IPOB Press Release
January 31 2023 | IPOB
The global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the Leadership and command of Mazi Nnamdi Okwu Kanu, the Prophet wishes to draw the attention of the public to the press release from Nigeria DSS dismissing the worsening health of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi KANU and labelling IPOB’s press releases as political statements. We want to remind DSS and the public that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s deteriorating health is true and can’t be termed a political statement. Nigeria government and her secret police DSS are very much aware that Mazi Nnamdi KANU’s health is failing him from their poisoning, denial of adequate medication for his known ailment and torture by means of starvation as he continues to be held illegality in the DSS in solitary confinement.
We will not be distracted by the ranting contained in the DSS press statement released through anonymous persons attempting to dismiss and play down the dire health condition of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra. The reason for this is to distract people from the alarm that has been raised on their intention to systematically and covertly eliminate our leader. The Nigeria government should know by now that IPOB has zero interest in Nigeria politics. The government can play politics with anything but not with the life of our leader.
The DSS should explain why they have refused Mazi Nnamdi KANU access to a doctor since the second week of December 2022. Why has he not been allowed to take his drugs according to prescription? It’s on record that Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU is very sick, and he is dying slowly in the DSS solitary confinement. IPOB members worldwide and Ndigbo will not accept any explanation from anyone if anything should happen to him.
We insist that Mazi Nnamdi KANU has been poisoned inside DSS solitary confinement, we maintain our position. If DSS is denying this, we demand that DSS allow IPOB leadership and lawyers to bring independent medical specialists to conduct comprehensive medical tests on our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU.
Alternatively, the DSS Director should take Mazi Nnamdi KANU to a hospital for a comprehensive medical test, and the test result should be made public. We demand to know why the food he eats comes out from his mouth and why he smells his stomach odour from his mouth.
Anybody else giving counter press releases saying that Mazi Nnamdi KANU is not poisoned must know that if anything untoward happens to him, he or she will understand that this is not an issue of brother or sister. Such heartless fellows will be visited by Biafrans as enemies.
Mazi Nnamdi KANU is an institution. He is not representing his family but Biafrans. He was not abducted, illegally renditioned, and detained because of his family background. No, it was because he demanded for Biafra to be granted referendum and freedom.
Therefore, the fight for his release is a national assignment for all Biafrans and lovers of freedom and not just for those who may be related to him by blood.
We reiterate our demand on the Nigerian government to urgently and unconditionally release Mazi Nnamdi KANU as ruled by the Nigerian Appeal Court ordering his discharge and acquittal since October 13, 2022, so that we can secure proper medical examination for him to avoid the unexpected. Mazi Nnamdi KANU is not part of Nigerian politics and therefore the Nigeria government MUST not toy with his life. Mazi represents the existence and future of over 80 million Biafrans. Many have given up their lives for him, and many are ready to do the same again if duty calls. A stitch in time saves nine.
