BREAKING: Violence will cease in southeast once I’m released, says Nnamdi Kanu

Detained leader of the proscribed separatist group, the Indigenous People’s of Biafra (IPOB), Nnmadi Kanu, has pledged to work to stop the current spate of violence in the southeast once he regains freedom.

Kanu, who was denied bail on Tuesday by a Federal High Court in Abuja, spoke shortly after the court’s proceedings.

The IPOB leaders said: “Anybody committing crime cannot go free. I swear it. Anybody committing crime in the east cannot go free. 

“They are doing it because I am in the DSS ( custody). If I were to be outside, nobody can try this . I suspect that some people in government are complicit. They are making money with the insecurity. 

“They know if Nnmadi Kanu is outside, in two minutes this nonsense will stop. Who is the bagger or idiot that will speak when I am talking.

“That, I will give an order in the East, who is the idiot  that will counter it ? Nobody can. I am Nnmadi Kanu. Rubbish!. 

“Anybody involved in any form of violence in the East in the name of IPOB is a goner and they know it. Let me come out of this mess, only two minutes, there will be peace in the East,” he said.
