IPOB vowed that no amount of threats can stop its members and other Biafrans from flooding the court to witness the court proceedings.
Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami, had warned members of the secessionist organisation to stay away from the court sitting which holds at the Federal High Court, Abuja on 26 July 2021.
The Minister also warned against the display of branded IPOB T-shirts or caps around the court premises.
Nnamdi Kanu, who was reportedly arrested in Kenya was extradited to Nigeria a few weeks ago and kept in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
Monday 26th July 2021 will determine the next move to take to actualise Biafra, Mr. Powerful insists.
If you call us Nigerians, you cannot continue to kill us, disenfranchised us, demean us, unleash untold hardship on Ndi Igbo and yet, stop us from demanding our rights to self-determination.
Ndi Igbo and IPOB will storm Abuja to witness the court proceedings and to show solidarity to our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Nigeria.
The Government cannot beat a child and force him or her not to cry. IPOB has every right to be in court on that day,” Emma Powerful, IPOB’s mouthpiece, told Vanguard.
“Anybody who doesn’t want to go to court is free to do so but Mallami and Federal Government of Nigeria have no powers or rights to stop anybody from going to Abuja. “One thing they forget is that it’s not about Nnamdi Kanu, it’s about Biafra. The issue of Biafra agitation has since gone beyond Nnamdi Kanu. It’s now an unstoppable mass movement.
“The truth is that not just IPOB members but thousands of Biafrans and their sympathizers will flood Abuja on Monday to show solidarity to our leader, Nnamdi Kanu. He is only a freedom fighter and Nigeria cannot stop people from identifying with him. “So, if they want to shoot or kill people they should prepare very well because they will have enough to kill or arrest.
“We are not afraid and can’t be afraid at this point of our journey when our freedom is at the threshold. We can’t abandon our leader. “The only thing is that we shall be very civil, organized and peaceful but we can’t be cowed. The world will see how they kill innocent citizens that day in Abuja,” he added.
