The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has hit out at the federal government over the reported release of 101 Boko Haram members from Ikoyi Custodial Centre.

IPOB noted that the development came at a time the same government is detaining its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, and other members in various detention facilities across the country.

The group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, in a statement on Wednesday said, “This Federal Government covertly sponsors and supports terrorists who have massacred a lot of people by the way they colluded with the terrorists to free their members from Kuje Prison a few months ago.

“The same government has unconditionally released the remaining terrorists from Ikoyi Prison.”

He added, “These Boko Haram terrorists detained in Ikoyi, Lagos were never taken to court since their detention in 2019 and we are aware that no court freed or granted them bail but they were released through presidential or cabals’ order.”

Powerful described Kanu’s continued detention alongside other IPOB members as further confirmation that the Igbos are not needed in Nigeria.

He, therefore, called on the government to release Kanu and others unconditionally the way it did to the Boko Haram members.
