The Indigenous People of Biafra has called for the immediate release of its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu, from the custody of the Department of State Services, Abuja.The group said the demand became necessary because of the threats by terrorists to take over Abuja and the entire Nigeria.In a statement on Thursday, IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, reminded the federal government and security agencies that the United Nations had mandated the unconditional release of Kanu.Powerful added that the appropriate compensation should be paid to him without delay “because he committed no crime against Nigeria and her sovereignty.”He said that the closure of public schools in Abuja showed that the federal government has lost control of security and can no longer guarantee the safety of Kanu in detention.He said: “The attention of the global movement and family of IPOB has been drawn to the sudden closure of all the government public schools operating in Abuja because of the threats from terrorists groomed by Fulani people to take over Abuja and entire Nigeria.“IPOB, therefore, demands the immediate release of the leader of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from the DSS dungeon in Abuja by the federal government and her compromised DSS.“We are reminding Nigeria and her security agencies that the world through UN rights group has mandated for the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi KANU and the appropriate compensation paid to him without delay because he committed no crime against Nigeria and her sovereignty.”
