IPOB Says FG Is Planning On Killing Kanu’s Lawyers, Others

The Indigenous People of Biafra has alleged a plot to kill the lead lawyers of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

The Media and Publicity Secretary of the secessionist group, Emma Powerful, said this in a statement made available to our correspondent in Awka, Anambra State.

He gave the names of the lawyers as Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Aloy Ejimakor.

The IPOB publicist said, “We wish to put the whole world on notice about the wicked plot by the frustrated government of Nigeria to secretly eliminate our resilient lawyers, Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Aloy Ejimakor, over their committed efforts in the defence of our leader.

“The Nigerian government is not happy with the expertise and professional prowess of these veteran lawyers and other members of the legal team to deflate the fabricated charges against our leader, hence, their plot to eliminate them.

“Intelligence report at our disposal also indicates that this covert plan extends to the elimination of Mazi Benjamin Madubugwu, Bright Ishinwa, Chidiebere Onwudiwe and David Nwawuisi.

“Several state coordinators are also on their elimination list, handed down by the Nigerian government to its security agencies.

“The Nigerian government intends to carry out this targeted elimination through the security personnel deployed in South-East under the guise of Operation Golden Dawn to do the dirty job.

“The compromised security agents have decided to eliminate Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers once they step into any part of the South-East.

“The world should hold Nigeria Government responsible should anything happen to our lawyers and any of those listed above.

“This is not the first time such evil plot would be hatched against them as Ejiofor has severally escaped assassination attempts on his life by these same Nigerian security operatives. His attackers had twice set his home on fire.

“The world must take note and pay attention to the atrocities being committed in Biafra land by the Nigerian government.”

The statement added that IPOB was bringing the plot of the Nigerian government to the attention of the international community.

Tundun Abiola: I Pray They Dont Kill Kanu same Way They Killed My Dad

Tundun Abiola, daughter of late politician and business mogul, late Chief MKO Abiola has decried the incarceration and pains the Department of State Services (DSS) inflicts on the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Ms Abiola also begged Nigerians to desist from utterances that could aggravate Kanu’s sufferings adding that the Buhari administration was not different from a military regime the country experienced in the 1990s.

Tundun disclosed all these during an interview with AriseTV on Monday while responding to questions on how the pro-Biafra agitator had been subjected to solitary confinement as revealed by his lawyers last week.

Tundun, a United Kingdom-trained lawyer said, “I have first-hand experience of this, and all I can say like this for Nnamdi Kanu is I hope he doesn’t go through this for four years as my father did. Four long years, that was his (Abiola) reality. And the next thing is that this report came out and would make the federal government look bad.

“The next thing is that they could stop people from seeing him at all. He would just be there all by himself, no access even to a doctor, to a lawyer, certainly, no family member there as he goes through all this.

“I saw Nnamdi Kanu during his court appearance, as he was trying to put a brave face on things. You know men and their pride; he doesn’t want to show it. He doesn’t want to weaken people who really believe in him and support him. He was trying to look normal but what he’s going through is the exact opposite of normal.

“And it is just very sad, here we are in 2021 after my dad died for democracy, we’re still having this conversation in 2021 of somebody being treated appallingly like a kind of a serious killer. Under what circumstances should somebody be treated like this?

IPOB Vows To Deal With Distributors Of Mkpuru Mmiri In Southeast

The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) has vowed to go after distributors of methamphetamine, otherwise known as ‘mkpurummiri’ in the South-east.

It said it cannot allow peddlers of the illicit drug to destroy the future of the youths of the region.

The increase in consumption of the drug is said to be partly responsible for the recent violence and criminality in the region among the youths.

Some communities in the South-east recently declared war on distributors and consumers of the banned substance.

A clip circulating on WhatsApp and Facebook showed some consumers and distributors of the drug being tied and flogged as punishment. They were eventually compelled to make a vow not to engage in the sales and consumption of the drug.

IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful, in a statement, described the situation as “ugly and disturbing.”

He hailed the communities for taking action against the sales and consumption of hard drugs.

Mr Powerful said the consumption of hard drugs by some Igbo youths was “very strange and completely unacceptable.”

“We won’t allow that to happen here in the region, we encourage every community to have departments to checkmate those selling and taking Mkpuru Mmiri.

“IPOB hereby declares war against this nonsense. We shall go after those taking or distributing this harmful, illicit drug. Henceforth, anyone found peddling, consuming or in any way involved in the distribution of this illicit drug shall be decisively dealt with.

“Biafran youths are known for their enterprising spirit, entrepreneurship and diligence. IPOB will not allow evil men and unpatriotic elements to ruin or destroy the future of our youths with Mkpuru Mmiri.

“While we commend communities who have already risen to curb this evil, we solicit useful information about those behind the distribution of this illicit drug so we will teach them in the language they understand,” the IPOB spokesperson said.

Don’t give-in to pressure to release of Nnamdi Kanu – CNG warns Buhari

The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has rejected Igbo leaders call on President Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Igbo leaders had visited the president at Aso Rock on Friday, demanding that Kanu should be released.

Buhari, who described their request as heavy, had said he would consider it.

But CNG has described the request as an attempt to subvert the course of justice, saying those who made it should be treated as “accomplice and sponsors of the atrocities and crimes Kanu committed against humanity and the Nigerian state.”

At a press conference in Kano on Monday, spokesman of the coalition, Abdul-Azeen Suleiman, criticised Buhari’s response to Igbo leaders, saying “the North would hold Buhari responsible for the blood of its people unlawfully shed through the activities of Kanu in the event he succumbs to the Igbo pressure to release him.”

Suleiman said the coalition on the ground research in the South East showed hat from 2017 to 2020, IPOB under the leadership of Kanu triggered the “killing of more than 1,230 northern Nigerians living in parts of the South East.

“Several millions worth of businesses, properties and valuable assets belonging to northerners and citizens of other regions were destroyed across the South eastern cities on the instructions of Nnamdu Kanu within the same period.”

The coalition said it observed that “the demand (by the Igbo elders) and Buhari’s disturbing promise to consider it without minding the number of soldiers, policemen and thousands of other innocent Nigerians already murdered and presently physically threatened by IPOB militants on the express orders of Kanu suggest a lack of sense of responsibility on the part of those in power.

“Buhari’s response to the Igbo leaders’ demand could also signal a dangerous endorsement of the amassing of the huge number of arms already imported by IPOB terrorists and their sponsors, which are already being used to cause mayhem across the country.”

“This has also further exposed the extent of complicity and docility of our clerics and other community leaders who were in the forefront of urging tolerance from northerners when they came under incessant attacks, but could not find the voice to speak today.”

Suleiman said the coalition, therefore, resolved among others that any attempt to release Kanu “will inadvertently reduce Nigeria to a completely lawless state where criminals of all shades will commit crimes against the country, and then ask their traditional rulers and other regional or tribal leaders to press for their release.”

The coalition also warned Buhari to reclaim his statesmanship by “refusing to be cajoled into interfering with the standard principle of separation of powers and independence of the judiciary.

“Warn that the North would no longer remain idle when its people are deliberately targeted and massacred while the perpetrators are shielded by criminal tribal bigots who pose as leaders.

“Warn President Buhari that the North has today realized that he places more premium on the pursuit for votes and political popularity for his party, than he does for the sanctity of lives of northerners and security personnel who stake their lives and welfare of families in the service the nation.”
