Following the shocking Kuje prison attack on Tuesday, the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), says it will “will never take it easy with the Nigerian Government if anything untoward happens to our comrades who are detained” in the facility.
IPOB in a statement issued on Thursday by its spokesperson who has the pseudonym, Emma Powerful, claimed some of its members were “illegally and unjustly” incarcerated at the Medium Security Custodial Centre, Kuje, demanding that they should be immediately released.
“We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wish to draw the world’s attention to the Nigeria Government and its security agencies, especially the Army and DSS agents’ instruction to the bandits rampaging the North to attack the Kuje correctional centre in Abuja,” IPOB’s statement reads.
“The Nigeria security agencies, especially the military and DSS agents in a covert action detailing a systematic strategy to eliminate IPOB members detained in Kuje prison and yesterday’s attack has confirmed our earlier intel.
“We want to let the world know that IPOB members were profiled and detained in Kuje prison yards for simply being persons indigenous to Biafra and of Igbo race.
“We have their details and want them alive because if anything untoward happens to our comrades who are detained in Kuje, IPOB will never take it easy with Nigeria Government and her security agencies.
“It is high time to release these innocent folks who were detained illegally and unjustly, Nigeria cannot continue to detain them indefinitely while allowing terrorists and bandits to come and slaughter them under disguised arrangements by the Buhari-Fulani administration.”
