The Indigenous People of Biafra have claimed that their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, has refused to eat for seven days out of fear of being poisoned while in the custody of the Department of State.
In a statement in Awka, Anambra State, the separatist group’s Office of Media and Public Secretary stated this.
The organization said that there were plans to inject Kanu with a toxic vaccine that would cause him to die slowly, adding that if carried out, such an action would have disastrous implications.
The statement read in part, “The mission they could not actualise on September 14, 2017 when soldiers invaded his Afaraukwu home during Operation Python Dance is what they want to actualise now.
“His health has been detoriatorating in the DSS cell as he has refused to eat their food since almost one week they kidnapped him.
“His lawyers are being harassed and we pity them and Nigeria if anything happens to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Nigeria Government and security agencies will understand the product we are made of and how prepared we are.
“South East Governors and Ohaneze, including politicians in the region must ensure that nothing bad happens to Nnamdi Kanu because Miyetti Allah and sympathisers of terrorists are going free in the country but ordinary person and innocent citizens are being molested everyday because they are Biafrans. We won’t accept that.
