BISHOP WARNS – IT  WILL BE VERY PAINFUL IF NNAMDI KANU CELEBRATES CHRISTMAS IN PRISON

Bishop Abraham Chris Udeh, the general overseer of Mount Zion Faith Global Ministries Inc, aka (By Fire By Fire), has berated the international community over its silence in the continued imprisonment of the Director of Radio Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. According to Udeh, Kanu is still in prison because of the lack of interest of the international community, especially Britain in assisting the Indigenous People of Biafra gain their independence.

Speaking to The Sun, Bishop Udeh said that if the United Nations (UN) as a body, as well as America and Britain had shown interest in Kanu’s freedom, and had questioned the Nigerian government over his continued detention, he would have been released by now. The cleric said that the British government was only trying to protect her economic interests in Nigeria so as not to sever her relationship with the Nigerian government.

Bishop Udeh however charged the UN and United States of America to rise to the occasion and mount pressure on the Nigerian government to release Nnamdi Kanu between now and December, 2016. He noted that it would be a very painful thing to the people of South East and South South, if Kanu would be in prison to celebrate this year’s Christmas. Udeh claimed that the international community had folded their hands with the excuse that Nigeria is a sovereign nation while Nnamdi Kanu, “a freedom fighter, continued to remain behind the bars for no just cause.”

This comes even as he said that Fulani herdsmen had been on rampage killing and maiming people here and there with reckless abandon and have gone scot-free. “The federal government has not told us how those herdsmen acquired the AK47 and other arms and ammunition they use to attack innocent Nigerians. But only someone who talks about freedom of his people verbally, without weapons, would be thrown into jail and denied his freedom since October, 2015,” he said. Bishop Udeh’s call for Nnmadi Kanu release comes hours after the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) raised an alarm over an alleged plot by the federal government to assassinate its leader, Nnamdi Kanu inside the prison custody on October 1. The group in a statement issued by its spokespersons, Emma Nmezu and Dr. Clifford Iroanya, on Thursday, September 15, queried the federal government for abandoning its prosecution of Kanu and going for the option of his alleged assassination on Nigeria’s 56th independent anniversary celebration.
