The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Wednesday said it would not engage the Federal Government in any dialogue until its leader, Nnamdi Kanu is released.
This development was contained in a statement released by its spokeperson, Emma Powerful in Awka on Wednesday.
The group described the continued detention of Kanu as an impunity and disrespect for the Constitution of the country.
The statement reads in parts; “For Buhari to continue to keep Kanu in custody after a court of competent jurisdiction had granted him (Kanu) bail is enough corruption.”
“They don’t know this man called Nnamdi Kanu. They can’t intimidate Kanu by dumping him in prison. He can’t beg anybody for his freedom.”
“Instead of our leader to renounce Biafra, he would renounce Nigeria publicly, mark our words.
“We are not after securing bail for our leader; we are after his freedom and freedom for the people of Biafra.
“Even a child born today knows that any attempt to tamper with Nnamdi Kanu’s life will bring about catastrophic consequences.”
“Should anything happen to Kanu, Somalia will be a paradise, compared to what will happen in Nigeria.
“We are not asking for anything short of his immediate and unconditional release, as ordered by an Abuja Federal High Court.”
