IPOB Accuses DSS Of Subjecting Nnamdi Kanu To Torture
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a banned organization, has accused the Department of State Services (DSS) of torturing its beleaguered leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in jail.
IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, made the claim in a statement released on Wednesday.
The organization alleged that the Muhammadu Buhari government’s secret police had continued to mistreat and humiliate the group’s leader while he was in their custody.
The DSS has denied Kanu access to his religious materials and has refused to allow the illegal organization’s leader change his clothing, according to the proscribed organisation.
IPOB, on the other hand, has asked Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and all foreign missions to pressure the federal government to unconditionally free Kanu.
The statement reads:
“The global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), wish to put the whole world on notice that our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is currently under severe torture and humiliation in the hands of Nigeria Government at the Abuja headquarters of the Department of Security Services, DSS, where he is under custody.
“We condemn this torture and the flagrant abuse of his human rights by DSS. Since his abduction from Kenya on June 19, 2021, till date they have been touring him. They have denied him access to his religious materials.
“They have never allowed him to change his clothes while on the other hand, the same hypocritical Government is sewing new clothes for bandits and mass murderers who have purportedly repented.
“Our leader has been subjected to unimaginable torture since his rendition to Nigeria. The world will be shocked at further revelations of what he has passed through ever since then.
“Therefore, the global world, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and all diplomatic missions in Abuja Nigeria should prevail on Nigeria to release Kanu, unconditionally so he will not die in detention.”
