Nnamdi Kanu is on hunger strike?


– Nnamdi Kanu, the leading member of IPOB and Radio Biafra director, rejects to eat any food 

– “There is serious plan to kill Mr. Kanu by his persecutors,” IPOB members said

Nnamdi Kanu, who is has been in detention since 2015, will no longer consume any food, including those provided by his family members, to avoid being poisoned by the Department of State Security (DSS).

The announcement contianed in the statement released by the Indigenous People of Biafra  (IPOB) and signed by its spokesmen Emma Mmezu and Dr Clifford Iroanya.

It reads in part: “There is serious plan to kill Mr. Kanu by his persecutors who are confused on what to do about the charges they preferred against him, just as they said they will resume their protests. We have advised our leader to reject every food, including those brought by close family members because the DSS that always scrutinize his food before allowing it in as might poison the food.

He will also not mix with other prisoners because we are aware that Interior Ministry officials working through the Prison Service have planted their agents pretending to be prisoners, in order to spy and report on him to DSS. We have eyes everywhere so we get regular reports on his health status. Nigeria knows the consequences should anything happen to our leader because in every family in Biafra lands are hardcore IPOB. 

Many people are willing to die for him so Buhari led All Progressives Congress Federal Government should tread carefully with the life of Mr. Kanu because hell will be let loose if anything happens to him, Nigeria will never be the same should anything untoward happens to Kanu. The bail refusal is not a problem for us because IPOB wants the trial to go ahead, so we can expose and disgrace a corrupt judicial system hamstrung by the whims of a dictator in the the present government of Nigeria.”

Earlier, the pro-Biafra group alleged that DSS plans to kill their leader through arranged car accident, calling on Amnesty Onternational and other relevant human rights organisations to look into the matter and take appropriate measures.

Yesterday, Mr Kanu, who the United Kingdom citizen, has sent a letter to the British government to intervene in his case and push for his release.

Kanu was arraigned on November 23, 2015 in an Abuja Magistrate Court for the first time for charges of “criminal conspiracy, intimidation and membership of an illegal organisation.”
