According to REPORTERS, the release of their members who were clamped into detention camps and prison custody, threw the IPOB members into jubilation in various parts of Onitsha, Anambra state, although the jubilation did not take place publicly as they did when a court granted their leader, Nnamdi Kanu bail, some time last year.
Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have praised the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubabar Malami, for ordering the release of some of their members that were arrested months ago.
In a press statement issued to newsmen on Thursday, August 11, by Emma Powerful, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, in Onitsha, the Anambra state capital, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has revealed that the Federal Government, through the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, released all their members who were arrested by various security agencies in Aba, Abia State, during their prayer rally in February this year.
The statement said all IPOB members worldwide under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Director of Radio Biafra were commending the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF and all those who have common sense to understand that all those arrested in Aba must be released.
The statement read..
“IPOB is a liberation movement dedicated to the self determination of the indigenous people of Biafra in line with universally acclaimed processes and procedure. Having launched Biafrexit, IPOB is fully committed to pursuing a referendum to determine once and for all, the time the issue of the sovereignty of Biafra would come. We also urge the AGF and his team who understand the meaning of non-violent approach towards the liberation of those in bondage in this country to extend such a gesture to other members who were detained in different prisons and security cells in the country, including their leader, Nnamdi Kanu by releasing them without any conditional attachment.”
“The issue of Biafra self determination cannot be swept under the carpet because Biafra is in black Africa where acceptable civilized standards are lacking. What is good for Scotland and Britain at large is also good for Biafra.
“The same way the British government of David Cameron allowed the Scottish nation to freely choose if they want to be part of the UK or not, and most recently, Brexit that culminated into the removal of Britain from the EU, we, in IPOB will continue to demand the civilized world to prevail on Buhari to allow Biafrans to freely choose where they wish to belong.
