Appeal Court order: IPOB members protest continuous detention of Nnamdi Kanu
Scores of members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, based in the United Kingdom, have protested the continuous detaining of their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, by the Nigerian government despite a subsisting Appeal Court order, acquitting him.
Last week, the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja and presided over by Justice Binta Nyako discharged and acquitted the IPOB leader of terrorism charges brought against him by the Federal Government.
TNN reported that the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, rejected the appellate court judgement, claiming Kanu was only discharged, not acquitted.
Several calls from eminent Nigerians for the President Muhammdu Buhari government to release Nnamdi Kanu fell on deaf ears.
Hence, the United K-based IPOB members commenced a solidarity protest on Monday against the defiance of the court order granting Kanu’s release by the Nigerian Government.
A member of IPOB, Mazi Chukwunonso disclosed on Twitter that IPOB families came out in their large numbers to stage a protest towards the actualisation of Biafran Republic.
“Here are #IPOB families protesting in London, England 🇬🇧 with “Chief IMO” one of our finest musicians and Actor in southeast #BiafraLand. #BiafraReferendum #biafragenocide67,” he wrote.
Another user, John-Ezeakolam also said, “#IPOB London, England One Million Man March kick-off.”
“IPOB Day Two (2) Protest Live In Anfield, Liverpool 17/10/2022 For Immediate Release Of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,” Oluchi Christy added.
