The Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful in a statement has accused the Federal Government and its security agencies yesterday of a plan to murder Nnamdi Kanu in Kuje Prison. He alleged that the prison warders, in order to kill him without traces fired canisters of teargas into his cell in the prison.
The statement reads, “The Federal Government and its secret police, the DSS through the prison warders in charge of Kuje Prisons have perfected plans to snuff life out of our leader, Mazi Kanu and those with him in the prison by separating the inmates who had misunderstanding with fellow inmates. There was teargas and gun shots into Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s for him to systematically.
“However, we observed that the Federal Government and its security agents through their prison warders orchestrated the violence in the prison in order to eliminate Kanu. The orchestrated violence to be executed by prison warders started when the security agents shot sporadically towards the doors and windows where our leader Mazi Kanu and two other IPOB members were being detained.
“The prison official went to search some prison inmates whose cells were very far from where Kanu and two others were kept but all of a sudden, they started shooting live bullets towards the direction where our leader was kept. The cannon of teargas was thrown into the room where he stays. Right now we don’t know the condition of our leader and others detained with him.
“We are calling on the international community, the United Nations, the African Union, lovers of freedom, Amnesty International, AI, Human Right Watch/NGOs and well-meaning Nigerians who understand the meaning of self-determination to come to our rescue because right now, we don’t know the condition of our leader.
“We in IPOB family worldwide under the leader of Prophet Nnamdi Kanu are intact with our pursuit of Biafra restoration irrespective of the attacks from the FG and DSS.
“We, however, call for the agents of darkness in our midst and in Biafraland and government to look for another place because IPOB under Kanu is intact. No factions or crises within us and nobody can divide this group which has the divine mandate to liberate the people of Biafra from the shackles of slavery and bondage.
“Nevertheless, all the members of IPOB are advised to be resolute, watchful and mindful of whom they allow into their midst. We congratulate the international community, all rights organizations/NGOs, Christian community and well-meaning Nigerians who deemed it so wise to advise Nigerian Government to release Nnamdi Kanu and other members of IPOB and pro Biafra agitators detained in different prisons and security cells across the country.
