Spokesperson of The Indigenous People of Biafra, Emma Powerful, has said the he is optimistic that their detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu will be set free on Monday, March 20, 2017.
The IPOB in a statement, says it believes the Justice Binta Nyako-led court will quash the outstanding charges against its leader and others because they are not guilty. The Biafran agitation group also call on Igbos from all section of life to demonstration solidarity by storming the Federal High court to watch live, the prospective release of Kanu and others.
The statement states: “The court case that is coming up this Monday in the Federal High Court, Abuja is between our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and federal government of Nigeria on the concocted charge of treasonable felony without proof or evidence.
“Nigeria has the dubious distinction of being the only contraption on earth where those that hold opposing views to that of the government are locked up on the grounds of being treasonous yet no single evidence to back up the claim."
