ANAMBRA, NOVEMBER 21, 2016 – Emmanuel Kanu, a sibling to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu on Sunday described the recession in the country as Nigeria’s nemesis for fighting Biafra.
In a press statement made available to our correspondent in Awka, Anambra State, Emmanuel said more plagues would befall the country if the authorities fail to free his brother and allow Biafra be.
The statement read, “The family members of the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu who is being detained illegally in kuje prison, condemned the incessant kidnapping and spilling of blood of unarmed members of the indigenous people of Biafra in parts of Biafra land.
“The blood of Biafrans spilled in Nigeria since 1945 till date is crying to the God Almighty for revenge, that is why Nigerians are suffering today and no remedy is in sight unless the government of Nigeria and her security agents stop killing Biafrans and allow Biafra to become an independent state.
“They arrested the anointed man of God, Nnamdi Kanu who was sent to come and liberate his people of Biafra.
The statement maintained that all those who had hands in the incarceration of Kanu would not go scot free.
It added, “Let us ask the former Head of state, retired Gen. Yakubu Gowon, Olusegu Obasanjo and the president of Nigeria Gen Muhammad Buhari why they took it upon themselves to detain and kill unarmed Biafran people .
“Nigeria can never see good thing unless the government and her security agents stop spilling the blood of Biafrans and release my brother , Nnamdi Kanu and other members of the indigenous people of Biafra detained illegally in prisons and security cells in Nigeria.
“Without that, the Nigeria government and Nigerians can see the wrath of God coming upon the land because they arrested the man who came to fulfill the project of God Almighty.
“The government should release my brother, and other members of IPOB unconditionally to avert more plagues on Nigeria”, the statement maintained.
