The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPoB) has raised alarm over the life of its detained leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu following what it termed unsolicited visit of former Abia Governor, Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu to him at the DSS custody.
The lawmaker on Monday visited the pro-Biafran group leader.
IPOB, in a statement by the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said it was not comfortable with Kalu’s visit, warning that he should be held responsible if anything happens to its leader.
It also said those who permitted him to see its leader would as well be held accountable.
The statement reads: “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 wherever he 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 hold responsible, those who permitted him to see our leader in detention.
“The DSS allowed him access against court order which all visitors including Kanu’s lawyers comply 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.”
