Following his meeting with United Nation’s officials in Geneva, Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has reportedly asked the UN for urgent action against the rights abuses inflicted on Biafrans while raising concerns over the detention of Activist, Omoleye Sowore, and leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh El-Zakzaky.
A statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, reveals that Kanu, with his deputy, Mazi Uche Mefor and Head of Directorate of State, Mazi Chika Edoziem held a series of meetings with various United Nations officials where he presented Biafra’s plight to the UN officials.
According to him, Kanu’s emergence from the meeting was met with chants of eulogy by a congregation of Biafrans. Emma Powerful said Kanu asked for the need to support the undeniable right of Biafrans to self-determination as enshrined in law, statute and various UN conventions.
“Every issue concerning our people is now before the various arms and agencies of the United Nations. Our case will no longer be ignored.
The case of RUGA settlement was also raised and the august body was left in doubt that Biafrans will never allow Fulani terror settlements in Biafraland.
“Incessant killing of Biafrans in their own land by terrorist Fulani herdsmen, extortion and killing of Biafran motorcyclists and commercial drivers by Nigerian army and police over refusal to give #50 bribery.”
