IPOB Accuses Security Operatives of Plot to Kill Kanu During Kuje Prison Mayhem
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has alleged that security agencies attempted to kill its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, during the botched jailbreak at Kuje prison on Monday.
In a statement in Enugu Monday, Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful, said security agents fired canisters of tear gas into Kanu’s cell at Kuje Prisons, with the intention to suffocate him, Vanguard writes.
“The Federal Government and its secret police, the DSS through the prison authorities and warders in charge of Kuje Prisons have perfected arrangements to snuff life out of our leader, Mazi Kanu, and those with him in the prison by separating the inmates who had misunderstanding with fellow inmates,” the statement read.
“There were tear gas and gunshots into Mazi Nnamdi Kanu‘s cell for him to die systematically. However, we observed that the government and its security agents through their prison warders orchestrated the violence in the prison in order to have excuses to eliminate Kanu.
“The cannon of tear gas was thrown inside the room that he stays. Right now, we don’t know the condition of our leader and others detained with him.”
The separatist group appealed to the international community and other concerned citizens to come to their aid, saying they remain intact and focused on their goal of self-determination.
“We are calling on the international community, the United Nations UN, the African Union AU, lovers of freedom, Amnesty International, AI, Human Rights watch/NGO’s and well-meaning Nigerians who understand the meaning of self-determination to come to our rescue because right now, we don’t know the condition of our leader.
“We in IPOB family worldwide under the leadership of prophet Nnamdi Kanu are still intact in the pursuit of Biafra restoration irrespective of the attacks from the FG and DSS. We, however, call on the agents of darkness in our midst and in Biafraland and government to look for another place because IPOB under Kanu is intact, no factions or crises within us and nobody can divide this group which has the divine mandate to liberate the people of Biafra from the shackles of slavery and bondage.”
While calling on its members to be vigilant, the group thanked “well-meaning Nigerians” who’ve spoken on their behalf, and pro-Biafra agitators remanded in various prisons.
