Leader of the indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mr. Nnamdi Kanu has commended his followers for continuing with the pro-Biafra agitation.
Kanu, who is facing criminal charges before a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja delivered his message through the group’s spokespersons.
According to IPOB spokespersons, Dr. Clifford C. Iroanya and Barr. Emma Mmezu, the detained Radio Biafra director gave the message during a solidarity visit to him in the prison.
“I wish to commend and congratulate millions of IPOBians the world over, whose tenacity and exemplary steadfastness to the course is and will always remain a great source of joy and inspiration for me.
“It is noteworthy and very commendable, that despite the spirited antics of our adversaries, the struggle has gathered the desired, awareness, momentum, sympathy and outright support, way beyond our expectations”.
According to Kanu, “Your total commitment to the struggle and your determination and focus as a well disciplined mass movement has gotten the attention of the world and frightened the enemy stiff.
“As our journey to the promised land progresses beautifully, since we left Egypt, it is important to always remind ourselves that our progeny will forever remain grateful to us for our many sacrifices today. We are almost there and as the oppressor panic, they unwittingly wobble from one blunder to another, time is running out and Pharaoh and his army clearly has no choice than to let my people go. I remain very proud of you all. Thank you”, Kanu concluded in a press statement jointly signed by Iroanya and Mmezu.
