Lagos - The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has given a 3-day ultimatum for the unconditional release of its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu or it would resume protests in the South East and South South states of the country, Vanguard reports.
IPOB alleged that Kanu was being tortured and harassed to the extent that sleeping had become the most difficult thing he could have, and therefore, warned that what Boko Haram was doing in the North East would be a child’s play to what they would do if anything unsavoury happens to Kanu.

Similarly, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, has pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu to Igbo leaders, assuring that they would make him realize the futility of continuing his pro- Biafra stance.
