Nnamdi Kanu insist his detention reason behind violence in South East



Nnamdi Kanu 1 e1505854386334

The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has insisted that his continuous detention in the custody of Department of State Services (DSS) remains the reason behind the spate of violence in the South East geopolitical zone.

Kanu spoke in Abuja immediately after the court rose on Tuesday after he was denied bail.

The IPOB leader noted that the violence in the region remained because he was being held in the custody of the Department of State Services.

He however vowed that those behind the violence, in the name of being IPOB members, would not be spared.

Kanu vowed that if released, there would be peace in the entire South-East.

He 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 Nnamdi Kanu is outside, in two minutes, this nonsense will stop. Who is the bagger or idiot that will speak when I am talking? I will give an order in the East who is the idiot that I will give an order that will counter it? Nobody can. I am Nnamdi Kanu.

“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.”
