18 September 2016, 07:27

Owerri - The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said its leader Nnamdi Kanu is currently critically ill in Kuje prison.

According to the group it got wind of Kanu’s illness from his lawyers who paid him a visit in prison recently.

In a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, on Saturday, the group says Kanu is currently facing serious abdominal pains and a persistent cough.

The statement read, “We have notified the international community about his present condition which include debilitating abdominal pains and occasional tightening of the chest resulting in cough, which has persisted.

“The Department of State Services has this information in its record and we suggest it makes it public for the world to know. Kanu’s loss of blood through bleeding from the nose prompted the agency to send in an external doctor to examine him while in their custody.”

IPOB called on world leaders to come to its rescue in its bid to secure freedom from the Nigerian state.

The statement added, “We are calling on the international community, world leaders like Vladimir Putin of Russia, Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, Angela Merkel of Germany and Donald Trump, whom the good people of America, to come and make the US greater. These leaders and others who recognise the ideals of freedom for all should come to our rescue.”
