Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra has warned the Nigerian Army and Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma over the arrest of some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) following the air strikes in Orlu area of the state, last week.
In a statement signed on Tuesday, by his Media and Publicity Secretary, the IPOB leader faulted the arrest of the IPOB members, saying the Eastern Security Network is too focused to be distracted by mere propaganda.
The statement partly read; “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the statement by the Nigeria military that those it arrested in Orlu during the air strike last week are ESN operatives. It’s just unfortunate that the Nigeria Army which capitulates before rag-tag Boko Haram could curiously arrest innocent Biafran civilians at Orlu branding them ESN operatives.
“Till tomorrow, the Nigeria military should know that its troops are no match to the gallant and formidable ESN operatives. We are miles ahead of them, and can never be subdued by them. Their propaganda cannot work.
“We equally want to warn the Nigerian military to ensure nothing happens to the Jewish Rabbi Kelechi Nwachukwu and his family as well as other IPOB members they arrested out of frustration following their humiliation by the indomitable ESN operatives at Orlu. We must warn the Nigeria military as well as the Supreme Court Administrator in Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, to ensure that nothing happens to these IPOB members and 33 synagogue worshipers arrested in Orlu and paraded in the public as if they were criminals.
“Hope Uzodima should be ashamed of himself for masterminding the killing and persecution of his unarmed people at a time his fellow Northern Governors are openly negotiating with armed bandits and terrorists. While the Northern Leaders are busy facilitating amnesty for mass murderers, Hope Uzodinma and his fellow traitors in the South East are sponsoring the destruction of their own people. But these saboteurs and Fulani slaves in our land must reap the fruit of treachery!”
