The leader of the banned Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has said “Biafrans” do not support injustice, Concise News reports.
This news medium understands that the pro-Biafra leader said this in a reaction to the proscription of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) known as Shiites by the Federal Government.
The leader of the group Ibrahim El-Zakzaky has been in detention since 2015 with a court recently ruling for his release for treatment in India.
Speaking recently in a broadcast on Radio Biafra, Kanu said that “Biafrans” do not support injustice.
“We are Biafrans, we have a soul. We reject injustice. You cannot regard yourself as a human being if you support injustice,” he noted.
“El-Zakzaky must be released. The tagging of the Shi’a group as a terrorist cannot hold water.
“What is the difference between the judgment that the other high court gave about El-zakzaky’s freedom and the one banning Shiites?”
According to him, “The Shi’a group have done nothing wrong. They must be freedom in Africa. I mean total freedom. You cannot determine who you give freedom of association to.
“You must obey court orders even if you don’t like it. The constitution of the zoo allows freedom of religion.
“What did El-zakzaky do? What did the Shiites group do to be tagged a terrorist group?
“Shi’a or Shiites group is not a terrorist group and it can never be.”
