Nnamdi Kanu: Why we’ll not join July 26 protest at High Court – BNL

The Biafra Nations League, BNL, has announced it would not partake in the intended protest at the Federal High Court in demand for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

The group added that IPOB has not reached out to it on their next line of action.

BNL’s Head of Operations, Henry Edet, made the announcement on Sunday in Ikot Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State.

There are rumors that members of several secessionist organizations would demonstrate at the Abuja High Court on July 26 to demand Nnamdi Kanu’s release.

“I saw on some YouTube channels that we will be participating in the demonstration, but I’m not sure. As the chief of operations, I am in charge of any action that my team wishes to take.

“For now my group have not disclosed to me that we shall be participating in protest anywhere.

“The IPOB leadership has not reached out to us on that, so we can’t be faster than them, “.

The group said it won’t condemn any action the IPOB takes in ensuring that Kanu was free, while it also advised IPOB to look beyond protests.

The Federal Government had recently threatened to go after IPOB collaborators including other separatists groups such as BNL and the group said it would not be deterred by the threat.
