According to iReporter, the former militants under the guise of Niger Delta Peoples Democratic Front (NDPDF) have threatened not to sit and watch President Buhari torture and enslave its people.
This threat was dished out by the ex-militants during the weekend in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital. The head of the group, Precious Iyoyo (aka General Playboy) advised President Muhammadu Buhari to release Kanu immediately, in order to cut-down the rising tension in the country.
Based on his statement, the continued detention of Kanu after a competent court had granted him bail was provocative and dictatorial. He also ordered the immediate pullout of the military personnel drafted to Niger Bridge in Onitsha, Anambra state, to enable free flow of traffic for the “innocent citizens of South-South and South East.”
Iyoyo added that the ex warlords would not be intimidated while their brothers and sisters from the South-South and South East geo-political zones “are chased, tortured or enslaved with impunity in our land.”
“The Nigerian government is dangerously pushing us to the wall. The unprovoked mass shooting and killing of our brothers and sisters will no longer be tolerated,” he said.
The NDPDF leader gave his word that his group would back and assist the Biafra agitation, and urged people from the two regions who are sabotaging the agitation to have a rethink.
The director of radio Biafra and leader of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu is currently facing treasonable felony and terrorism charges in a Federal High court sitting in Abuja. He was taken into custody and was granted bail but had since remained in custody.
The ex Niger Delta militants also warned the Federal Government to prevail on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to leave their former leader, Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, alone.
