The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has hailed the judgment of the Court of Appeal Abuja which discharged and acquitted its Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Thursday.
According to IPOB, the judgment showed that some judges are still upright and reliable.
IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful in a press statement commended the court of Appeal for the landmark judgment.
The statement read in part: “Yes, we are happy to hear that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been acquitted and discharged. That is to show that some judges are good and know the law and understand that Nnamdi Kanu did not commit crimes and his extraordinary rendition was very illegal.”
IPOB said that Biafrans all over the world are celebrating the landmark judgment.
“Biafrans both home and abroad including our friends should rejoice because Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama has done it again. Biafra realisation is the next target and nothing will stop IPOB from achieving Biafran freedom.”
The statement further read: “If you know you are a criminal terrorising our people just run because you are going to meet your Waterloo.”
