No Pressure would make Nnamdi Kanu betray his own People - IPOB




The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), yesterday, Wednesday said that it would not enter into any dialogue with the Federal Government of Nigeria without the release of Nnamdi Kanu.
According to report, the IPOB said that unless Nnamdi Kanu is released unconditionally before they might go into dialogue.
IPOB in a statement described the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu as an impunity and disrespect for Nigerian constitution.
The statement read, “For Buhari to continue to keep Nnamdi Kanu in custody after court of competent jurisdiction had granted him bail is enough corruption.
IPOB also stressed that it was a waste of time for the Federal Government to think that the IPOB will enter into any dialogue without our leader (Nnamdi Kanu).
No pressure would make Nnamdi Kanu betray his own people, IPOB insist.
In its statement read in parts, “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.”
He added (Emma Powerful), “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 the freedom of the people of Biafra.
He said, “Even a child born today knows that any attempt to tamper with Kanu’s life will bring about catastrophe consequences.”
“Should anything happen to Nnamdi Kanu, Somalia will be a paradise, compare to what will happen in Nigeria.
He ended his quote by saying, “We are not asking for anything short of his immediate and unconditional release, as ordered by an Abuja Federal High Court.”
