An unidentified armed militants that identified itself as “Angry Vipers” has issued an ultimatum to leaders in the southeast to secure the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The group, in a video received by OAK METRO on Thursday, revealed that failure to release the IPOB leader within 21 days would require them to declare “wanted”, all Igbo leaders.
In the video circulating on social media, the masked gunmen who stood in an unidentified forest with a native doctor holding a pot with flames, said:
“We The angry Viper has noticed that Southeast governors, Senators, local government Chairman have concluded to play pranks with the lives of youths of the Eastern region.
“We, hereby, give you 21 days ultimatum to ensure that Nnamdi Kanu is released unconditionally and resigns from the opposition without further delays.
“Failure to do so, we shall have no other option than to declare you wanted, dead or alive.
“All kings and chiefs who have decided to reduce themselves to used sanitary pads and all themselves to be toiled about with by uncircumcised Fulanis due to your idiocy and bribery; we the Angry Vipers are giving you 21 days to leave our land unless Nnamdi Kanu is released.”
Nnamdi Kanu, still held captive in Department of State Services (DSS) custody in Abuja, faces treason charges and other baseless crimes for calling for a referendum on an independent state known as Biafra.
He was kidnapped by government agents in Kenya and illegally repatriated to Nigeria.
