“I wish to commend and congratulate millions of IPOBians the world over, whose tenacity and exemplary steadfastness to the course is and will always remain a great source of joy and inspiration for me.
“It is noteworthy and very commendable, that despite the spirited antics of our adversaries, the struggle has gathered the desired, awareness, momentum, sympathy and outright support, way beyond our expectations”.
These accolades emanated from the detained leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu when some members of the group visited him at the prison custody. According to Kanu,
“Your total commitment to the struggle and your determination and focus as a well disciplined mass movement has gotten the attention of the world and frightened the enemy stiff.
“As our journey to the promised land progresses beautifully, since we left Egypt, it is important to always remind ourselves that our progeny will forever remain grateful to us for our many sacrifices today. We are almost there and as the oppressor panic, they unwittingly wobble from one blunder to another, time is running out and Pharaoh and his army clearly has no choice than to let my people go. I remain very proud of you all. Thank you”,
Kanu concluded in a press statement jointly signed by Dr. Clifford Iroanya and Emma Mmezu, spokespersons for the IPOB
