The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has given the Federal Government 11 days ultimatum to free its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, unconditionally.
IPOB Head, Directorate of State, Mazi Chika Edoziem, said the Southeast would be totally locked down daily, if Kanu is not released before August 9, 2021.
Edoziem, in a statement issued yesterday, explained that the lockdown is to ensure government released Kanu “hale and hearty.”
Nnamdi Kanu writes British Commission, demands consular assistance, unconditional release.

The statement reads partly: “The global community knows that self-determination is not a crime, the Nigerian government equally know that self-determination does not constitute any known offence stipulated in their constitution and therefore do not have any case against the leader of IPOB, Mazi Kanu.
“In recognition of the above fact and truth, the Directorate of State of IPOB, demands herewith an unconditional and immediate release of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on or before the 8th day of August 2021, failing which we shall commence a weekly Lockdown of Biafra land starting from 9th August, 2021.
“For the avoidance of doubt this total lockdown of Biafra land will take place every Monday until our leader is released unconditionally.
“This weekly lockdown is simply one of the measures we shall put in place to ensure that our leader is released hale and hearty.”
Kanu is currently detained under the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
He has been in DSS custody after he was rearrested and repatriated from an African country, believed to be Kenya.
Upon his return, Justice Binta Nyako of an Abuja Federal High Court had remanded him in custody of the secret police.
On Monday, DSS, however, failed to produce the Biafra agitator in court due to reasons of logistics.
