The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have told President Muhammadu Buhari to be prepared to shoot and kill as many people as possible in Abuja on Monday.
IPOB noted that no amount of threats can stop its members and other Biafrans from flooding the court.
Abubakar Malami, the attorney general of the Federation, AGF, had warned members of IPOB to stay away from the court sitting which holds at the Federal High Court, Abuja on July 26, 2021.
The Minister also warned against display of branded IPOB T-shirts or caps around the court premises.
Nnamdi Kanu, who was arrested in Kenya was brought to Nigeria few week ago and kept in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
He will appear in court today, Monday 26th July, 2021.
“The federal government of Nigeria has no right to stop IPOB or Biafrans from coming to Abuja to witness the court proceedings or to show solidarity to our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Nigeria government cannot beat a child and force him or her not to cry. IPOB has every right to be in court on that day,” Emma Powerful, IPOB’s mouthpiece, reported
“Anybody who doesn’t want to go to court is free to do so but Mallami and Federal Government of Nigeria have no powers or rights to stop anybody from going to Abuja.
“One thing they forget is that it’s not about Nnamdi Kanu, it’s about Biafra. The issue of Biafra agitation has since gone beyond Nnamdi Kanu. It’s now an unstoppable mass movement.
“The truth is that not just IPOB members but thousands of Biafrans and their sympathizers will flood Abuja on Monday to show solidarity to our leader, Nnamdi Kanu. He is only a freedom fighter and Nigeria cannot stop people from identifying with him.
“So, if they want to shoot or kill people they should prepare very well because they will have enough to kill or arrest.
“We are not afraid and can’t be afraid at this point of our journey when our freedom is at the threshold. We can’t abandon our leader.
“The only thing is that we shall be very civil, organized, and peaceful but we can’t be cowed. The world will see how they kill innocent citizens that day in Abuja,” he added.
