Group of women in Abia state on Friday raised Biafra flag to protest along some major streets in Aba over the continuous detention of the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government despite Appeal Court judgement granting the freedom rights activist unconditional release.
Court of Appeal, Abuja, had discharged Nnamdi Kanu in October and a federal high court in Umuahia, Abia state, ordered FG to return Kanu to Kenya.
FG has yet to obey any of the court orders and thus filed a stay of execution of judgement before same Appeal Court in November.
The Appeal Court granted the Federal Government stay of execution of its judgement.
FG also proceeded to Supreme Court to challenge the rulling of the Appeal Court on its judgement that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has no case to answer.
Inscription in one of the banners the protesting Aba women held reads: “Buhari’s regime must obey court’s order”.
The continuous detention of the IPOB leader has led to several civil disobedience and disturbances in the Southeast states marked as Biafra land by armed and unarmed secessionist groups.
One of the factional leader of the Biafra Republic agitation, Simon Ekpa declared five days sit-at-home between last week Friday till Wednesday this week which led to several deaths in Enugu, Imo, Ebonyi and Anambra states.
Prominent among the five days sit-at-home killings included traders, passengers, commercial bus drivers and residents killed last Saturday morning at New Market in Ngwo area of Enugu State.
Elder brother of Nollywood movie star, Osita Iheme was also killed in Imo state at the beginning of the five days sit-at-home last week Friday.
Many have accused Simon Ekpa; of working with enemies to tarnish the image of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu over the bloody sit-at-home he ordered.
Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor on Tuesday proceeded to Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to file a suit against Simon Ekpa, requesting his arrest over the sit-at-home killings in Southeast states and false declaration.
Simon Ekpa who is believed to be living in Finland on Wednesday in a live broadcast accused Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor of conflict of interest.
He threatened to take legal action against Ifeanyi Ejiofor when the actualization of Biafra Republic is achieved if the IPOB lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor is still around.
