The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said he will expel members of the organization who pay the Nigerian police for bail.
According to him, paying for bail was giving in to extortion and emboldening the police to continue raiding homes to abduct members of the organization.
Kanu reiterated to the people that extortion will not cease until they stopped giving in to the pressure they faced from police.
He explained that IPOB members in Anambra State in particular were at high risk of being arrested due to his declaration to boycott the upcoming November 18 election in the state.
Kanu warned while addressing his followers in Anambra: “Anybody in IPOB that gives money to the zoo police for their bail will be expelled from IPOB. The zoo police are using IPOB to make money because some people are not mentally tough enough to resist them until our dedicated legal team arrives to secure their release.
“The more we give these Hausa-Fulani illiterate, primitive parasites wearing zoo police uniform money, the more they keep raiding our homes to abduct us because they know some of us will pay.
“It is not the duty of IPOB family members to sustain illiterate, hungry and poorly paid zoo policemen. We [IPOB] are agitating for our freedom so there is no way we can be handing out our hard earned money to these Northern parasites and criminals in police uniforms like we committed any crime,” he said.
Kanu explained that IPOB has a legal team with excellent expertise, whose responsibility is to facilitate the release of arrested IPOB members wherever they are in Nigeria.
He said the legal team was dedicated and work around the clock to ensure IPOB detainees were released regardless of where they were arrested and detained.
Kanu urged IPOB members to remain steadfast and unshaken, especially when the government was using all available means to jeopardize their agitation for Biafran secession.
“The Nigeria Police Force is a criminal organization, run by criminals for the benefit of Northern Arewa criminals.
“All members and supporters should remain fearless before her enemy, Nigeria, even with guns pointed at them,” he said.
