The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Wednesday 30, appealed to South-East residents to accept the outcome of Thursday’s ruling on a bail application by Nnamdi Kanu.
IPOD said the appeal became necessary in view of the anticipation that the outcome would likely go against Mr. Kanu.
In a press statement made available to journalists by IPOB’s media director, Comrade Emma Powerful, he called on South-East residents not to embark on any form of protest.
He declared that “we are not expecting anything good from the Nigeria court because President Muhammadu Buhari has since ordered the judiciary not to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“We are not expecting anything positive from the court tomorrow, after all, Buhari has made it very clear that no court will grant Nnamdi Kanu and others bail and since then the order is effective.
“Significantly, justice Ademola who granted him bail on 17th December 2015 is now facing allegations of corruption and he was suspended.
“Also Justice Shuaibu who granted him bail was also accused of corruption and now transferred out of FCT territory, while Justice John Tsoho who gives conflicting judgment in this same case is still sitting at federal high court up till date, despite the petition against him before the NJC.
“The federal government and the defense headquarters have sent soldiers to the south-east to rubbish the Amnesty International reports, which are causing confusion around Nigeria and the world.
“Therefore, we are advising every Biafran and IPOB members to keep calm because the soldiers sent here came with a master plan to kill unarmed members and drop some sophisticated gadgets on top of the dead ones in order to rubbish the Amnesty International reports.
“Our people should accept whatever may be the outcome of the tomorrow’s court because already they have been told what to do.
“Everybody should stay quiet tomorrow to avoid unnecessary killing of unarmed civilians who came to celebrate; therefore no celebration of any kind.”
