IPOB Press Release
June 11 2023 | IPOB
The Indigenous People of Biafra has warned the Federal Government of Nigeria and the Department of State Services of any plan by the authorities to ‘subject’ its Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, to any form of surgery while in custody. This was as it claimed the ‘imminent’ move was to further get Kanu’s health ‘ruptured’ and deteriorated while in detention of the DSS custody.
IPOB further said that the peddling of some doctors by the DSS as personal physicians to its leader was not only unfounded but ridiculous. Emma Powerful the media and publicity secretary of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), said this in a statement. The statement read in full:
“This is the sequel to the deteriorating health condition of our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU and the proposed ear surgery by Nigeria Government and DSS medical team. IPOB completely rejects any ill-conceived surgery on our leader, Mazi Nnamdi KANU, the leader of IPOB, who has been illegally and unconstitutionally detained in DSS dungeon for 2 years without charge. We reiterate that he should be released to his personal physicians who will perform the prescribed ear surgery on him.
We want to draw the attention of IPOB worldwide, all lovers of freedom and lovers of Biafra on the dangerous plans to neutralize Mazi Nnamdi Kanu through ear surgery by the enemies on DSS medical team.
It’s obvious that DSS has intentions to eliminate our leader through this ill-conceived ear surgery. That’s why they refused to allow Mazi Nnamdi KANU access to his personal and trusted physicians.
Therefore, we reject any DSS or Nigeria Government sponsored surgery on our leader while he is still being detained illegally in solitary confinement.
It’s true that our leader requires urgent ear surgery from the injury the Nigeria Agents inflicted on him when he was kidnapped and tortured in Kenya however, such surgery will not take place while he is still inside DSS dungeon. What will happen if he develops any medical complications during or after the surgery in the detention facilities? Mazi Nnamdi KANU must be unconditionally released as the courts ordered or released on medical grounds to attend to his health.
If Nigerian DSS could not find a qualified ENT doctor to handle Buhari’s ear infections during his eight years in office, how come DSS suddenly have qualified ENT doctors in their team to carry out ear surgery on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu? The same way Buhari was a leader of a nation is the same way Mazi Nnamdi KANU is a leader of 75m people of Biafra Nation. IPOB is capable of taking our leader to any part of the world for the best medical services.
We, therefore, once again call on the Nigeria government and DSS to release Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU. If anything, untoward happens to him, they will dance to any tune IPOB will play for them. We warn them with their cohorts who are showcasing some doctors as Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s doctors to cease and desist.
We urge Biafrans to oppose the planned ear surgery on Mazi Nnamdi KANU as planned by Nigeria Government and DSS agents.
There are serious indications that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will not make it alive if he goes into any operation under the enemy’s supervision. Mazi Chinasa Nworu will be coming on the air by the weekend to speak on this serious subject and the risk associated with the enemy’s planned ear surgery on our leader.
Let the Nigeria Government and DSS release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to his personal physicians to handle the ear surgery. DSS, who were responsible for his ear injury through the brutal torture, cannot be trusted to heal him by surgery on the same ear. More so, DSS must not force or medically subdue our leader in order to perform any surgery on him because that will be a declaration of war on Biafrans. If they want to see, let them try such rubbish. Mazi Nnamdi KANU needs urgent surgery, and the only option acceptable to us IPOB worldwide is his unconditional release as ordered by the courts or release on medical grounds to his personal physicians for the said ear surgery.
We call on IPOB and MNK legal teams both home and abroad to reject the Nigeria Government’s proposed ear surgery on Mazi Nnamdi KANU. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s wife and his siblings must reject such an offer, too. Mazi Nnamdi KANU is the leader of over 75 million indigenous people of Biafra, and his health is a national concern that must not be handled carelessly. DSS and those parading doctors in Abuja should know that Mazi Nnamdi KANU is no longer owned by the KANU family. He is now the property of 75 million Biafran people.
In summary, IPOB, Ndigbo, and Biafrans say NO EAR SURGERY on our leader, Mazi Nnamdi KANU, by the Nigeria Government, DSS, or any other groups’ medical team while he is still being illegally detained inside DSS dungeon. Instead, we call for his release from illegal detention for his private ENT doctors to handle the ear surgery.”
