IPOB Threatens to Destroy Nigeria if Kanu Dies in Jail

…Warns MEND to Stay Clear of Kanu

By Emma Powerful

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has threatened to unleash terror on Nigeria incomparable to what transpired at Somalia should anything happens to its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

According to IPOB, Somalia would even be a paradise compared to what will happen in Nigeria if some Nigerians with vested interest in the impoverishment of the masses think they know the might of Nnamdi Kanu.

It also boasted that “Even a child born today knows that any attempt to tamper with Nnamdi Kanu's life will bring the sort of calamity too horrible to imagine in Nigeria. For sake of clarity we must state that Abacha did not kill Abiola because they both were killed at roughly the same time. So for anybody to come from anywhere to kill our leader must also make sure they kill Buhari too in order to have the MKO Abiola scenario replicated.”

Speaking through a press statement made available to us by the Media and Publicity Secretary of the pro-Biafra group, Comrade Emma Powerful, IPOB further maintained that its leader will rather renounce Nigeria publicly instead of denouncing Biafra.

The IPOB statement also added that it was not asking for Kanu’s bail, but are demanding for his immediate unconditional release as ordered by the Federal High Court of Abuja, and for freedom for the people of Biafra.

Reacting to recent comment made against it by the Movement for Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND), IPOB warned MEND to stay clear of Kanu, who they also claimed to be bigger and greater than MKO Abiola hence needless to be compared.

Similarly, IPOB, while insisting that it will never join issues with Gbomo Jomo, the leader of MEND again, restated that it (IPOB) remains a mass movement with branches and intellectuals all over the world, even as it urged MEND to face their business with federal government of Nigeria.

The Statement further noted that, “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 Buhari to obey a simple court order in a country that claims to know the meaning of the word 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 who should know better that executive powers lies with Buhari but not judicial or legislative. Both arms combined is infinitely more powerful than the addressee presidency.”
