The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, says it will commence a “total lockdown” of the South-East if Nnmadi Kanu, its leader, is not produced for his next court appearance slated for 7 October 2021.
Kanu is facing charges bordering on treasonable felony brought against him by the federal government over his campaign for the Republic of Biafra.
He was released in April 2017 on health grounds but jumped bail after flouting some of the conditions given to him by the court.
