The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has on Monday, given possible reason why the Nigerian Federal Government is still holding its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in detention. ayokinews.com reports
In a statement released by IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, it was stated that the Federal Government is still holding onto Nnamdi Kanu, because it wants to infiltrate the Biafra movement from the inside.
Powerful stated that the Federal Government was irritated with Kanu because he refused to accept monetary and property inducements to betray Biafra.
The statement reads: “The attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been drawn to the secret plans by the Buhari government and his Fulani kinsmen to illegally detain our leader Nnamdi Kanu for as long as possible.”
“Their annoyance with our leader is his blunt refusal to take properties and monetary inducement offered him to abandon the struggle for Biafra liberation.”
“The Federal Government decided to hold our leader indefinitely to see if it can possibly infiltrate the ranks of our great movement and destroy it from inside while our leader is in custody.”
“The federal government is also relying on the promise by some traitors and black sheep in America and Europe that they would assist it to realise the evil plot.”
Powerful revealed that during a covert visit to Aso Rock in December 2021, the pledge was made to the federal government by the alleged traitors.
“We are also aware that the Federal administration has been pushing the world community to rally support against the freedom of Biafra, but they will fail.”
“As a result, anybody diverting or causing division within the IPOB family is a tool working for the Federal Government of Nigeria, whether consciously or unknowingly. Biafra is without a doubt, a heavenly endeavor,” he said.
“It has gone beyond any single individual, including our leader. Millions of the oppressed Biafran youths home and abroad are now more aware and conscious than ever. It’s only a matter of time. Biafra must come. It can only be delayed but certainly not suppressed.”
