IPOB PRESS RELEASE
The attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the able Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the insulting and provoking statement credited to the infamous DSS agents that Mazi Nnamdi KANU is being properly taken care of inside their dungeon by the lawless DSS criminal agency.
Again, we want Biafrans, Nigerians, and the International Community to know that Nigerian Department of State Services (DSS) has continued to deny Mazi Nnamdi KANU access to his personal doctor as ordered by the court, and has not provided him with his medical records either. He is not being provided with his prescription medication regularly. Mazi Nnamdi KANU's is still being starved because his feeding has also not improved. According to IPOB lawyer, Barr. Ejiofor and others who visited Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra on Thursday the 9th of February 2023, there is no improvement in his deteriorating health condition. Our leader's health is deteriorating daily inside DSS solitary confinement, while DSS continues to defy the judgment and legitimate orders of courts of competent jurisdiction.
The spurious claim therefore by the lawless DSS that Mazi Nnamdi KANU is properly being taken care of medically, is not just an insult to the sensibilities of Biafrans, but very provocative as well.
IPOB has maintained a peaceful and nonviolent stance in our movement and struggle to restore Biafra, and we intend to continue the peaceful agitation for a Biafra Independence referendum. But this peaceful struggle will not be guaranteed if anything happens to Mazi Nnamdi KANU in the DSS dungeon. If anything untoward happens to our leader in the hands of the Nigeria government and DSS, it will be a tit for tat towards any individual, group, and institution that is involved in the kidnap and extraordinary rendition of our leader from Kenya to Nigeria and much much more.
We have consistently urged and demanded that the Nigeria government should stop its flagrant disregard to Court orders and judgements ordering the release of Mazi Nnamdi KANU unconditionally such as that given by the Abuja Appeal Court, or return Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to Kenya as ordered by the Umuahia High Court but the Nigerian government has continued to ignore this demand and is rather making a mockery of the Judiciary. We are putting the world and every country and organization remotely interested in the affairs of Nigeria on notice that keeping mute at this level of injustice being mated out in particular to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Mazi Nnamdi KANU and generally to the Biafran people should be reminded that their silence will certainly precipitate an disorderly implosion of the contraption called Nigeria.
Once again we call on the American government and her Embassy, British government and her High Commissioner in Abuja, Russia government and her Embassy in Abuja, Israeli government and her Embassy in Abuja, German government and her Embassy in Abuja, Canadian government and her Embassy in Abuja, Australia government and her Embassy in Abuja, UN Office in Abuja, AU office in Abuja, ECOWAS office in Abuja, EU Office in Abuja, Amnesty International Nigeria, Human Rights Watch, Intersociety in Nigeria, and other reputable Human Rights Organisations to prevail on the Nigeria government to understand the urgency and imparativeness of releasing Mazi Nnamdi KANU forthwith and unconditionally so that he can properly attend to his deteriorating health situation and avoid the very dire consequences that is staring all of us in the face.
