The Indigenous People of Biafra has asked Britain the United States of America and the United Nations to prevail on President Muhammadu Buhari to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu. The group in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, insisted that President Buhari knows the whereabouts of Kanu.
The group asked the Federal Government to produce Kanu and charge him as appropriate, instead of embarking on the “witch-hunt of Senator Ennyinnaya Abaribe” who stood as surety for the IPOB leader. The group said the harassment of Abaribe and others who stood surety for Kanu was to portray him to have jumped bail when it was not so.
It insisted that Kanu was taken by soldiers on September 14, 2017, when they invaded his house and allegedly killed no fewer than 28 of his followers.
