Don't Protest Over Kanu In Abuja, IPOB Lawyer Warns Igbo Women

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has advised Igbo Women against protesting over the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu in Abuja. 

IPOB warned that embarking on such a protest would expose the women to avoidable danger.

This is in view of IPOB’s United States of America-based lawyer, Bruce Fein's advised that Igbo women should storm Abuja in protest over Kanu's continued detention.

In a statement on Friday, IPOB Spokesman, Emma Powerful said that Fein overstepped his bounds as IPOB legal adviser in issuing such a directive, advising him to concentrate on his job and desist from meddling into Biafra related matters.

“Following the opinion of USA-based IPOB legal adviser Mr. Bruce Fein, asking IPOB women to embark on a street protest in Abuja, we wish to completely disassociate from such opinion and instruct Biafran women to please ignore such opinion and avoid the unnecessary risk.

“We, wish to state also that Bruce Fein overstepped his bounds as IPOB legal adviser in issuing such directive which will only expose our women to avoidable dangers and harm.

“Bruce Fein is our legal adviser and not IPOB Spokesperson. He does not quite understand that the version of Democracy operational in Nigeria is different from the real Democracy being practised in the US where he resides.

“In the US, protests are part and a common feature of Democracy and protesters enjoy protection from security agencies. But maybe unknown to him, in Nigeria, protesters are termed terrorists and shot on sight. To protest in Nigeria, particularly under the regime of President Muhammadu Buhari, is a suicide mission," the statement read in part.
