Indigenous People of Biafra ( IPOB ), a banned Igbo secessionist group, has expressed concern about the whereabouts of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, after the Department of State Services (DSS) failed to produce him in court for the commencement of his trial on Monday.
According to a statement from IPOB ‘s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, which was made accessible to Ripples Nigeria on Tuesday, Kanu may have been assassinated while in the custody of the DSS.
The failure of the secret police to bring the Biafra agitator in court, according to Powerful, is an indication that he may have been killed.
Their statement says:
“We are no longer comfortable with this development. We have enough grounds to suspect foul play.
“With the failure of DSS to produce our leader in court today without any cogent reason and coupled with the torture meted out to him since his abduction in Kenya, we are worried about the safety of our Leader.
“The failure of DSS to produce our leader in court today confirms our fear over the uncertainty concerning his health.
“Considering his deteriorating health condition since he was kidnapped and the refusal of DSS to grant him access to his personal physicians, it is possible that our Leader may have been killed.
“But we want the Fulani federal government to know that if anything should happen to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, they will hear from us.”
