The Indigenous People of Biafra has threatened to ally with Russia if the British Government continues to prevaricate over the detention of Nnamdi Kanu by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government.
The secessionists said if the British prevarications continued about Kanu’s release, it would take its campaigns to Russia and formally informed the
Vladimir Putin government that Ukrainian war weapons were financed from the “resources stolen from Biafra through British aided Nigeria Military occupation.
IPOB said this on Sunday in a statement made available to the press by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, urging the British Government to cause President Muhammadu Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu to the leadership of the Igbo apex socio-cultural organisation, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo for safekeeping.
The secessionists said their appeal was predicted on an intelligence report of a plan by terrorists to attack the facility of the Department of State Services( DSS) in Abuja where Kanu is currently being incarcerated.
Worried by the litanies of attacks on prison facilities in the country in recent times without what the group called tangible investigations, IPOB said the best option would be to release Kanu to the Ohanaeze President General, Prof George Obiozor and/or to the 93year-old first republic aviation minister, Chief Mbazuluike Amaechi.
Our correspondent recalled that Amaechi had personally led a delegation to Buhari for the release of Kanu, stating that was one sure way the growing insecurity in the South-East geopolitical zone would abate. But the president in a reply said,
“I won’t release Nnamdi Kanu, let him face the law”
But in the Sunday statement, IPOB said,”We urge the British Government to jettison pretense and direct Nigeria Government and to Release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally or send him back to UK where he lives, let him be return back to Amaechi Mbazuruike or professor George Obiozor for his safety.
“Britain must realise that we sincerely had never written nor taken our campaign to Russia, formally informing them that finances Ukrainian war weapons from resources stolen from Biafra through British aided Nigeria Military occupation and media controlled massacre of our people. Boris Johnson( former British Prime Minister) and Buhari at Chogbm in Kigali, Rwanda never agreed to free the innocent man Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Igbos continue to ask question why the British eternal hatred on them.
“We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to reiterate our earlier emphasis over intended make-believe plan to attack DSS facility Abuja by already drawn up stunt actors (DSS agents) at the very location where our leader Mazi Nnamdi is in held incarcerated haven successfully tested with Kuje prison without consequences.
“The plan was hatched by Nigeria Government with strategic and tactical input of UK Government, the reason for UK and Nigeria alliance in such cawordice and evil plan is due to their disdain for allowing Indigenous People across the world to enjoy freedom such as the British enjoy Brexit from the European Union.
This alliance perceives Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as a stumbling block from their modern day oppressive tendencies therefore wants him dead having tried several unsuccessful attempts in Afaraukwu, London, USA, Kenya and even in Abuja for which Chukwu Okike Abiama( God) had always proven himself.
” IPOB intelligence unit, the M.Branch intercepted this purported plan by Britain and Nigeria to stop Biafra agitation and freedom from Nigeria and Nigeria and its allies have decided to replicate what they did in 1967-1970 and still on the way to do it again against the innocent citizens of Biafra. The world should take note.
“The world should take note because if anything untoward happens to our leader Mazi Nnamdi (The leader of over 75 Million of fanatical lovers of Biafra freedom), in DSS custody nobody should blame IPOB for inevitable and uncontrollable boundless calamitous consequences that would befall to whom it may not concern; know it that your silence or accomplices hardens our conscience towards the pursuit of this great nation called Biafra. IPOB needs unconditional release of our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu because there is no prison in the South that is safe for him, therefore we still need him released unconditionally to avoid dangerous terms IPOB may take against Nigeria.
“There are many jail breaks in Nigeria since Buhari and his APC party took over power and nothing was done or checked out the cause of these prison breaks, the number of prison breaks was so alarming and therefore no country in the world experienced the kind of jail breaks in the history.
‘It is not our business that the notorious FBI most wanted super-criminal cop Abba Kyari was among major reasons for the “Kuje prison break” and has been whisked to Ghana, as at now, and we demand IPOB member’ s corpse in Kuje be released to us for proper funeral.”
