The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has warned that there will be more trouble if the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, dies in custody of the Department of State Services (DSS). Fr Mbaka made this known while calling on the congregation to pray for the release of the secessionist on Sunday. The cleric, who commended IPOB for calling off its Monday sit-at-home exercise, said the danger of the order was becoming a problem instead of a solution.
Recall that IPOB had ordered the arrest of anyone found enforcing the already-suspended Monday sit-at-home order in the South-East. The Media and Publicity Secretary of the group, Emma Powerful, said the group has long suspended the order and wondered why some people would continue to enforce an order that has already been cancelled by IPOB.
The cleric further stated that he was pleased that the intervention of stakeholders has yielded results with the cancelation of the lockdown of the entire south east region every Monday.
Commending IPOB, Fr Mbaka said; ”The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) the hero, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is expressing his empathy with the people of the South East over what they are passing through. He came to know that Igbos are suffering because of him. And he would not wish that suffering to continue. Therefore, nobody should stop anybody from going to his or her business any Monday.
“All of us should keep praying for Nnamdi Kanu release, and work towards his freedom because if he dies inside that place, it will cause more trouble. If he comes out, he will come out as a hero. We don’t want him to die, because it is not Nnamdi Kanu’s issue, it is the issue that concerns the people that are suffering. Nnamdi Kanu is not asking the government to do anything for him, he is speaking for the Igbo people.
“We that are affected, he is speaking on our behalf, so we should do everything possible to see that it is well with him. Many were saying they saw me at Abuja some days ago, yes. My own is if I am with you, I am with you. I will not sit here to tell you why I am in Abuja but whatever will make my people to be emancipated I will do it. There are people working to see that Nnamdi Kanu is released and it is not by sitting at home that he will be released.
”Canceling sit-at-home does not mean that it is over, the poor masses are suffering. Most of the rich people don’t have business over here, we are punishing our self. We thank the leader of (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, may God bless him.”
My warning to President Buhari is this, don’t allow Nnamdi Kanu to die under the custody of DSS otherwise they will be doom and calamity in the country, listen to the voice of reasoning and release him now that he is still alive,” Fr Mbaka stated.
