The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said that there will be consequences if its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu dies in the custody of the Department of State Security (DSS)

A press statement by the IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, accused the government of planning a systematic murder of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu using the instrumentality of the judicial system.

“Our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was kidnapped and extraordinarily rendition to Nigeria and detained for almost three years in DSS solidarity confinement in Abuja. His health has deteriorated inside the detention facilities, and DSS has been using experimental drugs and practices for his serious health issues.

“The DSS lacks proper medical facilities to take care of his falling heart conditions. The Appeal Court in Abuja has discharged and acquitted him, yet the Nigerian government has decided not to free him by using the legal system in Nigeria. They have also decided not to give him access to appropriate medical care.

“It seems like the Nigerian government and her judiciary have decided to eliminate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu systematically by detaining him illegally until his heart and lungs give up.

“The IPOB family is informing the Nigerian government and its judiciary that IPOB will avenge anybody or group that has a hand in the persecution of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu if anything untoward happens to him.  He committed no crime. Instead, it was the Nigeria government and her security agencies that committed crimes against him and IPOB.

“Igbo politicians must use this little opportunity they have wisely to ensure that the Nigeria government and Britain who want to suffocate him gradually inside DSS solitary confinement as he suffers a terminal heart and lung disease do not do so.   “Irrespective of all the judicial abracadabra, the Nigerian government must ensure that our leader, must not die in their hands or die shortly after his release.

“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s life is a trigger that can consume Nigeria and the generations unborn.  Those who intend to tag us terrorists and those who are friends of Nigeria must advise the Nigerian government to release him healthy as the Appeal Court justices declared,” Powerful emphasised.
