The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who has been in the custody of the Nigerian Department of State Services (DSS) for three months now is in serious danger; he has been transferred to a prison facility which also holds three condemned members of Boko Haram – this means possible death.
First, the people of Biafra do not understand why Activist Nnamdi Kanu, who is also the Director of Radio Biafra, should be kept in prison and this long. Jail was meant for inmates and individuals deprived of their liberty and guilty of offences for which there is a prison sentence. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has not committed any crime, Biafrans say, and has not been sentenced, so why send him to prison?
Although there has been four court orders, ordering the Nigerian DSS to release Kanu immediately, but instead of that order to be obeyed, the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, has taken the Laws in his hands, acting as Lawyer and Judge, and condemning and sentencing Mr Kanu, to die in Prison.
Biafran Writers, who are very much concerned about their own, and thus the brain behind the Danger Alert, say that Nnamdi Kanu is now in serious danger and may lose his life if nothing is done fast. A confirmed information from a reliable source, has it that Mr Kanu has been merged in the same cell with three dangerous condemned Boko Haram inmates.
The Biafran writers also said that Buhari is trying every possible strategy to get rid of Kanu, but does not want Nigerians to know that he is behind Kanu’s extended detention. Buhari’s plan is to subject Kanu to all form of unimaginable torture in the hands of the terrorist inmates, which will invariable lead to his untimely death, they claim.
What is certain is that the control system and safety of Nigeria prisons is very bad, uncivilized and is not supervised, so it’s very easy to have an inmate murdered by fellow inmates. Biafran Writers laments.
The Biafrans are also concerned that in all, the following conditions surrounding Kanus’ new cell abode is unfavorable to his survival.
1. Minimum insulation: contacts with other inmates are maximized. Mr Kanu is cramped into a single cell with three deadly Boko Haram suspects and has no access to the common areas of the prison.
2. No surveillance: There’s no CCTV or any kind of surveillance in this prison. There’s no safety between the inmates, anything can happen and no one will be held responsible.
3. Banned communication : Buhari had banned Kanu from speaking with hs family and lawyer. He is also not allowed to make calls to anyone – complete solitary.
Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra [IPOB] and all Biafrans, are calling on International Communities and world Leaders, to step in and prevent the death of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu. They added that if Nnamdi Kanu dies in prison in the hands of these Boko Haram inmates, President Buhari will be held responsible and therefore Nigeria will face the wrath of Biafrans.
Does this mean another war?
