The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Monday accused some top politicians of plotting to kill its leader, Nnamdi Kanu and other principal officers of the group.
In a statement made available to journalists in Awka by the group’s media and publicity secretary, IPOB claimed that huge amount of money and political patronages had been offered to certain people to execute the plot.
The group stressed that any attack on Kanu would radicalise the Biafra struggle in a manner nobody could stop.
According to IPOB, certain governors, an elder statesman, a socio-cultural organisation, a security chief and a religious head are behind the plans.
The group recalled that a lot of people have been massacred in cold blood even as others laid down their lives for Biafra freedom between 1967 and 1970 as well as during the peaceful protests and rallies in Biafra land.
They accused the Nigeria state and people they described as political errand boys and contractors of doing nothing to stop or condemn the massacre.
The statement reads in part: “But we promise them that any attack on Nnamdi Kanu or assassination attempt will radicalise the struggle for Biafra independence to the point which no one can contain.
“We call on the federal government to conduct a referendum in all the Biafra territories for the masses to determine where they want to belong, instead of forcing them to stay together in a cage called Nigeria.
“If the masses of Biafra decide otherwise then Biafra quest can be put to stop but for now IPOB has passed the Rubicon, no going back. We still maintain our stand that we are not asking for war or any confrontation with any person, group or Nigeria state.
“We are putting all the world leaders, Amnesty International, Human Right Watch, relevant human rights organisations, people of good conscience around the world on notice to prevail on Nigeria Government and her Hausa Fulani dominated security outfits to stop their evil plots against our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB members worldwide.
“We are reminding those evil plotters that if anything happen to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has been using non violent methods for Biafra liberation since the inception of IPOB that they will experience what they have not seen before since the creation of the contraption called Nigeria by British.”
