•IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu during a court appearance



The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to stop prevaricating and answer the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, on why its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is still in the custody of the Directorate of Security Service (DSS).

IPOB in a statement signed by its Media and Publicity Secretary Emma Powerful, made available to journalists in Awka at the weekend, said: “The statement of Buhari about the plights and continued detention of Biafra leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Kigali during the Commonwealth meeting going on in Rwanda showed that the world leaders are aware of the pranks of Buhari and his Fulani-controlled Federal Government of Nigeria.

“UK prime Minister specifically asked Buhari why Biafra leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is still in detention but Buhari instead of responding to the question frontally chose to play to the gallery. Is it that he was not aware that his military invaded Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's Afaraukwu country home on September 14, 2017 or that he deliberately decided to be mischievous.

“He as the Commander in Chief of the Nigerian Armed forces instructed the invasion of the palace, village and Afaraukwu Ibeku Kingdom (community) Umuahia province (Abia State) with a mission to kill MNK, IPOB members and any living thing found in his compound to the extent that they killed a dog, the house pet of our leader.

“UK Prime Minister specifically asked Buhari why Biafra leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is still in detention. In response Buhari and his handlers present, in their cluelessness, uninformed with no legal knowledge and deficiencies in relation to internal developments in the country perhaps due to biweekly international junketings he made unsubstantiated, fallacious and misleading comments with reference to associating Mazi Nnamdi Kanu with “jumping bail”.

“It is on record that Nnamdi Kanu did not jump bail but only ran for his dear life. The video evidence of the military invasion of his house which claimed no fewer than 30 lives, only confirmed that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu did what was needful for the moment.

“It is evident that world leaders enjoy making Buhari to advertise his ignorance of obvious realities and current issues. The global community after watching the military invasion of the home of the Biafran leader, where Armoured vehicles and Helicopter gunships were used against an unarmed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra clearly understand that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu did not jump bail, instead he escaped for his life. The indisputable truth is that if he did not run, by now he would have been a dead man.”

The separatist group said the world is watching and looking for what is still keeping Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody, saying that Buhari and his security agencies won’t admit the truth.

It added: “We are aware that he has been under intense pressure to explain the role of his Government over the illegal abduction and extraordinary rendition from Kenya to Nigeria of a British citizen.

“The commonwealth meeting in Rwanda exposed Buhari and his Fulani-controlled Federal Government of Nigeria but because he is looking for opportunity to lie against our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kamuthat is why he chose to lie to the international community and commonwealth heads of government in Kigali Rwanda.

“The world should hold Buhari accountable for the torture he is being put through and whatever that may happen to our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”

IPOB wondered why Buhari who openly stated that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu should defend his matter in the court, promising not to interfere with judicial process suddenly forgot and make statements intended to intimidate the judge who is handling the case.

It called on the global world to take note of Buhari’s meeting with Igbo leaders who visited him to demand for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“It is worthy and imperative for the global community to note that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu never jumped bail as widely and consistently propagated and publicized in local, International and mainstream medias by our enemies, instead he by the strokes of luck managed to escape a well planned military invasion of his home which was intended and calculated to murder him in his father’s compound

“As much as we knew, he was fully prepared to storm the court with at least 2 million people already mobilised from among his followers to accompany him to the next adjourned court date which incidentally was just some days before the military invaded his home to kill him and stop him from attending the court case.

“Buhari’s maximum Military (On land and Air) invasion of Afaraukwu for the assassination of Nnamdi Kanu was the only reason why he fled the country.

“The world leaders are watching Buhari and his court with keen interest and wants to know why Mazi Nnamdi kanu an extraordinary renditioned victim is still unlawfully detained in DSS custody.

“From all correspondences at our disposal, attention is on Nigeria judiciary with regard to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's abduction in Kenya and extraordinarily renditioned to Nigeria, his successful fundamental human right case in Umuahia and his British Citizenship, where a Federal High Court of competent jurisdiction gave a judgment that he ran away for his dear life and granted him one billion Naira (1b) compensation,” the statement added.
