The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused the Federal Government of planning to assassinate the lawyers representing their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
In a statement on Friday signed by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, IPOB alleged that the Nigerian government through its security agencies wants to kill Aloy Ejimakor and Ifeanyi Ejiofor, over their efforts to free their leader.
IPOB also alleged that the government has perfected plans to eliminate some high-ranking members of the group through the security personnel deployed in the South East under the guise of Operation Golden Dawn.
The group, however, noted that any plan to kill its members in the South East will be outrightly rejected by the people of the South East.
The statement reads: “We wish to put the whole world on notice about the wicked plot by the frustrated Government of Nigeria to secretly eliminate our resilient lawyers, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor; and Barrister Aloy Ejimakor over their committed efforts in the defense of our leader who was renditioned from Kenya.
“The Nigeria Government is not happy with the expertise and professional prowess of these veteran lawyers and other members of the legal team to deflate the fabricated charges against our leader, hence their plot to eliminate them.
“This covert plan extends to the elimination of Mazi Benjamin Madubugwu, Bright Chimezie Ishinwa, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, David Nwawuisi as well as several State Coordinators are in their elimination list handed down by the Nigerian government to its Security agencies.
“The Nigerian government intends to carry out this targeted elimination through the security personnel deployed in South East under the guise of Operation Golden Dawn to do the dirty job.
“The compromised security agents have decided to eliminate Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers once they step into any part of South East.”
“South East remains our ancestral home and we cannot run away because we committed no sacrilege in our land.
“Anybody planning to kill us will be battling with the spirit of our ancestors and the spirit that own Biafraland.”
