The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has said that he is not afraid of returning back to prison for the second time.
Kanu, who stated this in a statement signed by the group’s Media Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, said there was need to make the clarification, especially for those who were calling for the rearrest of Kanu, for flouting his bail conditions.
The group said the call stemmed from the success of the sit-at-home protest declared by Kanu, which it said witnessed a large participation.
It said: “Arresting Nnamdi Kanu again, cannot stop the agitation, rather it will be a very big mistake on the side of Federal Government and her security operatives, because when the security operatives arrested him on his arrival from London in his hotel room in Lagos, it sparked protests and rallies across the world.
“Arresting him again will draw the attention of the world leaders, and other relevant world organizations closer to the quest for Biafra independence.
“Therefore, we don’t give a damn, whether they arrest him or not, we don’t bother. Keeping Nnamdi Kanu in or out of Nigerian prison matters nothing to us, because the restoration effort continues unabated. Having Nnamdi Kanu in prison, is always good for the struggle to restore Biafra.”
The group said the refusal to free him after two courts of competent jurisdiction granted him unconditional release, elevated the struggle to another level.
He boasted that if: “Nnamdi Kanu dies in prison or any other means, then Nigeria will witness a level of seismic destruction unknown to mankind, that even Britain cannot stop.
“IPOB and it’s leadership, are not even deterred by any threat from any corner, because what we are doing is inalienable rights to all the indigenous people around the world, and it was enshrined in the United Nations charter.”
