By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Nnamdi Kanu, refractory arrowhead of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has described the purported assassination attempt on the group’s lawyer, Chukwuemeka Okoroafor, on Friday, as a declaration of war by the Nigerian government on Biafra.
Kanu, who made this known via a statement on Saturday, slammed the attack on Okoroafor, who had visited a security facility in Abuja to request the release of some IPOB members arrested at Obigbo Rivers State during the #EndSARS protest, as an act of war on Biafra.
“Following the assassination attempt made in Abuja today on Barrister Chukwuemeka Richard Okoroafor, the IPOB lawyer who has been making frantic efforts to secure freedom for our ladies abducted from Obigbo at the aftermath of the #EndSARS protest and taken to Abuja, I, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, want to put the world on notice that the Nigeria Government has declared war on Biafra.
“The assassination attempt was in their desperation to frustrate us from securing freedom for these innocent ladies who the uncircumcised and amorous elements in the security agencies have turned into their … slaves,” Kanu said.
Kanu demanded the immediate release of all Biafran ladies in detention.
