IPOB made the call following the release of the five suspects who allegedly murdered an Igbo woman, Mrs Bridget Aghaneme, in Kano over alleged blasphemy.
Recall that the 74-year-old Imo indigene was murdered on June 2 in Kofar Wambai Market in the state over alleged blasphemy.
In July, a Kano Magistrates’ Court denied bail to the five suspects involved in the killing of Aghaneme and ordered that they be remanded in prison custody.
Just few days ago, the Magistrate court discharged all five suspects and terminated the case as advised by the attorney-general of Kano State.
Reacting to the court’s ruling, the secessionist group in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful condemned the release of the suspects, claiming that the judgment shows that there were different laws for different people in Nigeria.
The statement reads, “We, in the IPOB worldwide condemn the recent judgment delivered by the magistrate court in Kano State in favour of the killers of Mrs Bridget Aghaneme who was murdered in broad daylight in Kano state by the Islamic fundamentalist.
“We condemn the judgment in its totality. The magistrate and the government of Kano State were instrumental to the killing of an innocent woman who committed no crime against Islam.
“However, this is what IPOB preached that the Christians in Nigeria and the people of Biafra must leave the north and come back home and make their lives better by staying in a place where their lives will be protected. This concocted judgment by the killers in the northern part of Nigeria indicate that Igbo are not wanted in the northern territories.
“Again we are aware that the killers of the Christians and Biafrans have infiltrated the judiciary especially in the northern part of Nigeria.
“Otherwise, how can a well trained lawyer and a magistrate who attended so many seminars and course release a murderer who snuffed life out of a fellow human being to go scot free?
“This is a dangerous signal that nobody is safe again in the country…We are also aware that the arrest they made before taking them to court was a jamboree just in a bid to deceive the general public and cover their evil agenda against the people of Biafra but then we are not deterred in fighting for the restoration of God’s nation, Biafra.” RECEIVE NEWS UPDATE ON: WHATSAPP +234 701 056 0394, AND TWITTER: @247NGNEWSUPDATE, EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE Share your story with us: firstname.lastname@example.org PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
