IPOB Alleges Plot To Extend Kanu’s Detention
• Monarch Calls For His Release
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused the Federal Government of trying to paint a picture of a violent group and link them with Boko Haram in order to justify their continued detention and incarceration of their leader and Director, Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.
Spokesman of IPOB in Anambra state, Mr. Emma Powerful was reacting to the crisis that led to the shooting to death of nine persons and over 18 that sustained injuries on Wednesday at the Niger Bridge Head Onitsha and environs.
Powerful alleged that some persons in the country who became unsettled with their peaceful and non-violent protests in Southeast, have been busy looking for a way to provoke violence in their protests to discredit the people and make them look like Boko Haram.
He gave the names of the five IPOB members that were shot dead at about 1.30 am early Wednesday morning as Chima Onoh from Enugu state, Kenneth Ogadinma from Abia State, Angus Chikwado and Felicia Egwuatu from Anambra state, adding that the JTF also killed the young lady later identified as Nkiruka and tried to take her corpse away.
He said, “She was the same young lady that was alleged to have been hit by stray bullet at Obodoukwu road when the army and the Police were shooting sporadically around Upper Iweka and Owerri road in the name of dispersing the crowd.
