The Indigenous People of Biafra has vowed to declare war on all politicians and traditional rulers of South-East extraction if its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, remained incarcerated.
The secessionist group threatened tumult, saying that Igbo politicians and traditional rulers will never have peace until Kanu regains freedom.
Spokesperson for the group, Emma Powerful, issued a statement rebuking South-East leaders for keeping mum over the arrest of Kanu.
The statement read, “All along, IPOB has been peaceful while our members are being abducted and killed by security agents. Now they have abducted our leader and these so-called Biafran leaders are keeping sealed lips. It is either they stand with the people or be counted among our enemies.
“Our leader cannot be languishing in detention while these people will pretend that all is well. Their Northern counterparts are shamelessly defending Fulani bandits and terrorists rampaging communities across the country yet these weaklings cannot speak out against the injustice against their own. Enough is enough! No more sitting on the fence. Everyone must declare his/her stance now.
“As long as our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu remains incarcerated in Abuja, all the politicians from ward level to federal level including traditional rulers, stakeholders and religious leaders will never have peace till he comes out except they wake up now.”
