IPOB Reveals Why Buhari Revoked His Decision On Nnamdi Kanu’s Release

IPOB has opened up on why President Muhammdu Buhari nullified his decision to release Nnamdi Kanu.

Infoexpert24 reports that IPOB revealed that some saboteurs and foreign-based traitors within its ranks are the ones forcing the president not to release Nnamdi Kanu.

The reaction follows a recent statement by President Buhari during an interview, where he said that he would not interfere in the judicial process but that the IPOB leader should rather answer to the allegations leveled against him.

This was made known in a statement on Sunday issued by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Mr. Emma Powerful, where he claimed that the alleged saboteurs and traitors held a meeting with Buhari and advised the President not to release Kanu.

IPOB in the statement also claimed that the enemies of the freedom struggle, after meeting the President in Aso Rock, misinformed him that the separatist organization and the Eastern Security Network (ESN) had been defeated.

The group, who asked the President to reconsider his stance on the release of Nnamdi Kanu, advised him not to be deceived by what it described as “blacklegs and sacked members of the movement,” who are feeding him with fake information about IPOB and the ESN for pecuniary interests.

What IPOB is saying in the statement

IPOB in its statement warned the Federal Government against the dangers of its continuous interruption with the judicial processes in the case against Kanu, saying if it was sure of its allegations against the IPOB leader, it should not be afraid of allowing the court to operate freely and independently.

The statement from IPOB partly reads, “Our intelligence captured what transpired at a meeting between these saboteurs and the President in Aso Rock. In the meeting, these traitors concluded with the Presidency that Kanu should not be released, claiming erroneously thought, that IPOB and the ESN have been defeated, which are lies.

“Our attention has also been drawn to the statement by President Buhari that he will not release our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We know that this new posture by Buhari after he had earlier promised a delegation of Igbo leaders that he would look at their appeal to consider a political solution for Kanu, was not unconnected with the visit by some foreign-based traitors and enemies of our struggle.

“But we want to tell Buhari that he is going to make a mistake capable of consuming Nigeria should he fail to release Kanu because these bunch of criminals he had a meeting with were not giving him correct information about IPOB and the ESN outfit.

“Why should the Federal Government be releasing bandits and terrorists wreaking havoc across the country, but fail to release freedom seekers? If they have a case against him, let them come straight to the court and stop coming from the backdoor.”

The group said if the Federal Government remained neutral and allowed the judicial processes to flow freely, Kanu was capable of defending himself in the court.

Going further, the group said, “Kanu and IPOB will defeat them both at local and international courts; the only thing that can save Nigeria is a referendum date for the people of Biafra because the world is keenly watching.

“IPOB is too big for them to comprehend and they could not fathom IPOB and its operational strategy when they were in IPOB. The people who visited the President promised to help him crush IPOB and the ESN, but unfortunately, they cannot achieve that; actually, they will be disappointed.”
