The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has said that issues concerning his people were before the various arms and agencies of the United Nations.
The Meeting Was very Productive according to Nnamdi Kanu
He said Biafra’s case would no longer be ignored.
The group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, in a statement on Thursday, said Kanu’s emergence from the meeting was met with chants of eulogy by a congregation of Biafrans.
It said Kanu demanded urgent action against the numerous rights abuses inflicted daily upon Biafrans and the need to support the undeniable right of Biafrans to self-determination as enshrined in law, statute and various UN conventions.
“Every issue concerning our people is now before the various arms and agencies of the United Nations. Our case will no longer be ignored.
“Incessant killing of Biafrans in their own land by terrorist Fulani herdsmen, extortion and killing of Biafran motorcyclists and commercial drivers by Nigerian army and police over refusal to give #50 bribery.”
“We have successfully presented Biafra plight to the United Nations officials, demanding urgent action against the numerous rights abuses inflicted daily upon Biafrans and the need to support the inalienable and undeniable right of Biafrans to self-determination as enshrined in law, statute and various UN conventions.
“The case of RUGA settlement by stealth was also raised and the august body was left in doubt that indigenous Biafrans will never allow Fulani terror settlements in Biafraland.“Every issue concerning our people is now before the various arms and agencies of the United Nations. Our case will no longer be ignored.”
The statement said Kanu, accompanied by his deputy, Mazi Uche Mefor, Head of Directorate of State, Mazi Chika Edoziem and other top echelons of the struggle, also raised the continued illegal detention of Omoleye Sowore, the relentless persecution of the members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria led by Sheikh El-Zakzaky, among other issues.
Finally, Nnamdi Kanu took his twitter and wrote;
I thank our hosts, United Nations officials for a productive meeting today at the UN office in Geneva, Switzerland.
