IPOB Threatens To Cripple Buhari Government, Says Nigeria's Secret Police Torturing Nnamdi Kanu

July 5, 2021

IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, warned that the separatist group would cripple Nigeria if any harm befalls Kanu while in the custody of the secret police.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has accused the Department of State Services (DSS) of torturing its leader Nnamdi Kanu since he was arrested and detained last Tuesday.

IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, warned that the separatist group would cripple Nigeria if any harm befalls Kanu while in the custody of the secret police.

In a statement, Powerful stated that the Nigerian government was provoking the secessionist group.

Powerful said: “We declare without equivocations that the Nigeria Government should not take our calmness for granted.

“Should anything untoward happen to our leader while in detention or even after, we will totally cripple Nigeria and its Government!

“Our intelligence units are following up events, including the torture being meted out to him since his abduction.

“The world should see how the wicked Nigerian government is provoking us.”

The Nigerian government had, in connection with foreign security agencies, rearrested Kanu and repatriated him to Nigeria to continue his trial.

Kanu was brought before Justice Binta Nyako-led Federal High Court in Abuja to continue his trial bordering on treason.

Though the Nigerian government is silent on the country the IPOB leader was arrested from, his family members claimed that Kanu was nabbed in Kenya.
