Nnamdi Kanu’s death in DSS custody will consume Nigeria, IPOB warns FG

Nnamdi Kanu

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Friday warned that its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, must not die in custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.

IPOB issued a warning, demanding Kanu’s unconditional release, saying his death would be a trigger that would consume Nigeria.

Emma Powerful, the spokesman for IPOB, accused the Nigerian government of a planned systematic murder of Kanu using the instrumentality of the judiciary.

In a statement signed by Powerful, IPOB claimed that Kanu’s health has deteriorated inside the detention facilities, adding that the DSS has been using experimental drugs and practices for his serious health issues.

The statement reads: “The global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by the confident and great leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is bringing to the notice of Biafrans, friends of Biafra, lovers of Biafra freedom, and the International Communities that the Nigerian Government and her judiciary have planned a systematic murder of Nnamdi Kanu using the instrumentality of their fraudulent judicial system.

“Our leader, Nnamdi Kanu, was kidnapped, extra-ordinarily returned to Nigeria, and detained for almost 3 years in DSS solitary confinement in Abuja.

“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 lawless Nigerian government has decided not to free him by using the corrupt legal system in Nigeria. They have also decided not to give him access to appropriate medical care.

It seems like the murderous Nigerian government and her judiciary have decided to eliminate 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 Nnamdi Kanu if anything untoward happens to him. Nnamdi Kanu committed no crime. Instead, it was the lawless Nigerian government and her murderous security agencies that committed crimes against Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB.

“Igbo politicians must use this little opportunity they have wisely to ensure that the Nigerian government and Britain, who want to suffocate Nnamdi Kanu 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, Nnamdi Kanu, does not die in their hands nor die shortly after his release. 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 Nnamdi Kanu healthy,” the Appeal Court Justices declared. When the need arises, the peaceful IPOB, known worldwide, is capable of confronting Nigeria. This is not a threat, but a promise.

“Nnamdi Kanu, during his last court appearance on March 19, 2024, complained about pains in his lungs and lumps under his arms and in his armpits. He also said that the Nigerian government wants to murder him gradually.

“The use of judicial abracadabra to detain Nnamdi Kanu while waiting for his health to degenerate to an incurable level will not be acceptable to IPOB and Biafrans. We insist on Nnamdi Kanu’s unconditional release, free from any further bodily harm, after he defeated the Nigerian government in their Appeal Court.

“The International Community, United Nations, European Union (EU), African Union (AU), Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Intersociety, and all the reputable human rights activists and organisations across the globe must not blame IPOB should we take laws into our own hands when the time comes. When injustice becomes a law, resistance becomes a duty.”
