The Indigenous People of Biafra has said that saboteurs and traitors within its ranks were the ones forcing the President Muhammadu Buhari not to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
In a statement on Sunday, the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Mr Emma Powerful, claimed that these “sabotures” and “traitors” held a meeting with Buhari where they advised the President not to release Kanu.
The statement also claimed that the “enemies of the freedom struggle,” after meeting the President in Aso Rock, misinformed him that IPOB and the Eastern Security Network have been defeated.
The group, therefore, advised the President not be deceived by what it described as “blacklegs and sacked members of the movement” who are feeding him with fake information about IPOB and ESN outfit for pecuniary interests.
It also cautioned the Federal Government on the dangers of its continuous interruption with the judicial processes in its case against Kanu, saying that if the government was sure of its allegations against Kanu, it should not be afraid of allowing the court to flow freely and independently.
It added that Kanu would defeat the Federal Government in any court of law both local and international because they have no case against him, adding that the only thing that can save the country is “referendum date for the people of Biafra because the world is keenly watching.”
