The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Thursday, demanded the immediate release of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently imprisoned at the headquarters of the Department of State Services (DSS), Abuja.
This is coming few days after WAKADAILY report that, “The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has raised the alarm following intelligence reports that Boko Haram and Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists have heightened plots to attack Lagos State, the nation’s capital Abuja, Katsina, Zamfara, Kaduna, and Kogi State.”
According to the pro-Biafra movement is informed by the intelligence reports by various security agencies that terrorists are planning to attack targets in Abuja.
A statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, read: “The attention of the global movement and family of IPOB has been drawn to the sudden closure of all the government public schools operating in Abuja because of the threats from terrorists groomed by Fulani people to take over Abuja and entire Nigeria.
“IPOB, therefore, demands the immediate release of the leader of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from DSS dungeon in Abuja by the Federal Government and her compromised DSS.
“We are reminding Nigeria and her security agencies that the world through UN rights group has mandated for the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi KANU and the appropriate compensation paid to him without delay because he committed no crime against Nigeria and her sovereignty.
“We are advising fulani terrorists government of Nigeria to urgently release Mazi Nnamdi KANU unconditionally before their planned jihad in Abuja.
“We are monitoring them and the shenanigans they are playing with their terrorist collaborators to take over the government.
“IPOB is neither bothered nor interested in the plan of the terrorists to overrun the Nigerian government which we have rejected, our concern is the safety of our leader.
Further reading: “As Nigeria is closing schools, businesses, and other activities because of terrorists’ threat to attack Abuja, it clearly shows that Abuja is no longer safe for people to live.
“Hence our unequivocal demand for the unconditional release of Kanu before anything happens to him. We demand prompt and complete implementation of the UN directives on this matter.
“Binta Nyako and her jurists should know that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s life is in danger while being detained in DSS custody Abuja. Again, she should know that these terrorists attacked Nigeria Defence Academy (NDA) Kaduna, War Training College Jaji in Kaduna, Kuje Prisons Abuja and other security facilities in Abuja, therefore DSS facility is not immune to attack by these state-sponsored terrorists.
“The Nigeria Government and its compromised security agencies must understand that danger is coming from their brothers whom they groomed to ravage and pillage the country.”
