The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has given the Federal Government 11 days to free its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, unconditionally, or face jarring consequences.
This comes days after the Department of State Services failed to produce Kanu in court during the resumption of his trial Monday.
Reacting, IPOB Head, Directorate of State, Mazi Chika Edoziem, said the Southeast would be totally locked down daily if Kanu is not released before August 9, 2021.
Edoziem, in a statement issued yesterday, explained that the lockdown is to ensure government released Kanu “hale and hearty.”
“The global community knows that self-determination is not a crime, the Nigerian government equally know that self-determination does not constitute any known offence stipulated in their constitution and therefore do not have any case against the leader of IPOB, Mazi Kanu.
“In recognition of the above fact and truth, the Directorate of State of IPOB, demands herewith an unconditional and immediate release of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on or before the 8th day of August 2021, failing which we shall commence a weekly Lockdown of Biafra land starting from 9th August, 2021.
“For the avoidance of doubt this total lockdown of Biafra land will take place every Monday until our leader is released unconditionally.
“This weekly lockdown is simply one of the measures we shall put in place to ensure that our leader is released hale and hearty,” the statement read in part.
