IPOB – The leader of Pro-Biafra separatist group Nnamdi Kanu has said he left Nigeria because he could not get the necessary protection from the court.
Kanu, who leads the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was first seen in the public in Jerusalem on Thursday after he went underground in September 2017 following the deployment of troops to the southeastern city of Umuahia.
He is facing a sleuth of charges, most of which are connected to his call for the independence of the southeastern region of Nigeria.
“I did not jump bail, I left because the court failed to protect me,” Kanu said in a Facebook broadcast on Sunday
“What they are charging me does not exist. I don’t have any weapon. My only weapon is my microphone and my courage.”
