Good day, Nigeria, welcome to Naija News roundup of Biafra/IPOB news headlines for today Wednesday, July 14th, 2021.
Below is a roundup of top stories on Biafra, IPOB, ESN, Nnamdi Kanu and other pro-Biafra groups:
The recently appointed host of Radio Biafra, Simon Ekpa, has stated that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) will deal with Southeast leaders working to destroy Nnamdi Kanu.
In a post on his Facebook page, Ekpa, a dual citizen of both Nigeria and Finland, said the struggle for the actualization of Biafra is currently in a new dimension.
The post reads, “The exposition continues. We will start visiting those that they’ve visited with offers in other to shot their mouth upon the abduction of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“The struggle for Biafra is now in a different level and we are in a critical moment of the struggle where all hands must be on deck.”
The family of the arrested leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has insisted they won’t attend any court hearing until they get an explanation on how the agitator was arrested.
Recall that IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu was reportedly rearrested in Kenya and extradited back to Nigeria on the 27th of June, 2021.
He was then arraigned before Justice Binta Nyako who ordered his remand in the custody of the DSS until his next trial date which is July 26 and 27.
Speaking through Nnamdi Kanu’s younger brother, Prince Emmanuel, the family accused the federal government of abducting and bundling Kanu back to Nigeria.
The family asked the government to explain how the pro-Biafra activist was “kidnapped in Kenya and who his abductors were or were working for.”
Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)’s Eastern Security Network (ESN) have killed two soldiers during a clash with troops at Adani community in Uzo-Uwani Council Area of Enugu State.
