The struggle to break out of Nigeria took a new strategy on Tuesday the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) urged a review of the colonial boundaries by the international community.
A statement signed by the counsel to the detained leader of IPOB Nnamdi Kanu, Obidike Samuel said that the group has noticed that many of its members are placed on wanted list by the Department of State Services (DSS) even as many are being hounded and detained both at home and abroad.
It specifically mentioned Solomon Uchenna Egbo, a UK based activist, High Chief Okoh, Ndubuisi Arum and others.
It stated that no amount of intimidation would break the spirit of the group as the detention of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu has brought more unity to them than ever.
It therefore urged the international community to review all the colonial boundaries and allow the Biafra people to be free.
The statement reads in part:
“It has come to our notice that the Nigeria Department of State Services (DSS) are indiscriminately detaining and going after our brothers both at home and abroad.
“So many of them are on their wanted list. Currently on their list are Solomon Uchenna Egbo, UK based activist, High Chief Okoh, Mr Ndubuisi Arum and so many others that we can’t trace.
“Going after innocent people will not stop the quest for Biafra. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s illegal detention has brought more unity than anybody ever imagined. God has chosen him for this divine project bearing in mind that as His own child, he won’t fail.
