This is coming on the heels of a commendation message sent by Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) to the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) for issuing an ultimatum to some Governors in the South East to release their members.

IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful also said its leader, Nnamdi Kanu was honoured with an award by the Igbo Youths Movement in Enugu state, for fighting for the liberation of the Igbos.

Powerful also said “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.

“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.”

Nnamdi Kanu is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). He is currently being tried by the Federal Government of Nigeria for treason.
