Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu’s bail condition a ploy to cage him – Igbo groups

Mixed reactions have continued to trail the bail granted the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

DAILY POST reports that Kanu was granted strigent bail conditions by an Abuja Federal High Court presided over by Justice Binta Nyako.

In a reaction, the Igbo Women Assembly, IWA, ‎ Said “the conditionalities of his bail is funny and designed to cage him and imprison him the more, it smacks of paranoia on the side of government, we are not excited.”

“We are happy he is out though; we wonder why they left him alone. The struggle is just beginning. They should release all the others as well”, Chief Mrs. Maria Okwor, ‎leader of the IWA said.

Similarly, the Igbo Youth Movement declared that “Those who packaged the bail conditions are clearly afraid of the big masquerade they have unwittingly created, in their mistaken attempt to crush the uprising of the oppressed younger generation.”

The group, speaking through its founder, Evang. Elliot Ugochukwu-Uko, stated that “From the bail conditions we can see that the half hazard bail is designed to entrap Nnamdi and weaken IPOB. We demand the release of all the others.”

Similarly, the Eastern Consultative Assembly stated that “The fear of the popularity of Nnamdi Kanu has given birth to a laughable bail condition, which looks like imprisonment outside of the prison wall.

“The government is clearly afraid of the electrifying popularity of Kanu that would have shut down all the markets, schools and offices in Igbo Land on the arrival of Kanu in Enugu. Infact, the Enugu airport would not have survived the surge of human crowd that would have welcomed Kanu in their millions.”

“All the same, we thank the international community for the pressure it mounted on the F.G. we expect all the others to be released and the government to engage them in dialogue immediately”, Rev. Fr John Odey, the Publicity Secretary of the ECA said.
