An armed group which has identified itself as the ‘Angry Vipers’ has issued a 21-days ultimatum to Southeast Governors and politicians to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), or get ready to die.
The group vowed to declare all Southeast governors, Senators, traditional rulers, and other political office holders dead if Kanu is not released within 21 days.
Their ultimatum was disclosed in a video of what resembled a ritual where the vipers sang and made incantations.
The video has gone viral online currently.
In the video, the group also called on traditional rulers to ensure Kanu’s release and that Fulanis vacate the Southeast.
A voice speaking in the video said: ‘We The angry Viper has noticed that Southeast governors, Senators, local government Chairman have concluded to play pranks with the lives of youths of the Eastern region.
‘We, hereby, give you 21 days ultimatum to ensure that Nnamdi Kanu is released unconditionally and resigns from the opposition without further delays.
‘Failure to do so, we shall have no other option than to declare you wanted, dead.
”All kings and chiefs who have decided to reduce themselves to used sanitary pads and all themselves to be toiled about with by uncircumcised Fulanis due to your idiocy and bribery; we the Angry Vipers are giving you 21 days to leave our land unless Nnamdi Kanu is released.’
Kanu is currently locked up by the Department of State Services, DSS, following his rearrest in Kenya and repatriation to Nigeria.
