IPOB Slams UN, EU, AU, ECOWAS On Silence Over Nnamdi Kanu’s Continued Detention

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has announced that it is no longer comfortable with the illegal detention of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

IPOB alleged that the international community continued to watch silently while Kanu deteriorated in solitary confinement.

It was found that the group made its position known on Wednesday in a statement signed by the group’s media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful.

IPOB said it is unfortunate that the international community is watching in silence the deteriorating condition of its leader in government custody despite orders for his release by the United Nations and a Nigerian court.

The group said it was therefore not satisfied with the silence of the international community on the issue of Kanu.

It states, “We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Mazi Namdi Kanu express our displeasure at the silence of the United Nations (UN), the European Union (EU), the African Union (AU) and ECOWAS because Nigeria is facing local blatantly disobeys and international law regarding the unconditional release of our leader.

“We are saddened as the international community watches in silence as the leader’s health deteriorates in the solitary confinement dungeon of the Nigerian government, where he has been held illegally and against all UN and Nigerian court orders for nearly 2 years.

“We believe the Nigerian government wants our leader to die in custody. It is also possible that the DSS administered him a slow-acting poison, which caused his health to continue to deteriorate and eventually kill him.

“In what we believe to be a plot to kill our leader, the Nigeria Supreme Court, the Constitutional Court refused to consider the appeal of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers over his deteriorating health. Instead, the Supreme Court gave a wickedly long moratorium of 4 months to an innocent man who was exonerated and acquitted by the judges of the Court of Appeal.

“In all these human rights and court abuses, there seems to be a conspiratorial silence between international organizations and their partner human rights organisations.

“As the health of our leader Maji Nnamdi Kanu continues to deteriorate and the Nigerian government refuses to comply with legal orders and the world maintains this criminal silence, IPOB is doing everything within our power to ensure that Will ensure that our leaders do not die in custody.”
