The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Friday accused the Nigerian Government of plotting to kill its leader, Nnamdi Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.

IPOB alleged that the Nigerian Government was planning to eliminate Kanu and declare a state of emergency in the Southeast.

Spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful, alleged that the Nigerian Government is not comfortable with the international attention, Kanu’s arrest in Kenya has gotten.

In a statement he signed, Powerful claimed that some top government officials of this administration are afraid of their fate at the International Criminal Court, ICC, in The Hague; hence are plotting to kill Kanu.

He said: “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by our great liberator and prophet Nnamdi Kanu, wish to alert Biafrans and the entire humanity about the plans by the wicked and oppressive federal government of Nigeria to eliminate our leader, 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”.

IPOB noted that the Nigerian government is after Kanu, due to the free and fair Anambra governorship election, following the cancellation of its sit-at-home order.

“Nigeria is further aggrieved by the humiliating defeat it suffered at the just-concluded November 6 Anambra State governorship election which the federal government believe was made possible by our wisdom to cancel our earlier declared one-week sit-at-home order. Our action was considered the masterstroke 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 the fraud called 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. They want to kill him in DSS custody.”

The separatist group lamented that Kanu has been placed in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day in DSS custody, adding that he has not been allowed to change his clothes.

IPOB also alleged that its leader has been denied access to his personal physicians, any medical investigation into the substance injected on him during his abduction in Kenya.
