On Saturday, IPOB (Indigenous People of Biafra) declared that releasing Nigeria’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, was the only option for the country’s survival.
IPOB said this as it criticized the Save Nigeria Movement (SNM) for attacking House ad hoc Committee Chairman Obinna Aguocha for his comments about Kanu.
After the ad hoc committee finished its inquiry, Obinna Aguocha, a Nigerian lawmaker, demanded that Kanu be released from solitary incarceration without any conditions.
After lengthy debate in the chambers about the state of security in Nigeria, particularly in the Southeast, the chairman of the ad hoc Committee concluded that releasing Kanu was the only way to permanently cease violence in the region.
IPOB, on the other hand, claimed that the shadowy Save Nigeria Movement (SNM) showed its naivete by attacking and petitioning the Federal House of Representatives ad hoc Committee Chairman Honorable Obinna Aguocha for speaking the truth about Nnamdi KANU’s illegal detention.
IPOB’s spokesperson Emma Powerful said that by attacking Aguocha’s character, SNM were showing their intolerance.
“We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is saying, “how can charlatans form a group to save a dying nation and at the same time encourage the death of the same country via their display of ignorance?” says a statement by Powerful.
“Hon. Aguocha has a vested interest in the Southeast and is familiar with the dynamics that give rise to the region’s pervasive sense of insecurity. However, the Nigerian government is using insecurity as an excuse to keep Mazi Nnamdi KANU in illegal detention, and they are using attack dogs like the SNM to attack anyone who demands for KANU’s release.
The Appeal Court rulings that exonerated and acquitted Mazi Nnamdi KANU must be respected by the Nigerian government. The eyes of the world are on the Nigeria Supreme Court as it decides whether or not to legitimize the International Crime of extraordinary rendition if the government insists on the Supreme Court judgment.
Members of the SNM, if they are not fooled, should apologize for their careless language and withdraw their petition against Aguocha. Also, they need to demand that the Nigerian government obey the rulings of her own courts and release Mazi Nnamdi KANU without any conditions. If SNG wants to save Nigeria, they can.
