A Police Inspector, Ekemezie Hycient, has resigned the Nigeria Police Force after 15 years of service refering to alleged continuous political mistreatment of Nnamdi Kanu.
Before his resignation on 14 July, Hycient said he was attached to IGP Special Taskforce on Petroleum and Illegal Bunkering Unit, Calabar Sector.
He said Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that is seeking to split away from Nigeria, “committed no offense known to the law because self-determination is not a crime”.
He also added “a call for referendum is not a call for war”.
In his resignation letter, Hycient who said he joined the Force on 15 July 2007, said, “I decided to resign my position as an inspector of police after my fifteen years of service, my reasons of resignation are as follows:
“The Nigeria state has been so polarized that foreign machineries and terrorists have surrounded the whole country, killing the indigenous owners of the land in the name of their Jihad especially the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)
“There is a systematic extermination of the indigenous population that make up the country called Nigeria with the help of the Nigerian government.
“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is under going political persecution because he spoke and stood against this shenanigan of the present government in the name of Islamizing the whole country and to hand over the indigenous Fulani?. The Nigeria security forces go about killing innocent people leaving the Fulanis that are killing people everywhere.
“I can no longer continue to serve the Government that cannot guarantee the safety of its citizens. I call on the federal government of Nigeria to free Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for he has committed no offense known to the law because self-determination is not a crime, a call for referendum is not a call for war. It is also a democratic process just like election is. Hence this resignation.”
