The Indigenous People of Biafra has written a cry-out letter to the governments of UK, USA and Germany, in the letter, IPOB lamented to the governments of these tier 1 countries that the Department of Start Services is using hunger as a strategy to disorient and elimate its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has been in their detention since mid 2021.
IPOB alleged that the Nigeria’s secret police is using hunger, maltreatment and humiliation against Nnamdi Kanu who has been coffined its leader to a solitary cell under harsh conditions. IPOB also cited that DSS has failed to obey all of the December 2nd court order which allows its leader to freedom to move around in the facility, interact with other inmates, eat and practice his Jewish faith.
This call was made by the The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, on Saturday in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful. IPOB also urged the governments Isreal, Canada and other western countries to take note.
“We are the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU. We wish to place the world on notice over the continued maltreatment and humiliation of our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, custody in Abuja.
“The evil and compromised Nigeria DSS security agent has decided to use starvation and hunger strategy to eliminate our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU in the custody.
“They have continued to confine him to a solitary cell under harsh conditions since his rendition to Nigeria in June. Solitary confinement is not correctional centres, they should send him to Kuje prison pending his court dates.”
IPOB called on the Federal Government to transfer Kanu from DSS custody to Kuje prison. The separatist group also warned that nothing should happen to Kanu while in DSS detention.
“We are asking the Nigerian government and security agencies that is busy granting and releasing bandits and real terrorists every day to transfer our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU to the Nigeria prison/Correctional Centre where persons awaiting trial and kept.
“Nothing should happen to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in detention. “Nigeria DSS has denied our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu food for three to four days now.
“The whole world should take note of these atrocities and torture being meted out against our innocent Leader. Amnesty International and other human rights groups should take note. American government, Israeli government, Canada, German government and other western and civilised countries in the UK and Europe should prevail on Nigeria, DSS to stop starving and torturing our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. His rights should not be violated anymore.
He closed by saying Nigeria should take our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU to prison custody and stop violating his rights at the DSS cell.
