The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has alleged that the
riot at the Kuje prisons was a calculated attempt by the
Federal Government and the Department of State Services,
DSS, to assassinate its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
IPOB made this allegation in a statement issued on Monday
by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma
The statement revealed that that there was teargas and gun
shots in Nnamdi Kanu’s room for him to die systematically,
adding that the federal government and the DSS, “through
their prison authority and warders in charge of Kuje prisons
have perfected arrangements to stiff life out of our leader
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and those with him in the prison in
disguise of separating the inmates who were having
misunderstanding with fellow inmates.
According to the statement, “the federal government and
security agents through their prison waders orchestrated
violence in the prison in order to have excuses to eliminate
Mazi Nnamdi kanu.
“The orchestrated violence by the federal government and
DSS through the prison authority to be executed by prison
warders started shooting sporadically towards the doors and
winds where our leader mazi Nnamdi Kanu and two other
IPOB members detained.
“The prison warders went to search some prison inmates very
far from where Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and two others were kept
all of a sudden they started shooting life bullets towards the
direction where our leader were kept, the cannon teargas was
thrown inside the room he stays.
“Right now, we don’t know the condition of our leader Mazi
Nnamdi Kanu and others detained alongside with him.
“We are calling the international community, the United
Nations UN, the African Union AU, lovers of freedom, Amnesty
international AI. Human Rights watch/NGO’s and the well
meaning Nigerians who understands the meaning of self
determination to come for our rescue because right now we
don’t know the life condition of our leader,” the statement
