IPOB Petitions US Government Over Silence On Nnamdi Kanu’s ‘Abduction’ From Kenya, Ordeal Under Buhari Administration 


The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has called on the United States’ government to answer why it has kept mute over the extraordinary rendition of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya in June 2021 by the Nigerian government.

IPOB in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said that since Kanu was rearrested and returned to Nigeria, the President Joe Biden-led US government has not said or done anything on the matter, stressing that the US’s silence in the matter which affects over seventy million “Biafrans” is deafening. 

The Biafran group whose leader, Kanu has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since June 27, 2021 said that it learnt through history that it was the United States of America who acted as the world’s conscience to challenge some European countries after the World wars and compelled them to let their colonised African nations go with flags of independence from the 1950s.

“The contraption known as Nigeria is one of such countries that gained their false independence during that Era. Dear USA, we the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) call upon you today to complete the work you started then,” IPOB said.
IPOB said that African nations are still trapped in false amalgamation that were not germane to our ethnic makeups, and in the case of Nigeria, the colonial masters are still using their influence to oppress the Indigenous nations.

According to the group, “One such situation that has caused us to rise up and cry out. Nigeria is polluting our land through oil exploration and extraction and when we ask them to clean it up, they kill our people, raze down our communities, bribe our leaders and few politicians place other heavy burdens of oppression on us in order to shut us up.

“As if all the oppression is not enough, the Fulani terrorist herdsmen have entered Nigeria with a jihad agenda that has been supported by the Nigerian Fulani politicians. This Fulanised Nigeria government has extraordinarily renditioned the leader of The Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria. Mazi Nnamdi KANU is not a Nigeria citizen but has for a long time taken up British citizenship.

“But our questions to United States Of American government and the world most powerful Nations in the world and the Police of the free world are: Why did the US Government keep mute during the Biafra genocidal war by the Nigerian Government with support from Britain and her allies where over 5 million innocent Biafran lives were wasted between 1967 to 1970  and till date?

“Why did the US Government keep mute in the face of an extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian Government in violation of  international law and protocols? While still keeping him in their detention facilities?

“Why the US Government still kept mute in the face of continue illegal detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigeria Government and even after competent Courts in Nigeria (Abuja Appeal Court and Umuahia High Court) pronounced him discharged and acquitted since 13th October 2022 and October 27, 2022 respectively and thereby violating his human and fundamental rights?

“Why is the US Government still keeping mute and not prevail on the Nigerian Government to start the process of referendum for Biafra People to decide to remain or go their separate way based on self-determination principles?

“What is the US Government benefiting from the very corrupt and corruption ravaged Nigeria Governance system that warrants their long silence on the ongoing genocides against Biafrans and total disregard to international laws and protocols in the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu?”
IPOB threatened that “African and the gulf of Guinea and by extension the world will not know peace until the question of Biafra, Nigeria forced amalgamation and artificial borders created by colonial masters are addressed.”

The group further said that the world was watching the US government which it described as a supposed world upholder of democracy and human right protector, and a global police; saying that the US government must rise up and do the needful and redeem their image and integrity in the world.
