Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, has warned the Buhari dictatorship that there will be more trouble for his repressive regime if Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB], dies in the illegal custody of the Department of State Services [DSS].
The outspoken Priest made this known on Sunday, November 14, whilst calling on the congregation to pray for the release of Nnamdi Kanu.
Whilst commending IPOB for the cancellation of the sit-at-home protest every Monday, he said that the protest was becoming a problem to the South-East people rather than a solution.
Recall that IPOB, speaking through its Publicity Secretary Emma Powerful had suspended the sit-at-home protest every Monday and vowed to deal with anyone found enforcing it anywhere in the South-East.
Mbaka thanked the intervention of the relevant stakeholders who ensured that the weekly lockdown in the entire region is lifted.
“The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, the people’s hero, is clearly expressing his empathy with the South-East people over their travails. He understood what the Igbos are going through for his sake. That is why he said that nobody should stop anyone from going for their businesses every Monday.
“Let all of us continue to pray for Kanu’s release. Because if he dies inside that DSS cell, there’ll be more trouble. If he comes out alive, he’ll be a hero.
“We do not want him to die there. Because this matter is not his personal matter. It is something that concerns the suffering people. Nnamdi Kanu is not telling the government to do anything for him; he is speaking up for the entire Igbo people. So we have to do everything possible to ensure that it is well with him.
“The other day, many people were making comments that they saw me in Abuja. Yes, that is because if I am with you, I am with you. I am not going to tell you why I was in Abuja, but anything that will bring emancipation to my people, I will do it. There are people working every day to ensure Nnamdi Kanu is released, and we cannot achieve that by sitting at home.
“That the sit-at-home was cancelled does not mean it is over. The people were suffering. The truth is that most wealthy people do not have businesses here. We were punishing ourselves. We thank Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, may God bless him.”
