The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Friday accused the Federal Government of trying to kill their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Okwu Kanu, and declare a state of emergency in South-East and South- South regions.
Kanu has been on the custody of the Department of State Service, DSS, for about four months, after he was re-arrested in Kenya.
Raising alarm in a statement signed by the group’s publicity secretary, Emma Powerful advised politicians, elders and religious leaders in the region to do everything possible to ensure the unconditional release of Kanu.
The group warned that things will not be the same again for everybody, if anything happens to Kanu.
Read the statement below: “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by our great liberator and prophet Mazi Nnamdi Okwu Kanu, wish to alert Biafrans and the entire humanity about the plans by the federal government of Nigeria to eliminate our leader, Mazi Nnamdi KANU; and declare a State of Emergency in the entire South-East and South South regions of NIGERIA. This plan is real and must be taken very serious by everybody.
“The intelligence report at our disposal reveal that the Nigeria Government is not comfortable with the international attention that Kanu’s rendition has received and the fate that await her at the International Criminal Court ICC, hence its contemplation of doing its worst.
“Nigeria is further aggrieved by the humiliating defeat it suffered at the just-concluded November 6 Anambra State governorship election which the federal government believed was made possible by our wisdom to cancel our earlier declared one week sit-at-home order. Our action was considered the master stroke that shattered their plans to manipulate the outcome of the poll in the eventuality that people did not come out to vote.
“Irked by the heroic role of our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in raising the consciousness of not only Biafrans but other Indigenous nationalities about NIGERIA, the Fulani cabal who are the beneficiaries of this fraud are bent on eliminating him at all cost. They want to reward him with death and damn the consequences.
