The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra has taken further stride to the United Nations in the United States against the Nigerian government on human rights abuses melted on Biafrans and religious minorities.
This was made public by the group leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on Wednesday evening said the materials, which appears incriminating was submitted to @AgnesCallemard, the Special rapporteur at the United Nations.
Kanu said the chronicle materials with UN which was signed by him and his US National Coordinator, Clement Okoro and twenty-two others are geared towards acknowledging and confronting all forms of human rights abuses taking place in the country across states and making sure all perpetrators are apprehended and prosecuted.
He also noted that IPOB’s goal is to make sure religious minorities within Nigeria states are fully protected by the international community.
IPOB enlisted several human rights violations, ranging from indiscriminate arrest to mass execution of IPOB members and others by the Nigerian military, Police and other security agents.
The chronicle of rights abuses, according to IPOB were summarized into twelve heinous incidents against Biafrans and Christians by Fulani Herdsmen.
Referencing incidents includes report by Amnesty international covering killing of, at least, one hundred and fifty (150) protesting members and cover page reviews by Wall Street Journal (WSJ).
Recall, sometimes in September 2019, Kanu was invited by the UN committee on human rights to educate them on IPOB struggle and other issues.
He was later invited by the European Union in Geneva Switzerland where he as well discussed some issues on security regards Biafra struggle despite proscription tag levied by the Nigerian government.
IPOB keeps intensifying efforts in restoring the Biafra nation through referendum but has faced clampdown by the Nigerian security agents.
