complied with by the Igbos.
“Arresting Kanu again cannot stop the agitation, rather it will be a very big mistake on the side of federal government and its security operatives because when the security operatives arrested him on his arrival from London in his hotel room in Lagos, it sparked protests and rallies across the world.
“Arresting him again will draw the attention of the world leaders and other relevant organisations closer to the quest for Biafra independence.
“Therefore, we don’t give a damn, whether they arrest him or not. We don’t bother. Keeping Kanu in or out of Nigeria prison means nothing to us because the restoration effort continues unabated. Having Kanu in prison is always good for the struggle to restore Biafra.”
“IPOB and its leadership are not even deterred by any threat from any corner because what we are doing is inalienable rights to all the indigenous people around the world and it is enshrined in the United Nations charter.”
