IPOB Threatens, Says Nigeria Will Fall If Kanu Dies In Detention

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) issued a stern warning on Wednesday, stating that if their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is handed over to Nigeria, the consequences will be severe for the nation and its leaders.

Expressing their disappointment, IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful, criticized the United Nations, European Union, African Union, and ECOWAS for their silence regarding the prolonged detention of their leader by the Federal Government, which has lasted nearly two years.

Accusing the Supreme Court of bias in handling Kanu’s case, the group asserted that the court was colluding with the Federal Government, aiming for their leader to perish while in custody, especially considering his deteriorating 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.

“We are telling the international community and African Union in particular not to blame IPOB for whatever becomes the aftermath of Nigeria’s continuous disobedience to both local and international laws in the case of Nnamdi Kanu now.

“We want the world to understand that IPOB is peaceful but understands our right of self-defence. The gentleness of a tiger should not be taken as cowardice. Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable. Our prayers are that the Nigerian government will do the needful on time because if our leader falls in the hands of Nigeria, then Nigeria and her leaders will fall in the hands of Biafra,” IPOB said.
