The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has raised the alarm about the clandestine plan to eliminate their leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu through poisoning, drug abuse, and starvation.
Kanu, who is currently being detained in the custody of the Nigerian government Secret Security Agency the DSS, is allegedly said to be dying through a silent and systematic process of gradual starvation.
Raising the alarm, the group through its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful disclosed that Kanu now feeds twice a day on bread and water without medication for the treatment of his ailment while in the DSS solitary confinement facility in Abuja.
The group warned that Kanu should not die in the DSS custody, adding that if he dies in their custody, it would come with unimaginable consequences.
IPOB leader also alleged that its leader has been poisoned, and is being allowed to gradually die.
“The secret police wants to eliminate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu through a silent and systematic process of gradual starvation of giving him only bread and water twice a day and drug abuse by providing him insufficient medication for his known ailment while in their solitary confinement facility in Abuja.
“Kanu had complained very sadly that he is dying slowly. He also complained bitterly that the DSS has subjected him to drug abuse as medication required for two weeks is provided for only 8 days.
“He complained that he hasn’t been allowed to see any doctor since the second week of December 2022 and DSS has refused to take him to the doctor in spite of his deteriorating health. He says he feels his internal organs are badly affected, yet, the DSS has refused to take him to a hospital. He also complained bitterly about pain and sound in his left ear where he was tortured in Kenya before being extraordinarily extradited to Nigeria.”
