The Leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has flayed the West and the North for not condemning the detention of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The group in a statement credited to its spokesman, Emma Powerful stated that the Yoruba and the Hausa were not speaking against the injustice, saying that that was why God was angry with Nigeria. The group maintained that its leader committed no crime and should not suffer undeserved punishment.
The statement reads: “The indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide and the Directorate of State (DOS) want to use this medium to let Nigerians and the world understand that the leader of the indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the director of Radio and Biafra television, Prophet Nnamdi Kanu, committed no crime against the government of Nigeria and her citizens.
“Nevertheless, the people of Arewa and Oduduwa nations that are supposed to condemn the illegal detention of mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the persecution of the people of Biafra, but refused to speak against it because it does not concern their people, will soon get to know how God works, and in no distant future they will hear the actual message from God with the plan he has for the people of Biafra.
“The arrest and the illegal detention of the leader of IPOB worldwide is the worst thing that can happen to Nigeria today, because it is Nnamdi Kanu’s anger that made God Almighty to be angry with the government and the country as well.
“Nnamdi Kanu is a peaceful man that knows the law and how to use diplomatic way to get what he wants without shedding blood in the quest to restore God’s nation, Biafra.
“The quest for the restoration of the ancient nation of Biafra led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is now getting kudos from the people of northern and western Nigeria, mainly the northern Christians and some Muslims who believe in justice in this contraption called Nigeria.
“God Almighty (Chukwu Okike Abiama) creates nations not man. How can ordinary man come in from a far and join nations of different value system together with the consultation of our fathers you call it a country?
