Don’t exploit IPOB’s name to score political points – Nnamdi Kanu’s family warns



In response to a press conference implicating Governor Alex Otti of Abia State in allegedly supporting IPOB to incite fear before the State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal’s ruling on Friday, October 6, the Kanu family firmly refuted the claims, deeming them entirely false and unfounded.

Speaking with journalists on Friday night, Emma Kanu, the younger brother of the IPOB leader, denounced the allegations as an act of desperation.

He emphasized that if there are leadership issues within the state, they should be addressed directly without implicating IPOB in their state of despair.

“What we are interested in is the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who the federal government is still incarcerating in spite of court order to release him.

Those who sponsored the press conference must have ulterior motives, their intention being to rubbish Otti, but if Otti has won election, he has won election and there’s nothing anybody can do about it, but they should not bring IPOB into the issue.

For what reason will IPOB attack any judge for doing his work? They should stop using IPOB’s name to score cheap political goal. Those saying Otti was sponsoring IPOB to cause trouble in the state, Which IPOB? What proof do they have to that?

“Over the years, IPOB has not been interested in their election, we don’t meddle into elections. Our target is referendum and the freeing of Kanu and stop the flouting of court orders, that’s all”.

– Nnamdi Kanu seeks negotiation with FG over ongoing trial
– Kanu’s lawyer moves two applications before the Federal High Court
– FG’s counsel says defendant should approach Attorney General for negotiation

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has expressed willingness to negotiate with the Federal Government over his ongoing trial.

Through his counsel, Alloy Ejimakor, Kanu informed the Federal High Court in Abuja of his intention to seek negotiation under Section 17 of the Federal High Court Act.

Ejimakor had earlier moved two applications before the court, including one objecting to the jurisdiction of the court. If the applications are denied, Kanu’s lawyer plans to invoke Section 17, which promotes reconciliation and amicable settlement among parties.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government’s counsel, Adegboyega Awomolo, stated that the defendant should approach the Attorney General of the Federation for negotiation.

Justice Binta Nyako, the presiding judge, clarified that the court’s role is to hear cases, not to solicit negotiations. Kanu has been in DSS custody since June 2021, facing terrorism-related charges levelled against him by the government.

His lawyer’s latest move may signal a potential shift in the case’s trajectory.
