The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Wednesday, said the continued detention of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu in Kuje Prison, was part of a grand design by the Federal Government to kill him
In a statement by the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, the pro-Biafra group alleged that the government was using the security agencies and the judiciary to pervert justice.
He said, “The judiciary that is supposed to serve as the beacon where justice prevails and the last hope of the common man has turned themselves into a mess and allowed themselves to be used to torment the country.
“It is very unfortunate that the Nigeria judiciary and judicial commission could allow themselves to be instrumental to the humiliation of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and others detained illegally who committed no crime against humanity or Nigerian state.
“Again, we are all aware that two courts of competent jurisdiction had granted unconditional release of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“With the judgment from justice Binta Nyako on the 20th March 2017, it proved to the entire world that Nigeria government have no evidence to prove their case against our leader Nnamdi Kanu,” Powerful stated.
