The Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB) has threatened to deal with Nigeria and its leaders should Nnamdi Kanu die in detention.
This was disclosed via a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, the pro-Biafran group said it was disappointed in the United Nations, European Union, African Union and ECOWAS for keeping silent while its leader continued to be detained for almost two years by the Federal Government.
IPOB accused the Supreme court of bias on how it handled Nnamdi kanu’s case, accusing the apex court of conspiring with the Federal Government, which “wants our leader to die in detention,” given his ill health.
“It is also possible that the DSS has given him (Kanu) a slow-acting poison, which is why his health keeps deteriorating to eventually kill him.
“In what we consider a conspiracy to kill our leader, the Nigeria Supreme Court, the constitutional court refused to entertain an appeal from Kanu’s lawyers over his deteriorating health. Instead, the apex court gave a wicked long adjournment of four months in the case of an innocent man that appeal court Justices have discharged and acquitted.
“In all these human right and court abuses, there seems to be a conspiratory silence among international organisations and her affiliate human rights organisations.
“As the health of our leader continues to deteriorate and the Federal Government refuses to obey lawful orders and the world maintains this criminal silence, IPOB will do all within our power to ensure that our leader does not die in detention. Freedom for Kanu is the freedom of the entire black race. Kanu is not a criminal. He is not a terrorist, nor has he been associated with Nigeria treasury looting, which Nigerian politicians are known for.
