Reactions have continued to trail a court ruling revoking the bail of the leader of outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, which also ordered for his re-arrest.
The court ruling has been condemned by the Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL).
The group expressed its disappointment over the court ruling through a statement issued by its Deputy Leader and Director of Operations, Biafra Broadcasting Service Ogar Takon.
The statement by Takon reads; “The judicial system is regarded as the last hope of the common man in every nation, but in Nigeria, the reverse is the case, it is not. Instead, the court harbors corrupt judges worst than politicians”.
“The court ought to have considered the illegal invasion of Umuahia by men of the Nigerian Army during Operations Python Dance that forced the IPOB leader to flee for safety.”
Takon also challenged the Federal Government to go after and arrest the leaders of the Boko Haram sect.
He said; “It will make sense if the court orders the arrest of Boko Haram Leaders for trial”, he continued.
“Because Biafra agitators are visible, they feel they can exercise power over us. They are simply encouraging us to go underground because no one would want to be handled by the enemies in Nigeria.
“They should know the implications of we going underground, it will be terrible and disastrous even more than militancy,” Takon warned.
