The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has told members of the group to “capture” Abia State governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, to face trial for the alleged role he played in the killing of #ENDSARS protesters in the state.
Kanu, in a statement he personally signed, ordered that Ikpeazu must be apprehended anywhere he was sighted.
The statement read in part: “Okezie Ikpeazu is in Asaga village, Ohafia. He is hiding in the house of his Chief of Staff, one Ukpai Agwu Ukpai.
“Our youths in Ohafia are hereby instructed to capture him alive to face trial for the numerous murders he committed including the death of protesters yesterday in Aba. On no account must he be allowed to leave Ohafia alive. Its an order. “
He urged the #EndSARS protesters not to give up, adding “the oppressors will try every option including shooting to quell the protest, but nobody should be deterred.”
“We call on every youth, man and woman to join the protests now. This is the time everybody should identify with this movement to rescue our collective future and destiny from suffocation,” Kanu said.
