There is no going back – IPOB stands firm over Nnamdi Kanu’s re-arrest

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has made it clear the arrest of its leader Nnamdi Kanu, would not stop the agitation for Biafra sovereignty.

This was contained in a statement on Wednesday, signed by IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful.

“IPOB will not relent in the pursuit of Biafra freedom.

“We have crossed the Rubicon in our struggle for the restoration of Biafran Sovereignty.

“There is no going back no matter the level of intimidation by our oppressors,” it read.

Kanu was arrested on Sunday and brought to Nigeria, according to the Attorney-General Abubakar Malami said on Tuesday.

The IPOB leader appeared before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Kanu, who was brought to the court amidst tight security, arrived at the court at about 1:40 pm.

The IPOB leader is facing a sleuth of charges, most of which are connected to his call for the independence of the southeastern region of Nigeria.
