The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB on Saturday, stated that the only way to save Nigeria is to release its embattled leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
IPOB made the remark on Saturday, while condemning the Save Nigeria Movement, SNM, for criticising the House of Representatives ad-hoc Committee Chairman, Obinna Aguocha for his remark on Kanu.
Lawmaker, Obinna Aguocha had called on the Nigerian government and the Department of State Services, DSS, to release Kanu unconditionally from solitary confinement following an investigation by the ad hoc committee.
After much deliberation at the chambers on the level of insecurity throughout Nigeria with emphasis on the Southeast, the ad hoc Committee chairman gave the only solution to ending insecurity in the East as the release of Kanu.
However, IPOB said the unguarded attacks and petition from a shadow chasing group called Save Nigeria Movement (SNM) against the Federal House of Representatives ad hoc Committee Chairman Honorable Obinna Aguocha for saying the truth about the illegal detention of Nnamdi KANU shows the group is clueless.
IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, accused SNM of displaying their bigotry by casting aspersions on Aguocha’s image.
A statement by Powerful reads: “We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is asking, “how can charlatans form a group to save a dying nation and at the same time promote the demise of the same country through their display of ignorance?”
“Hon. Aguocha is a stakeholder in the Southeast and knows exactly the root cause of the insecurity in the Southeast. But for the fact that the Nigerian government is sponsoring insecurity as a reason to continue the illegal detention of Mazi Nnamdi KANU, they will use their attack dogs like SNM to attack anyone who calls for the release of Mazi Nnamdi KANU.
“It is non-negotiable that the Nigerian government must obey the Appeal Court judgments that have discharged and acquitted Mazi Nnamdi KANU. Should the government insist on the Supreme Court verdict, the eyes of the world are on the Nigeria Supreme Court to legalize the International Crime of extraordinary rendition.
“If SNM members are not deluded, they should retract their unguarded statements and petition against Aguocha. Also, they should tell the Nigerian government to respect her own rule of law by releasing Mazi Nnamdi KANU unconditionally, as the courts have declared. By doing so, SNG can save Nigeria if they wish.”
