Nnamdi Kanu: Police can’t stop our protest – IPOB members

On Monday, the 5th of July 2021, the Police Command in Abia State had revealed plans by some individuals and groups of persons to stage protests in the State.

In a release by its Public Relations Officer, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, the Police Command advised intending protesters to desist or postpone such exercise forth-with.

According to the Police Command, “this has become necessary as hoodlums or miscreants may hijack the process to unleash mayhem on the lives and property of innocent citizens.”

It disclosed that “the security operatives in the Abia State had been placed on red alert as the Command will not tolerate any act capable of truncating the peace in the state”.

However, an investigation conducted by DAILY POST on Wednesday, revealed that the Abia police’s claim came on the heels of the vows by some die-hard members and supporters of the detained leader of the Indigeneous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu to stage protest in the southeastern zone, especially Abia.

Nnamdi Kanu who is a indigene of Isiama Afaraukwu Ibeku in Abia was recently rearrested and repatriation from Kenya to Nigeria to continue treasonable felony charges preferred against by the Nigeria government

Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, who confirmed the development, had said the IPOB leader was arrested by a combined team of Nigerian and foreign security agents in a coordinated interception.

Against this backdrop, he was dragged before Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court for the continuation of his trial.

Justice Nyako, after listening to Kanu and the government, remanded him in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.

Recall that Kanu had a few years ago jumped bail and escaped out of the country after Nigeria soldiers invaded his Afaraukwu country home in 2017.
