Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), says he would restore peace in the south-east in two minutes if released from detention.


The IPOB leader said nobody in the south-east can counter his orders concerning the security situation in the region.

Kanu spoke on Tuesday after he was denied bail by Justice Binta Nyako, presiding judge of the federal high court, Abuja.


He said violence persisted in the region because he is being held in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).

“Anybody committing crime cannot go free. I swear, Anybody committing crime in the east cannot go free,” he said.

“They are doing it because I am in the DSS (custody). If I were to be outside, nobody could try this. I suspect that some people in government are complicit. They are making money with insecurity.

“They know if Nnamdi Kanu is outside, in two minutes this nonsense will stop. Who is the bagger or idiot that will speak when I am talking?

“That I will give an order in the east who is the idiot that I will give an order that will counter it? Nobody can. I am Nnamdi Kanu. Rubbish!

“Anybody involved in any form of violence in the east in the name of IPOB is a goner and they know it. Let me come out of this mess, only two minutes there will be peace in the east.”

The court had ordered an accelerated hearing of the seven-count terrorism charge preferred against him on Tuesday.
