The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) has threatened to carry arms against the federal government if their leader Nnamdi Kanu is not found.
The group said this on Monday released by Emma Powerful, the IPOB spokesman pending Nnamdi Kanu’s trial on Tuesday for alleged treason.
He added that IPOB is loosing its patience on the Federal government and will be forced to take action.
The statement read
“The barefaced lies of the Nigerian Defence Minister, General Mansur Dan Ali, and that of the Buhari regime against our leader and organisation is beginning to unravel before the eyes of the world.
“By admitting publicly that soldiers were sent to Isiama Afaraukwu to look for our leader without any order or warrant from a court of law confirms the contempt in which the Nigerian government holds the rule of law and their judicial process.
“It is therefore incumbent upon civilised nations of the world and organisations alike to ask the APC-led Nigerian government why they decided to send armed soldiers to invade Kanu’s residence.”
The group added, “One outcome is guaranteed in all this, should Nigeria not produce our leader in court on the 17th of October 2017, there will be inevitable confrontation on a scale the human mind cannot imagine, at a time and place of our choosing.”
