Biafra News Today on Nnamdi Kanu release , court Appearance date can be found on Ejes Gist News
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has begun the New Year combatively, as one might expect.
The group demanded that the Federal Government unconditionally release its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu, ahead of his next court appearance on January 18, 19 and 20.
“We want to declare that the Nigerian government and security agencies will have no peace of mind unless our leader is released,” IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, said in a statement released on January 5.
However, the group warned that people in the Southeast geopolitical zone, which it prefers to refer to as “Biafra land,” would face difficulties. Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo are the five states that make up the zone.
“Fulani cows will be prohibited in Biafra land beginning April 2022,” according to the statement. “Those in the animal husbandry industry must switch to our native cow as soon as possible.”
“In regards to stopping the Nigerian national anthem in our schools, we want every school to begin reading the Biafra national anthem,” the group added. The Biafra national anthem will soon be distributed to every school.”
IPOB drew attention in October 2021 with a statement outlining its plan to regulate the cattle industry and cow meat consumption in the Southeast.
Mazi Chika Edoziem, the head of the Directorate of State (DOS), had announced a ban on the rearing and c0onsumption of “Fulani cows” in Southeast states, stating that the ban would take effect six months after the announcement.
“From that date forward, no more Fulani cows shall be allowed into Biafra land for any reason, not for burials, title taking, weddings, or any other reason,” he says. He went on to say that only cows bred in the territory would be “consumed and used for all ceremonies in Biafra land” from then on.
The group has now demonstrated that it meant what it said by announcing that the cow ban will go into effect in April, roughly six months after the initial announcement.
The group’s plans for enforcing the cow and anthem bans in the five states are unclear. It already has a poor track record of enforcing its bad ideas.
IPOB’s ban could be enforced by authorities similar to those who disrupted the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in many parts of the Southeast in September 2021 as a result of the group’s illegal sit-at-home order. The snarl was unforgivable.
IPOB, ironically, continues to deny being labeled a terrorist organization while speaking and acting in a terroristic manner.
