Biafra: IPOB threatens to shutdown Nigeria over claims that Kanu is starved in prison
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Monday threatened to embark on the kind of protest that will shut down the country if anything happens to its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
Spokesperson of the pro-Biafra group, Emma Powerful issued the threat while speaking with journalists in Nnewi, Anambra State.
The group’s spokesman alleged that its detained leader was being denied access to food and toiletries and had been subjected to serious intimidation and harassment by some prison officials in Kuje Prison.
He alleged that the inhuman treatment Kanu was subjected to was meant to demoralise him “as directed by the Federal Government’s agents, who are now convinced that he will be set free by the court at the end of the day and they now resorted to denying him access to food in order to starve him to death.”
