Nnamdi Kanu Denounces Violence, Promises Peace in Southeast Nigeria

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has firmly distanced himself from the recent spate of violence plaguing the southeastern region of Nigeria. Speaking in Abuja following a court session where his bail was denied, Kanu vowed that those responsible for the violence, purportedly in the name of IPOB, would face consequences.

Asserting his commitment to restoring peace, Kanu stated, “Anybody committing crime cannot go free. I swear it. Anybody committing crime in the east cannot go free.” He attributed the persistence of violence to his detention by the Department of State Services (DSS), suggesting that his release would quell unrest in the region.

Kanu emphasized his readiness to bring about peace, proclaiming, “If I were to be outside, nobody can try this.” He expressed suspicion that some individuals within the government might be complicit in fueling insecurity for personal gain.

Addressing those engaging in violence, Kanu issued a stern warning, declaring, “Anybody involved in any form of violence in the East in the name of IPOB is a goner, and they know it.” He assured that once released, he would swiftly restore order, stating, “Let me come out of this mess, only two minutes, there will be peace in the East.”
