Nnamdi Kanu’s younger brother, Prince Emmanuel Kanu, has allegedly claimed that any attempt by the federal government to re-arrest his brother, Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, will mean the FG is arresting over 70 million Biafrans.
This comes after news broke that the federal government has commenced process to get the bail granted the IPOB leader by Justice Binta Nyako revoked.
The government alleged that Kanu has flagrantly flouted his bail conditions.
Prince Emmanuel Kanu who spoke recently at Umuahia in Abia state on behalf of the family said his elder brother was not afraid of being re-arrested as that would help Biafra come quicker than imagined, Daily Post reports.
“In fact that will facilitate and fast track the coming of Biafra. On a more serious note, any attempt to re-arrest Nnamdi Kanu will spell doom for Nigeria, the nation will never be the same again.
“Re-arresting the IPOB leader means re-arresting over 70 million Biafrans. Nnamdi Kanu is not the target, he is the symbol of Biafra today, arresting him is like arresting the whole Biafrans,” he claimed.
He also lambasted the FG for seeking rearrest of the IPOB leader over the formation of Biafra Secret Service, BSS. According to him, the federal government cannot make Kanu abandon his agitation or Biafra.
“In fact, Nnamdi Kanu remains resolute and very committed to the struggle.”
“Whatever you do in terms of intimidation spurs him on the more.These are the type of things he likes so much. So, re-arresting him will make him stronger and quicken the realization of Biafra and will also spell doom for the nation.”
“The Federal Government’s current threat will never make Nnamdi Kanu to be afraid to stand trial for whatever reason. Any day, anytime, he is ready to stand trial because he is a man who has committed no crime.
“He is more than happy to stand trial and challenge whosoever that comes up. He is not afraid of going to court, he is not also afraid of going to prison.
“He was in prison and issued the sit-at-home order and people obeyed, so, his going back to prison will make things worse for the Federal Government.
“Nnamdi Kanu and Arewa youths that gave the Igbo in the North quit notice, who between the two committed treasonable felony? It was the Arewa youths and since then, nothing has happened to them.”
