Group Says Dss Wants To Execute Kanu Secretly
BEVERLY HILLS, January 07, (THEWILL) – The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has alleged that its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is being tortured in detention by the Department of State Services (DSS) with the aim of executing him secretly.
The group, which is campaigning for an independent state for the Igbo, in Nigeria, also alleged that Kanu was very ill and needs urgent medical attention.
“Information getting to us now is that the Director of DSS and Buhari are planning to kill some Igbo-Biafrans working for the DSS in other to secretly execute Nnamdi Kanu,” The group said in a statement published on its website on Thursday.
“For months now reports have been coming to us on how Nnamdi Kanu is been tortured in the dungeon of the DSS. Nnamdi Kanu is reported to be very ill and needs urgent care and treatment but the DSS on the order of Buhari have refused to grant him any treatment.
“Some Igbo-Biafrans who are members of the DSS have expressed their displeasure towards the treatment of Nnamdi Kanu, this resulting to Buhari and the director of DSS secretly plotting way to murder them.
“This information got to us is from a very reliable source and our advice to Buhari is to release Nnamdi Kanu, and also to stop torturing him because any harm done to him, will result to a war Nigeria can't handle.
“We are calling on all IPOB members to get ready for action as instructions will be given by our deputy. We are calling all coordinators to start mobilizing all IPOB members and be on alert.”
Kanu is being tried for treason, ownership of unlawful society and illegal possession of firearms before the federal high court, Abuja,
THEWILL could not get a response from the DSS to the allegations despite spirited efforts.
