IPOB’s Head of Directorate of State, Chika Edozien, in a statement made available to The Guardian in Enugu yesterday, also warned all those who allegedly contributed to the arrest of Kanu to continue praying that nothing untoward happens to him.
The group opposed the October adjourned date for the continuation of Kanu’s trial, stressing that it would not allow him to remain in custody until that date.
It stated that the lockdown would take place ‘every Monday until Kanu is released, stressing that the measure was one way to ensure the unconditional release of Kanu, hale and hearty.
The statement reads which was obtained by The Eastern Updates in part: ‘The Directorate of State of IPOB is very much aware of the strategy of the government of Nigeria to subject Kanu to media trial and to convict him in the public before giving that public conviction an official stamp of the judicial system.’
