The Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami SAN has warned the members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) to stay away from the court trial of their embattled leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Emma Powerful, the spokesman of the proscribed group in a statement revealed that they are ready to die and the government can go ahead and prepare more cells and mortuaries if they decide to kill them.
“The statement read: You should expect Biafrans in Abuja and nobody can stop us or prevent us from being in court tomorrow. Nnamdi Kanu is our leader and we cannot afford to abandon him because he did not abandon us.
“IPOB members should move to Abuja and those living in Abuja must be there to show solidarity with our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and for Nigeria to know that he is our own.
“Malami and his co-conspirators should prepare to kill all of us tomorrow, and every IPOB member must behave well.
“This is to show the world that we are coming, (and) for this court to know that we are disciplined and cultured. Our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has laid the foundation of IPOB well and we must follow his teachings,”
“We will be there tomorrow. Let Malami clean his prisons and mortuary for our people tomorrow. The world will see them tomorrow. You cannot beat a child and force the child not to cry, that is what they are trying to do to us and we must cry until the world hears us. Nnamdi Kanu remains our leader, no other person.”
