The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has thrown its support behind its leader ,Nnamdi Kanu , as the group finally speaks on his arrest.

The IPOB leader who has been arraigned before Binta Nyako, a Judge of the Federal High Court in Abuja was arrested and extradited to Nigeria on Tuesday according to the Federal Government, to continue his pending trial .

Kanu is facing charges bordering on treasonable felony as a result of years of campaign for the independent Republic of Biafra through IPOB.

The Spokesperson of IPOB, Emma Powerful , said the group will not be deterred in its ambition for Biafra’s sovereignty.

‘Powerful’ directed IPOB members to “mobilise” and attend the court hearing on July 26, when Kanu’s trial will continue.

The statement read, “We the global movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, confirm the abduction of our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian Government and her security operatives. We shall expose details of his abduction later.

“Our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is presently in the custody of the Nigerian Government. This evil crime of kidnapping was masterminded by the Nigerian Government in collaboration with all those that view IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as a stumbling block against their bid to hold Biafra in perpetual slavery.

“We, therefore, enjoin every IPOB member both at home and in the Diaspora and all Biafrans to remain calm because this is not the end of the road. Our Leader’s next court appearance is July 26, 2021, and Biafrans should mobilise and attend the court hearing”, it added
