The detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has condemned the killings of soldiers and civilians in the s part of Nigeria.

Kanu made this known at the Federal High Court Abuja, during his trial on Wednesday, June 19, when he arrived in court in the presence of his lawyers.

He stated that he wanted peace, and had no hand in the murder of some soldiers in Abia State a few weeks ago.

“I condemn in its entirety all of the killings, because IPOB was founded on a non-violent principle, and we maintain that stand. And some of these soldiers, we were told are also our people, and his family is in mourning right now.

“So I condemn all the killings. I don’t want that. We are fighting for freedom, so, how can we want violence? We want people to be free. We have suffered a lot in Africa, from slavery in Arabia, Europe and now slavery in America. This is when to focus on this continent, and be what God wants us to be so that they will know that we know what we are doing,’ he told journalists in court.

Kanu has been in DSS custody since June 2021 when he was arrested in Kenya.
