In joyous euphoria, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have finally reacted to the Court of Appeal ruling which had ultimately discharged and acquitted its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The Eastern Updates had reported that the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal in a unanimous verdict on Thursday had completely acquitted Kanu of all terrorism charges against him and thereby discharged him.

Reacting, IPOB said the ruling has shown that some judges are good and they know the law.
In a chat with Newmsen, POB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, said the judges know that Kanu did not commit the crime.
According to Powerful: “We are happy to hear that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been acquitted and discharged. That is to show that some judges are good and know the law and understand that Nnamdi Kanu did not commit crimes and his extraordinary rendition was very illegal.
“Biafrans both home and abroad including our friends should rejoice because Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama has done it again. Biafra realisation is the next target and nothing will stop IPOB from achieving Biafra freedom.
“If you know you are criminal terrorising our people just run because you are going to meet your Waterloo.”
In another report, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has declared that contrary to wide speculations, it has no plan to disrupt the election in Igboland coming up in 2023.
In a press statement which was obtained by The Eastern Updates, the media and publicity secretary of the group, Emma Powerful, explained that there is no truth in any information circulating on alleged plans to disrupt the election in 2023 in Igboland.
The group rather went on to accuse the federal government of Nigeria of masterminding insecurity in the South East, with the hope of causing fear and accusing IPOB of their deeds.
