IPOB, the Indigenous People of Biafra, has denounced the Arewa Community in Southern Nigeria’s demand that President Muhammadu Buhari refrains from releasing Nnamdi Kanu before May 29.
The Arewa community was cautioned by IPOB to stop slandering Kanu’s release.
Musa Saidu, the Community’s leader, made the call while criticizing the statement made by Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, the President-General of Ohanaeze.
In response, IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, referred to the Arewa community as a mushroom group that was showing off its stupidity to the world.
Emma Powerful’s statement…
“We, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, under the command of Nnamdi Kanu, condemn the unguarded statements credited to non-existent and so-called Southern Arewa Forum against the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu,” Powerful said in a statement.
“It is clear that the mushroom Arewa group is showing the public their lack of knowledge and inexperience.
“They failed to remember that the Supreme Court of Nigeria, not them, would decide Nnamdi Kanu’s case.
“It’s terrible that we were coerced into forming a coalition with individuals who reject the rule of law. These individuals have tarnished Nigeria’s reputation. Nigeria is now viewed as a pariah state by developed countries.”
The Arewa committee was told by IPOB that Kanu’s case has implications for both the local community and the world at large.
