The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has said that President Muhammdu Buhari doesn’t want to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu because he was told that IPOB has been defeated.
The group said saboteurs and traitors within its ranks are the ones forcing Buhari not to release Kanu.
In a statement on Sunday, the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Mr Emma Powerful, claimed that the alleged saboteurs and traitors held a meeting with Buhari and advised the President not to release Kanu.

The statement also claimed that the “enemies of the freedom struggle,” after meeting the President in Aso Rock, misinformed him that IPOB and the Eastern Security Network had been defeated.
The group, therefore, advised the President not be deceived by what it described as “blacklegs and sacked members of the movement,” who are feeding him with fake information about IPOB and the ESN for pecuniary interests.
It also cautioned the Federal Government against the dangers of its continuous interruption with the judicial processes in the case against Kanu, saying if it was sure of its allegations against the IPOB leader, it should not be afraid of allowing the court to operate freely and independently.
It stated that Kanu would defeat the Federal Government in any court of law, both local and international, because it had no case against him, adding that the only thing that could save the country was a “referendum date for the people of Biafra, because the world is keenly watching.”
