29 August 2016, 16:07Tony Smart

Abuja - The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has raised alarm over a calculated attempt to suffocate and kill its leader Nnamdi Kanu by the FG and DSS.

The group, in reaction to the shooting of teargas by prison officers at inmates, said there is plot to use prison officers of the Kuje prison to carry out the plan.

The group alleged that teargas and bullets were shot into Kanu's room during the shootout for him to die systematically.

"The federal government and it's secret police DSS through their prison authority and warders in charge of Kuje prisons have perfected arrangements to stiff life out of our leader Nnamdi Kanu and those with him in the prison in disguise of separating the inmates who were having misunderstanding with fellow inmates".

"However, we observed that The federal government and security agents through their prison waders orchestrated violence in the prison in other to have excuses to eliminate Mazi Nnamdi kanu".

"The orchestrated violence by the federal government and DSS through the prison authority to be executed by prison warders started shooting sporadically towards the doors and winds where our leader Nnamdi Kanu and two other IPOB members detained".

"The prison warders went to search some prison inmates very far from where mazi Nnamdi Kanu and two others were kept all of a sudden they started shooting life bullets towards the direction where our leader were kept, the cannon teargas was thrown inside the room he stays.
Right now, we don't know the condition of our leader mazi Nnamdi Kanu and others detained alongside with him".

"We are calling the international community, the United Nations UN, the African Union AU, lovers of freedom, Amnesty international AI. Human Rights watch/NGO's and the well meaning Nigerians who understands the meaning of self determination to come for our rescue because right now we don't know the life condition of our leader".

News24 earlier reported that there was pandemonium at the Kuje Prisons, Abuja as prison officials shot teargas at inmates.

The shooting was said to be a fallout of the last jail break in which some top officials were reprimanded.
