Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned the Nigerian government against harassing clergymen and women praying for the protection of its detained leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The group, in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful also warned against humiliating and intimidating its leader and members, insisting that Kanu is not evil but a special gift from God.
It noted that prayers by the clerics, including Rev. Fr. Ejikeme Mbaka of Adoration Ministries, Enugu; and Rev. Fr. of Ebube Mmunso Ministry, Uke in Idemili, Anambra State had turned Nigeria and its leadership into confusion.
It stressed that people should not be harrassed as a result of their religious views, insisting that Nigeria is not for a particular sect.
The statement partly reads, “We wish to commend men and women of God who devoted their precious time and energy to pray for the protection of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU who has been incarcerated in the DSS custody in Abuja since June 2021.
“The prayers of these men of God have turned Nigeria and its leadership into confusion since the beginning of this year 2022.
“We realise that the Fulani controlled-federal government and its security agencies are confused as a result of the intense prayers of these men of God including Rev. Father Ejikeme Mbaka of Adoration Ministries Enugu; and Reverend father of Ebube Mmunso Ministry, Uke in Idemili LGA Anambra State.
“We call other men and women of God Almighty who hear what God is saying to join others in telling government to stop humiliating and intimidating Mazi Nnamdi KANU and IPOB members because Mazi Nnamdi KANU is not evil but a special gift from God Almighty but unfortunately, Nigerians don’t appreciate what they have.
“Again, we are warming DSS to stop intimidating and humiliating men and women of God Almighty because they spoke about Mazi Nnamdi KANU. People should not be harrassed because of their religious views. Nigeria is not for Fulani alone.
“People of God Almighty should rise up and talk in unison otherwise Fulani controlled DSS will pick them one after the other to weaken them. They have started with Ejike Mbaka so others will fear and draw back from speaking the common truth about the goings-on in Nigeria.
“The DSS and other security agencies can kill the messenger but cannot kill the message. The message which Mazi Nnamdi Kanu passed has gone deep into the minds of Nigerians and they understood the truth about Nigeria and its evil government.
“People of God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama would come out and defend their sheep because God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama handed them over to them as shepherd.”
