IPOB women gives Federal Government 7 days ultimatum to release Nnamdi Kanu

Nnamdi Kanu
Women members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have handed a seven day ultimatum calling on the Federal Government to release the detained leader of the group, Nnamdi Kanu, or face its wrath.

The women, who were dressed in Biafran emblems and Kanu’s portraits, vowed to embark on the next stage of its struggle to free Kanu including several activities which they claimed will embarrass the Federal Government.

The group, who handed the ultimatum while protesting along the Enyimba area and the Ariaria junction of the Enugu-Port Harcourt expressway, Aba, warned that Nigeria was sliding towards danger with the continued detention of Kanu.
“We are handing a seven day ultimatum to the Federal Government to release Nnamdi Kanu. It is either they release him or face our wrath. In Igbo land, when women embark on a protest march, it means that the matter at hand had become serious.We decided to hold this protest to appeal to the Federal Government to release him.
“We can’t understand why the government is still detaining Nnamdi Kanu since he has been granted bail. IPOB sees this as part of the larger plot in the marginalization of Ndigbo. This is another proof that Ndigbo are not wanted in Nigeria, if a freedom fighter like Nnamdi Kanu, will be detained indefinitely.”
