You Will Be Held Responsible If Nnamdi Kanu Is Harmed – IPOB Warn Orji Uzor Kalu

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has described as suspicious the visit of the Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu to its leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) last Monday. IPOB stated that the mission of the visit was unknown and could endanger the IPOB leader’s life.

The pro-Biafra group reiterated that Orji Uzor Kalu was one of the politicians that funded the extraordinary rendition of its leader from Kenya to Nigeria, adding that he should be held accountable for any harm that befalls Nnamdi Kanu.

IPOB stated this in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, on Saturday and it read; “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is raising alarm over the unsolicited visit of Orji Uzor Kalu to Nnamdi Kanu whenever our leader is detained.

“We don’t know the mission of Orji Uzor Kalu over the visits and we are worried. We, therefore, wish to put the world on notice that Orji Uzor Kalu will be held responsible for whatever happens to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in detention.

“We are not comfortable with Orji Uzor Kalu’s suspicious visits to our leader. We don’t know whose interest he protects. We will also be hold responsible those who permitted him to see our leader in detention.

“The DSS allowed him access against court order which all visitors including Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers complied with. We all knew that Orji Uzor Kalu’s name is among those who bankrolled and sponsored the extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria,” IPOB stated.

Nnamdi Kanu’s lead counsel, Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, had also called on Orji Uzor Kalu to explain to the world how he visited Nnamdi Kanu on Monday through violation of the secret police protocol.

Nnamdi Kanu was abducted in Kenya and brought back to Nigeria by the Nigerian Government to continue his trial bordering on terrorism before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja. His case has been adjourned till 18 January 2022 for further hearing.

However, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) yesterday expressed fear over what it called unsolicited visit of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, to its leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in DSS facility, warning that if anything happens to Nnamdi Kanu, both Orji Uzor Kalu and the DSS will be held responsible.

IPOB alleged that the Abia State former Governor is fond of visiting its leader anytime he is detained and IPOB has always taken such visits with suspicion. A statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, entitled “If anything happens to our leader Orji Uzor Kalu should be held responsible, said they are not comfortable with the ex-governors visit to their leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at the DSS headquarters.

IPOB’s statement read in part; “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is raising alarm over the unsolicited visit of Orji Uzor Kalu to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu whenever our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is detained.”

“We don’t know the mission of Orji Uzor Kalu over the visits and we are worried. We therefore, wish to put the world on notice that Orji Uzor Kalu, will be held responsible for whatever happens to our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in detention.

“We are not comfortable with Orji Uzor Kalu’s suspicious visits to our leader. We don’t know whose interest he is trying to protect. We will also hold responsible, those who permitted him to see our leader in detention.

“The DSS allowed him access against Court order which all visitors including Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers complied with. We all knew that Orji Uzor Kalu’s name is among those who bankrolled and sponsored the extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria,” the statement concluded.
