The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has issued a serious warning to the Federal Government of Nigeria concerning the health condition of its embattled leader, Nnamdi Kanu, saying its peaceful approach would never remain the same if anything untoward happens to him.
The secessionist group said it had received a disturbing report from its legal team concerning the deteriorating health condition of Kanu inside the Department of State Services (DSS) solitary confinement.
This was contained in a statement signed by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, on Friday.
The group pointed out that it has remained peaceful even in the face of the most unbearable provocations in the form of kidnappings, torture, secret disappearances, and extra-judicial murders, in addition to the extraordinary rendition of its Leader from Kenya to Nigeria.
It, however, warned that Kanu’s health was a red line that must not be crossed.
While calling on the international community, including the British Prime Minister and her High Commissioner in Abuja, the United States of America President, and the US Embassy in Abuja, Amnesty International, among others, to compel the Federal Government of Nigeria to release Kanu unconditionally, it warned that the Nigerian Government should be held responsible in the event of any ugly scenario.
