IPOB opposes alleged ear surgery for Nnamdi Kanu
The Indigenous People of Biafra has warned the Federal Government and the Department of State Services against any plan to subject its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, to an ear surgery while in custody.
IPOB’s Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful, who said this in a statement on Sunday, claimed that the alleged surgery was a plot to eliminate Kanu.
Powerful said, “IPOB completely rejects any ill-conceived surgery on our leader, Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB, who has been illegally and unconstitutionally detained in DSS dungeon for two 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 to the dangerous plans to neutralise 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 Nnamdi Kanu access to his personal and trusted physicians.
“Therefore, we reject any DSS or Nigerian 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? Nnamdi Kanu must be unconditionally released as the courts ordered or released on medical grounds to attend to his health.”
