The Indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, has said former Governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, should be held responsible if anything happens to its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
IPOB claimed Kalu’s visit to Kanu while in DSS detention was worrisome and the purpose of his visit was suspicious.
The group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, said the mission of the Senate Chief Whip is unknown.
In a statement he issued, Powerful said: “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 protects. We will also hold responsible, those who permitted him to see our leader in detention.”
The separatist group also vowed to hold the Department of State Services, DSS, responsible for any harm on Kanu.
IPOB wondered why Kalu would be allowed access to its leader despite court ruling.
“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,” he added.
