Nnamdi Kanu’s health is ‘Red Line’ you must not cross – IPOB warns DSS

IPOB Nnamdi Kanu's health DSS

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has warned the Department of State Services (DSS) that the health condition of its detained leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is a red line that they must not cross.

The spokesperson of the group, Emma Powerful, gave the warning in a statement issued on Friday.

The pro Biafra group threatened that the peace in Nigeria would never remain should anything happens to their leader.

KEMI FILANI NEWS had reported that Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer to the IPOB leader, said Kanu has been diagnosed with gastrointestinal disorder following persistent heartburn.

The full statement read: “The IPOB leadership received very disturbing report from our Legal Team about the deteriorating health of the great leader and Prophet Mazi Nnamdi KANU inside DSS solitary confinement. Nigeria Government through their DSS have refused Mazi Nnamdi Kanu access to his personal and professional Physician for over a year now in contravention to Court orders. The Nigerian government and the DSS is hereby notified that they are  playing with an active Volcano whose eruption will leave a trial of complete destruction should they continue on this ignoble part and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s is in any manner impacted negatively.

“Nigeria Government must understand that because IPOB has remained peaceful even in the face of most unbearable provocations in the form of abductions, torture, secret disappearances, extra judicial murders in addition to the extraordinary rendition of our Great Leader from Kenya to Nigeria since June of last year, 2021, the Nigerian government and its agency called the DSS should very well know that the issue of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s health while in their custody is a RED LINE they must not cross.

“This peaceful approach will never remain the same if anything untoward happens to him. We are telling you now so that the international community will bear us witness that we warned Nigeria before it and its torture agency the DSS commit an irreparable blunder.

“We want Nigeria to understand that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra is worth more than 1million men and this a tip of what we shall sacrifice if anything untoward happen to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in your custody. Nigeria should be grateful for having a peace loving freedom fighter like Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has ensured that IPOB remain peaceful even with all the unlawful arrests, detentions, and extrajudicial executions of peaceful members of IPOB. 

“We are urging the British Prime Minister & her High Commissioner in Abuja, The United States of America President & US Embassy in Abuja, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch organisation, United Nations, African Union, ECOWAS, Israel Prime Minister & Israel Embassy in Abuja, Russia President & Russia Embassy in Abuja, German Chancellor & her Embassy in Abuja to compel the Government of Nigeria to unconditionally  release Mazi Nnamdi KANU the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra or be prepared to repeat their Genocidal war against Biafrans as it was in 1967-1970. 

“Nigeria MUST agree on a REFERENDUM date with IPOB for the Biafran people to decide their fate and future. The time and Era of impunity and imposition of external will on the Indigenous People of Biafra is long gone and dead.

“We are aware that the issue of Biafra is among the topical issues facing the International Community and world Leaders; the most important issue now is the release of our leader and paying him adequate compensation for the flagrant abuse and violation of his fundamental human rights and for the physical and psychological torture he has been put through these past months.

“If Nigeria Government refuses to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and should anything wrong happen, this peaceful Biafra struggle will suddenly turn into a bloody revolution, and the Nigeria Government should be held responsible in the event of this scenario. 

“Nigeria Government should know that the gentle strides of a Lion is not a symbol of timidity”.
