Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB,  on Friday, August 14, 2020, condemned the arrest of seventy, (70) Biafrans in Imo state.

In a statement he personally signed but sent by Emma Powerful, IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, Kanu said he has written to the United Kingdom and the United States respectively, warning that a peaceful agitation should not be construed as weakness.

He advised the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, and the state’s commissioner for police, Isaac Olutayo Akinmode to release the arrested Biafrans.

His words:  We wish to draw the attention of the creator of Nigeria, Almighty Great Britain through the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, the UK in Nigeria, the US State Department through U.S. Mission Nigeria, to the deliberate and orchestrated provocations/actions of the government against peaceful Biafrans.

“Without provocation and have not committed any crime known to the law, a group of Biafrans numbering over 70 were arrested, humiliated and detained by Isaac Olutayo Akinmoyede, Police Commissioner in Imo State.

“Despite the daily carnage and mayhem in Imo State by herdsmen, no one has been arrested and detained in the police custody.

“Police are yet to arrest or parade suspects involved in the killings and destruction of farmlands in the State.

“This same police had the temerity to detain innocent people going about their business because they are Biafrans.

“Is the state governor and commissioner for police saying that Biafrans can be arrested at will even when no crime has been committed but herdsmen are free to roam and kill at will.

This level of provocation is unacceptable. If and when Biafran people decide to take matters into their own hands, let it be on record that the duo caused it.

Peaceful agitation should not be construed as weakness.”
