Free Nnamdi Kanu to break the government siege of the Southeast by IPOB

IPOB claims that if their leader Nnamdi Kanu were released, state-sponsored crime in the Southeast would disappear.

IPOB issued the call in response to a warning issued by Chief of Army Staff Taoreed Lagbaja over Simon Ekpa’s sit-at-home command.

The Nigerian Army, as Lagbaja had warned they would not, would no longer tolerate the sit-down order in the Southeast.

The organization denied any accountability for Mondays or the alleged two-week failure to implement a seven-day stay-in-bed directive.

Speaking on behalf of IPOB, Emma Powerful released the following statement: “IPOB worldwide condemns the statement credited to the Nigerian Army linking IPOB to the incessant and destructive sit-at-home orders and enforcement in the Southeast.”

When asked about IPOB’s prior statements distancing themselves from Simon Ekpa and his illegal sit-at-home enforcers, Gen. Lagbaja Taoreed said, “The Army chief, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, will not claim ignorance of all the previous press releases written by IPOB led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”

The autopilot team, led by Simon Ekpa, is responsible for the dangerous and counterproductive sit-at-home plan. We have made it clear that neither Simon Ekpa nor the autopilot gang he leads represent IPOB or its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and that their violent implementation of the sit-at-home instructions is not sanctioned by IPOB.

“If indeed the Nigerian government and her security agencies are interested in the peace of the Eastern Region, they should release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally, as pronounced by the Appeal Court of Nigeria in Abuja, and see their sponsored criminal agents using Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s detention to perpetrate crime go into oblivion and fade away.”
