IPOB Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Finally Replies To UK Government Over Asylum Grant

Information reaching our news desk now has it that the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has replied to the Government of United kingdom over a report that it has granted its members who are being persecuted an asylum in the United Kingdom, Kanu who spoke through IPOB's Publicity Secretary Emma Powerful, commended them for taking that bold decision but he equally reminded them, that its members need referendum and not asylum.

Though, Nigerian Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed had earlier condemned that move by UK's Government, adding that the act is capable of undermining their efforts in fighting insecurity and terrorism in the country, he further said that, the government of United Kingdom has disrespected Nigeria.

Members of different separatist groups in Nigeria, who are agitating for a Republic of Biafra have faced ill-treatment such as arrest, torture and detention, including killings in the hands of Nigerian Security operatives, and this type of treatment didn't start today, it started with the formation of Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) during Chief Olusegun Obasanjo's administration and since then the story has remained the same.
