Emma said the award ceremony which took place at the Nike Hotel in Enugu is a proof that Kanu has remained “a man of the masses even while incarcerated”.

Emma's statement reads: “Prince Nnamdi Kanu received the award as a great liberator of our days and as the man who destroyed the falsehood in Nigeria with the truth without a metallic bullets and bombs, his determination, resoluteness and truthfulness towards the liberation of his people accorded him the honour and respect among the youths across the world.”

"The group’s members worldwide commend the leadership and members of the Igbo Youth movement for their decision.

“IPOB family members worldwide under Mazi Kanu promise to restore Biafra through a peaceful means because it is a divine project from Chukwuokike Abiama (God Almighty) which no human being can stop. The killing, torture, intimidation and arrest of Biafrans cannot stop our resolve towards the restoration of Gods projects.
