Abuja - The United Kingdom (UK) branch of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has faulted the Abuja Federal High Court over its reasons for denying Biafra leader Nnamdi Kanu bail, Vanguard reprts.

In a statement signed by IPOB UK spokesperson Emma Nmezu, the organization has expressed regret at the announcement, saying that the decision of the court is tantamount to a systematic denial of the entire South East Nigeria of their right.

Emma Powerful, Media and Publicity Officer for IPOB, also stated that the current administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has shown that it has no respect for the rule of law and court orders at large.

In a similar vein, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has accused the Federal Government of "playing politics" with the detained activist.

Chief Sunny Okereafor, National Director of Information at MASSOB, has lamented Kanu's continued detention, saying that Government seems determined to keep him in police custody at all costs.

IPOB has since labelled the APC as a "terrorist party", saying that their systemic arrest and detention of Biafrans has not gone unnoticed.
